Künker Auction 346 by Künker GmbH ……
Dear bidders and coin enthusiasts,
Our rarity auction ended with some delay, but also with an impressive total hammer price of combined 9.3 million euros, not including buyer’s premium.
This time, due to the global pandemic, today’s event could not take place as usual at the World Money Fair in Berlin. Since the fair in Berlin was canceled, we decided to hold the auction in Osnabrück as an exception. Complying with the new regulations passed by the German government, the auction could only take place without any bidders in the room. For this reason, we spend the day in a much less crowded auction room as we are used to today in the Vienna House Remarque Hotel and took your written bids, telephone, and online bids from there.
Since you, dear customers, were also just as flexible in adapting to the new situation, the auction could be concluded with great success despite the not always easy surrounding conditions. You can see the details in the highlights below, which speak for themselves.
It is true that we proved today that we can conduct such a successful auction even under these conditions. Nevertheless, we would like nothing more than to welcome you, dear customers, back in our auction room as soon as possible!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for your great interest, your active participation, and your trust in us. Also for you, a lot has changed in the last year. We are very pleased that you remain loyal to us – and to numismatics and phaleristics in general.
Your Künker Team
