1,200 NGC-graded World & Ancient Coins to be Offered at Heritage’s Central States Auction

Posted on 3/31/2020

The sale of world and ancient coins will be held April 24-27 in Dallas instead of Chicago.

More than 1,200 world and ancient coins graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®) will be offered April 24-27 as part of Heritage Auctions’ official Central States Numismatic Society (CSNS) Convention auction.

The CSNS canceled its 81st anniversary convention scheduled for Chicago because of the coronavirus. Heritage will still hold the associated auctions on the scheduled dates but at its headquarters in Dallas, Texas. Heritage also will present auctions of US coins, US paper money and world paper money during that time. (Bidding can also be done online at HA.com.)

This England 1644 Triple Unite graded NGC MS 62+ has an estimate of $80,000-$120,000.

One of the most impressive NGC-certified coins in the sale is an England 1644 Triple Unite graded NGC MS 62+ with a pre-sale estimate of $80,000-$120,000. It is the finest-known example of the handful graded by NGC.

The coin, the largest hammered gold coin ever produced in England, was issued by King Charles I during the 1642-49 English Civil War to promote the king’s claim to be able to unite the realm under “the Protestant religion, the laws of England, and the Liberty of Parliament.”

The most outstanding NGC Ancients-graded collectible in the auction is a gold medallion: a Constantine I the Great (AD 307-337) 9 Solidi graded NGC Ancients Choice VF, 5/5 Strike, 2/5 Surface with Fine Style. The 41.88-gram medallion, 47 mm (nearly 2 inches) in diameter, has an estimate of $100,000-$150,000. Such objects were struck as gifts for VIPs and are known as “money medallions” because they were true multiples of gold and silver coins and could be used in commerce.

Among the other especially notable coins to be offered in the sale are:
