The Royal Mint’s Second Auction Approaches
Paddles at the ready – The Royal Mint’s second auction in conjunction with Sovereign Rarities is fast approaching, offering an exciting range of historic coins at auction.
Following last year’s inaugural auction which saw a total of £2m from 613 lots, of predominately British historic issues, The Royal Mint and Sovereign Rarities, a numismatic dealership and auction house based in Mayfair, London, will once again provide numismatists with a fantastic opportunity to add to an existing collection, or start one with the highest quality coins that have been carefully and professionally researched by the expert team at The Royal Mint.
This year’s auction will have 405 lots on offer, including a range of impressive numismatic collectables. Highlights include a large gold medal commemorating the Coronation of George VI plus a rare pattern Two Pound Sovereign of George III dated 1820 which is one of only 60 examples struck by The Royal Mint. There is also an interesting selection of coins from the Commonwealth, a rare time in history when Britain had no monarchy.
Bidding is available in person, online or through a Royal Mint representative on your behalf.
Taking place on Tuesday 24th September, the auction is sure to attract a wide range of interest from the numismatic community both nationally and internationally.
