24 October 2018
The Warwick and Warwick coins auction on 17 October featured over 530 lots, beginning with a selection of English coins.
Highlights of the sale included:
- A Charles I Oxford Mint 1642 shilling realised £480.
- In the milled English coins section a 1692 over inverted 2 crown sold for £750.
- A 1716 guinea achieved £1,050.
An unusual 1981 20p Royal Mint Trial Experimental Coin sold for a very respectable £276.
In the British Gold Coins section an 1817 sovereign sold for £1,200.
In the British modern coins section there were several error coins. Arguably the highlight was this 1983 £1 to ½p ‘The Great British 1983 Coin Collection’ uncirculated year set which included the 2p ‘New Pence’ mule error which sold for £930.
In the medallic and commemorative section a 1772 Resolution and Adventure 42mm brass medal by John Westwood achieved £2,100.
The next Warwick and Warwick coin auction will be held on Wednesday 12 December 2018.
