Gadoury Auction Features NGC-Certified European Gold Rarities

By Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC) ……

The October 2022 sale features several NGC-graded coins likely to realize six figures.

An upcoming Éditions V. Gadoury auction features two rare gold coins that are certified by Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC): one from the Italian king with the longest reign and the other from a purported French king who never tasted real power. Bidding for Monaco 2022 Auction is currently underway, with the sale concluding on October 15, 2022.

A France 1832 Essai Gold Piefort 5 Francs is one of the top lots being offered in the sale. The coin (lot 374) features Henri, Count of Chambord, who was disputedly the king of France for a week in 1830 when he was nine years old. Graded NGC PF 65 Ultra Cameo, this particular coin has the higher grade of the two examples recorded in the NGC Census. It has a starting price of €100,000 (about $96,400).
