SINCONA Takes a Stand On Russian Numismatics

Is it legitimate to trade with Russian coins? At least since Russia’s attack on the Ukraine this is an open question. Jürg Richter, managing director and auctioneer of SINCONA, has commented on the subject before the start of the SINCONA autumn auctions.


SINCONA’s Fall Auctions 2022 feature in four catalogues the third part of the SINCONA British Collection, Swiss coins and medals of the collector Max Walty-Hüssy, as well as a collection of Russian coins and medals.


Once again, numerous bidders jumped at the extensive range of high-quality coins and medals from SINCONA AG. In many cases the estimates have been doubled, even increased tenfold!

On 19 May 2022, SINCONA presented a new publication on Swiss numismatics. Hanspeter Koch has dedicated a monograph to the five-franc coin with the portrait of an ‘alpine herdsman’. And the really special part is this: this book is available in ‘very fine’ or ‘extremely fine’ condition.


3,700 lots with an estimate of 7.6 million francs are featured in the upcoming spring auction of SINCONA AG. The sales include the second part of the British Collection as well as the Köhlmoos collection.


SINCONA’s Fall Auctions had a total estimate for the 3,800 lots of about 6.1 million Swiss francs and realised 16.55 million Swiss francs. This demonstrated vividly how much high-quality modern coins, medals and banknotes are sought-after.


SINCONA offers almost 4,000 lots with a total estimate of 6 million Swiss francs in their fall auctions. The sale includes an extensive selection of coins, medals, banknotes from Russia, Switzerland, Great Britain and many wonderful special collections.
