Daniel Frank Sedwick Offers Educational Seminars Before October 29th Auction

Daniel Frank Sedwick’s TREASURE, WORLD and U.S. COIN AUCTION #18 is in full swing with just two weeks remain before the THIRD LIVE FLOOR auction kicks off with 1250 lots of choice material in all areas of world coins and shipwreck treasures.


However, even before the auction itself Sedwick’s has put together a series of Educational Seminars on October 28, the day BEFORE the auction at The DoubleTree Lake Buena Vista (Walt Disney World) in Orlando that would rival any numismatic convention.

Experts from Mexico, Spain, Panama, Venezuela and the USA will be giving talks about subjects ranging from the “Evolution of Mexican Coinage” and the “Mysteries of Colombian Cobs” to an overview of “Venezuelan Numismatics” and the “Mintage Statistics for the Lima Mint“. To have so many experts available in such an intimate and welcoming environment will be and added benefit to all those who attend. Below is the schedule of educational events….

This sale will go down in history as the “Hearts and Royals” auction. Never before have so many Hearts (14) and Royals (46) been offered at the same time. These are very special silver cob coins from Potosí, Bolivia—made in tiny numbers for presentation, not circulation. Many dates are represented by single-known specimens. Sophisticated cob buyers know that an opportunity like this is unique, with enough specimens to satisfy the casual trophy hunters as well. To be able to offer a total of 60 of these treasures is a privilege we will hold dear for years to come!

Printed catalogs have been mailed out and bidding has begun, with hundreds of bids already in place. If you have not done so already, please register to bid–don’t leave it for the last minute! Even if you already have an iCollector account, you still need to “Get Approved!” to bid for each auction.
