Heritage Auctions: Dresden Collection of Hispanic and Brazilian Proclamation Medals

The newest monthly world coin auction from Heritage spotlights the Dresden Collection of Hispanic and Brazilian Proclamation Medals.

This spectacular collection includes 150 lots, 90% of which are mint state, and is heaviest in material from Mexico, Peru, and Brazil. It was assembled from 1952 through 1959 and hasn’t seen the light of day for 60 years. About a dozen Brazilian patterns in the collection were previously unseen. Additionally, very rare early Dutch medals related to Brazil are included in this offering.

Bidding on this auction will take place exclusively through HA.com, with a live session beginning at 7 PM on Sunday, October 27. This auction will be followed next month by an offering of more Betts, American and British medals from the same consignor.

Highlights will be available for preview October 17-19 at the US-Mexican Numismatic Association show in Scottsdale, Arizona.
