Have you ever wondered why there were so many large gold coins weighing several ducats in the early modern period? We’ll show you with the help of some spectacular examples from the upcoming Numismatica Genevensis auction.
On 16 November 2021, Numismatica Genevensis will be auctioning a very important rarity: 5 francs, 1886 – the rarest silver crown of the Latin Monetary Union. Produced around the same time as the Morgan dollar, its rareness also shares the same economic and historical background: the overproduction of silver in the American town of Virginia City, Nevada.
Numismatica Genevensis SA presents their three new auctions: 100 Roman gold coins, World Rarities with special collections focusing on medieval Sicily, Uri and Thailand as well as spectacular individual lots and, in auction 15, the first part of an extensive collection of coins from Geneva.
Once more a Numismatica Genevensis auction contains coins that could please a king. All objects are extremely beautiful – check for yourself and watch these films with a selection of the highlights.
