NGC-certified Coins Featured in Sale Presented by New Frankfurt Auction House

Posted on 10/23/2019

Frankfurter Münzhandlung was started in 2019 by SINCONA executives.

In its November 8 offerings of ancient and German coins, the new auction house Frankfurter Münzhandlung Nachfolge GmbH is featuring an excellent selection of significant rarities certified by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®).

The auction house, named for one that started in 1874, was opened this year by executives of the Swiss coin auction house Sincona AG. Sincona emerged from the numismatic department of the Swiss banking giant UBS, which had bought Frankfurter Münzhandlung in 1988 and held its last auction in 1999.

This 1875-B Germany 20 Marks that is graded NGC MS 64★ PL is estimated to realize €40,000 (about $45,000 USD).

Perhaps chief among the rarities offered in Auction 153 in Frankfurt am Main is an 1875 Germany 20 Marks that is graded NGC MS 64★ PL and that is estimated to realize €40,000 (about $45,000 USD). The gold coin bears a portrait of Heinrich XXII (1846-1902), who was Prince Reuss of the small German principality of Greiz from 1859 until his death.

Another gold coin with a €40,000 estimate is an 1895 German New Guinea 20 Marks graded NGC MS 65+. Germany took control of the northeastern part of the island and several Pacific island groups in the 1880s and lost them in World War I.
