Künker to Offer Samel Collection of Jewish Coins

By Künker GmbH ……

Dear bidders and collectors,

All those interested in Jewish numismatics have been talking about it for weeks: on 17 March 2020, we will auction off the Samel Collection in Osnabrück.

It is a private collection of major importance, which was on display in 1993 and ’94 at the Munich State Coin Collection in collaboration with the Israel Museum Jerusalem. Numerous media reported on it, especially because the then-newly appointed ambassador of Israel, Avi Primos, came to the opening in Munich.

The catalogue was written by Prof. Dr. Johannes Nollé, who delivered with his comments a scholarly review reflecting the current state of research.

We have already exhibited the coins to a wide audience in the context of the New York International Numismatic Convention (NYINC). Visitors of Numismata Munich, too, will have the chance of viewing the entire material from Friday (6 March) to Sunday (8 March) at Hotel INNSIDE, Mies-van-der-Rohe-Straße 10.

Auction 334 will take place on:

Tuesday, March 17, 2020, from 2.00 p.m. to 6.30 p.m.

  • Lots No. 2001 – 2599: The Samel Collection of Jewish Coins and Medals

Seize the opportunity to see this important collection!

Many regards from Osnabrueck,

Your Künker Team
