A.H. Baldwin’s Coin Auction 109 Achieves Record Prices

London, March 9, 2023 – A.H. Baldwin is proud to announce that its recent coin auction  held on the 9th March 2023 achieved record prices for several of the lots offered. An expansive selection of coins were on offer across all provinces, many rare types, others in exceptional condition attracting all levels of collectors.

The highlight of the auction was Lot 185 – a Charles II Hammered Unite encapsulated by NGC as Mint State 61 (MS61), hammered for an impressive £26,000. This coin was a high grade example with much eye appeal contributing to the gargantuan result.

A rare silver stater from Olympia, with an excellent pedigree, realised £3,200 and gold aureus of the Roman Emperor Nero, featuring the enormous Colossus of Nero, sold for £5,000.

As always the Gothic Crowns proved very popular and is still very much in demand. Lot 282, a plain edge example encapsulated by NGC as Pure Silver PR62 Cameo, hammered for a staggering £33,000.

Another standout lot was Lot 176 – a Charles I Worcester Halfcrown in good extremely fine condition, which sold for £11,000. The coin is a testament to the craftsmanship of the era and its historical significance contributed to its value. It can be added that these types tend to come weakly struck without much overall clarity, our example in this sense was rare in its preservation and overall grade, as well as being rare in its denomination.

The auction also saw a World record being broken for a Chinese, Fukien, 10 Cents, with the finest of its type graded MS 66 selling for an impressive £4,800 in Lot 382.

In the rest of the world section, Lot 386 – the China, Sun Yat-Sen, Junk Dollar 1933 sold for £4,500, while Lot 395 – the German East Africa, Wilhelm II, gold 15 Rupien sold for £2,800. Lot 401, which featured an India, EIC, Victoria, gold 10 Rupee graded MS 61 sold for an impressive £8,500.

Baldwin. “These prices reflect not only the exceptional quality of the coins but also the strong demand for rare and valuable collectibles in today’s market.”
