The sale begins with over 130 lots of Ancient coins comprising a wide variety of types and designs that are sure to entice collectors. The regions represented include: Celtic, Sicilian, Macedon, Thrace, Athens, Ionia, Syria, Egypt, Rome and the Byzantine Empire. One highlight from this section is a lovely Persian gold Daric, created by the massive Persian Empire for trade with the Greeks.

The World Currency section contains over 225 lots, with a diverse offering that will appeal to dealers and collectors alike. One special piece is a DC-21c 5 Dollar note from Canada. No seal, series B. These 1912 “Train Notes” are among the most sought after large size Canadian designs. Stunning blue color is noted on both face and back and all the intricate detail is readily available. Original paper quality is confirmed by the “EPQ,” designation by Paper Money Guaranty (PMG) and the Gem grade is cemented by the excellent centering and margins.

The World Coins portion offers over 1,000 lots. It features prominent sections of France, Germany, Great Britain and all manner of Spanish Colonial coinage, with a large Mexican section. One standout coin is the Shah Jahan Mohur dated AH 1038 Year 2 (ca. 1628/9). The period of Jahan’s reign is considered the golden age of Mughal architecture, and he bequeathed to the world the famed Taj Mahal. Constructed over a two-decade period to honor his late wife, the monument is now considered one of the wonders of the modern world.
