Cgb.fr will present more than 500 lots at its new “e-Monnaies” live auction – December 15, 2015 –, from Ancient to Royal and Modern French coins, including World coins.
Among the approximately 100 Ancient coins offered for sale, you will certainly notice a beautiful Lysimachus tetradrachm, a Philipus III Arrhidaeus gold stater, as well as a large selection of Roman coins, among which an exceptional Aurelian aurelianus.
This live auction will above all celebrate the tercentenary of the death of Louis XIV, the Sun King (1638-1715), and feature an exceptional and carefully selected coin series of this monarch : an extremely rare “lis d'or”, an écu de Flandre called “au buste âgé” 1686 LL and the much sought-after “demi-louis d'or à la mèche longue”, 1648 A, etc.
Among French Modern coins presented at this Cgb.fr live auction, you’ll find a series of pattern coins, among which the silver 20 Francs Turin 1939 and the silver 10 Francs Turin 1948. A bronze and aluminium 10-cents Lindauer “petit module” is also offered for sale (194.). Napoleon I will also be much emphasized with a full series of coins, among which 2 Francs coins from 1807 A (Tête de Nègre), and a 5 Francs An 12 G Premier Consul that Cgb.fr is offering for sale for the second time only.
You will also be offered other exceptional French coins, such as a 5 Francs écu 1819 I, the only specimen ever listed – that George Sobin could never see - and beautiful items from the DK Collection: a demi-franc An 12 T Premier Consul graded AU 58 and a 2 Francs Cent-Jours 1815 A graded SUP 60. A rare Gold 40 Francs transitory type 1807 M, 4.940 copies and a box of two tin pattern coins - a 5 Francs and a 100 Francs Louis-Philippe dated 1831, also from the DK collection – will also be offered for sale.
The selection of this live auction will end up with a wide range of World coins which will take you to Germany and Austria with a nice sample of thalers, but also to Italy, with two superb Charles V gold ducats for Naples, and to Russia, Switzerland and Spain and Portugal (with a Peça, or 6400 coin “Réis de Maria II of Portugal”, offered for sale for the first time at Cgb.fr). A Edward III. Noble and a 50 Stuivers Louis-Napoléon of Holland, 1807, will mark the culmination of this part of the live auction dedicated to World coins.
