NGC-Certified World Coins Excel in Poland
Posted on 10/23/2020
Over 200 ancient and world coins certified by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation® (NGC®) were sold in Antykwariat Numizmatyczny Michal Niemczyk’s Premium Auction 26 sale on October 17, 2020 in Poland. Many realized prices well beyond their starting prices.
One of the top lots was a Poland 1611 5 Ducats graded NGC MS 62 that realized 270,000 PLN (about $70,000 USD), significantly more than its starting price of 170,000 PLN (about $44,000 USD). These coins are particularly sought-after for their bold design featuring the bust of Sigismund III Vasa, King of Poland from 1587 to 1632. This impeccable example has retained its striking detail and precise lines.
