D-Weil am Rhein
Münzen & Medaillen GmbH of Weil am Rhein, Germany, will hold their 50th floor auction on 27th June 2023.
Amongst the ancient Greek coins, Sicily is particularly well represented with several outstanding silver coins and many bronze issues of excellent quality. There is a tetradrachmon of Katane in Sicily signed by the die cutter Euainetos, which depicts the goddess of victory, Nike, as she flies over to proffer a wreath to the driver of a quadriga. In the other hand Nike holds a tablet on which the die cutter’s signature, “EUAIN,” appears. The coin comes from an old Münzen & Medaillen AG Basel sale. Also from Katane is another tetradrachmon, boasting an exceptional provenance- it was part of the collections of Sir Arthur Evans and Robert Jameson, and also comes from an old auction of the Münzen & Medaillen AG, Basel.
The Roman coins are represented with a range of Republican coins, including several imperatorial issues, and a good selection of imperial coins, with a number of very fine gold issues.
The sale continues with coins of the Medieval and Modern periods. This includes on the one hand a collection of Bavarian coins containing numerous Goldgulden, ducats, double-ducats, Carolins, Max d’or and Taler, and on the other hand a special collection of coins of the Upper Rhine, Alsace, Rhineland-Palatinate, Speyer, Selz, Hagenau, Strasbourg and Lake Constance regions, including many Medieval pennies and rare small denominations.
Finally, there will be a sale of numismatic literature, including a complete set of all 29 volumes of the “Catalogue of Greek Coins in the British Museum”, all in the original edition.
The auction will take place on Tuesday 27th June 2023 in Weil am Rhein. In order to bid live over the internet, it is necessary to register online at least two days before the auction.
