Künker eLive Auction 71 of Ancient and World Coins is Online

Dear bidders and coin enthusiasts,

The Künker eLive Auction 71 is online.

More than 3,200 lots with coins and medals from the ancient world to modern times as well as orders and decorations from all over the world await you from May 9-13, 2022. The kick-off will be exactly 399 coins from the ancient world. The spectrum ranges from the Celts to Asia. This time, Greek coins form a focus, with an impressive series of tetradrachms by Alexander the Great.

Roman coins are again represented in large numbers, from the Republic to Late Antiquity.

Subsequently, we present coins from Europe and overseas, some of them with beautiful individual pieces. Among others, we would like to mention a bronze medal issued by the city of Liège on the death of its bishop van Bommel or a very rare 1861 5 lira piece from Florence – as well as a Riksdaler from Stockholm minted in 1805 by Gustav IV Adolf, 1792-1809.

For all collectors of Chinese coinage, we recommend you to take a look at a small series of Chinese silver bars, a special highlight being a silver bar of 50 taels (weight: 1.8 kg).

We would also like to mention a large collection of Habsburg coins, including an excellent thaler of Ferdinand I, 1522-1558-1564 from Hall, as well as a nice series of bracteates from an old collection. Something special is concealed behind the collection concepts of two series, one deals with the nominal of the imperial town (Reichsort), and the other presents interesting architectural representations on European medals.

The last two auction days will be devoted to phaleristics.

On Thursday, two important collections are able to dissolve. On the one hand the collection of Hans Giesen, his collection focus was on the Federal Republic of Germany, the Sovereign Order of Malta, the Holy See, and Vatican City State; as well as the collection of German regimental jubilee medals of Ulrich Schrock.

On Friday, objects from various possessions will follow, including an estate of a medal dealer and an important collection of European states as well as orders and decorations from all over the world.

We hope you enjoy our eLive Auction 71.

Many regards from Osnabrück
