Künker Auction 352: World Gold Coins of the Hermann Schwarz Collection

Dear bidders and coin enthusiasts,

This is one of the best moments in the life of any coin dealer: being able to offer a collection that has remained untouched for two generations.

Hermann Schwarz (1880-1961), owner of the oldest Bavarian publishing house specialized in forms, had witnessed the period of hyperinflation after the First World War and learned from it to always invest a considerable part of his fortune in gold coins. In Auction 352, we have the pleasure to offer you these gold coins, which Schwarz mostly acquired from Munich coin dealers.

You can look forward to an impressive ensemble. The spectrum ranges from ancient coins, which will be on sale Saturday, 25 September following Auction 351, to impressive rarities from all over the world, on sale on Monday, 27 September, to issues of the German States and coins of the German Empire on 27 and 28 September.

As is the case with many good old collections, connoisseurs will find rarities of the finest quality alongside more common pieces of “very fine” quality. Accordingly, estimates range from prices just above the material value to five-digit figures.

You can look forward to this splendid auction sale!

And don’t forget: On Thursday, 16 September 2021 at 7 p.m. Central European Time, we invite you once again to an online presentation by Professor Dr. Johannes Nollé (in German). The presentation is entitled Preußen – gefürchtet, gehasst und bewundert.

Best regards from Osnabrück,

Your Künker Team
