NGC-certified Gold Rarities Offered in Berlin Auction

Posted on 1/9/2020

European coins from the Holy Roman Empire and the German states are among many historically fascinating coins in an upcoming sale presented by Künker Münzauktionen and Goldhandel.

Many historically and numismatically fascinating European coins certified by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®) are being offered in an upcoming Berlin auction presented by Künker Münzauktionen and Goldhandel on January 30, 2020, just before the start of the World Money Fair.

A Hungary 1695KV (Transylvania) 10 Ducats graded NGC MS 62 has an estimate of 80,000 € (about $89,000 USD). This gold coin, minted for Transylvania, features Leopold I, the Holy Roman Emperor from 1654 until 1705. Leopold successfully pushed back the Ottoman Empire from interfering in Transylvania during his reign, which was the longest of any Habsburg emperor.

Leopold I’s long reign means that he is depicted on many coins from the Holy Roman Empire. Portrayals on coinage that exaggerated his lower jaw even gave him his nickname, “the Hogmouth.” Another example in this sale, from much earlier in his reign, is an Austria 1659 5 Ducats graded NGC MS 61 that has an estimate of 15,000 € (about $16,600 USD).
