In Auction 119, Solidus presents 424 attractive lots with some rarities, e.g. an extremely rare medieval bracteate from Ulm and excellently preserved gold coins of the 18th century including pieces of the Habsburg dynasty and an extremely rare Taler of Joseph II. At the end of the auction, interesting groups of coins with very moderate estimates are offered.

The auction will be held as a live auction on the auction platform AUEX on Tuesday, 23 May, 2023 from 4:00 p.m. CEST. Pre-bids can already be submitted.

Lot 1020: Sicily. Tetradrachma. Ca. 477 - 466 BC. Estimate: 1,900 EUR.

Lot 1020: Sicily. Tetradrachma. Ca. 477 – 466 BC. Estimate: 1,900 EUR.

The auction begins with Celtic coins, mostly from Eastern Celtic tribes, and imitations of ancient coins by cultures at the periphery of the Ancient World. A selection of Greek coins follows, from Magna Graecia and the Greek motherland to the Greek colonies in the Black Sea region and Asia Minor and the Hellenistic kingdoms. A tetradrachm from Leontinoi (lot 1020) is particularly beautiful. Attractive and interesting is an Arabic imitation of an Attic tetradrachm in an idiosyncratic style (lot 1119).

Selected provincial Roman coins follow, including extremely rare coinages of Gallienus from Prusa on Olympus (lot 1128), of Sabina from Attaia in Mysia (lot 1129) and a very rare tetradrachm of Diadumenianus from Arados (lot 1149). This is followed by some denarii of the Roman Republic (lots 1138 – 1217) and coinage of the Roman imperial period, including an almost uncirculated, certified siliqua of Constantius II (1196). Some Byzantine coins, among them two beautiful miliaresia, conclude the offers on antiquity.

From the Middle Ages there are interesting Bavarian pennies of the late Middle Ages (lots 1205 – 1214), furthermore a series of late medieval coinages of the principalities of Moldavia and Wallachia (lots 1216 – 1242). An extremely rare royal bracteate from Ulm, probably the sixth known example (lot 1214), deserves special mention.

Lot 1214: Ulm – royal mint. Bracteate, 1237 – 1268. Estimate: 1,000 EUR.

Lot 1214: Ulm – royal mint. Bracteate, 1237 – 1268. Estimate: 1,000 EUR.

Two German gold coins deserve attention: an almost mint state ducat of the Teutonic Order of Archduke Maximilian (lot 1252) and an almost extremely fine ducat from Nuremberg from the time of the Swedish occupation under Gustav Adolph in 1632 (lot 1255).

Lot 1261: Habsburg dynasty. Joseph II. 2 Ducats 1773 E, Karlsburg. Estimate: 1,600 EUR.

Lot 1266: Parma – Duchy. Ferdinando I. Borbone. 4 Doppie 1787. Estimate: 2,800 EUR.
