UK sales of Coins & Medals double in the past 10 years

ATG have recently reported sales of Coins & Medals have double at auctions held in the UK over the past decade.

  

Next week’s issue of ATG will include an annual review of sale totals from the UK’s major sale rooms.

Fellows are due to hold their first Coins & Medals auction of 2015 on Monday at 11am.

The sale is made up of over 400 lots and features one of our largest selections of Gold Sovereigns and Half-Sovereigns, particularly those of the Victorian era.

The highlight of the sale is lot 404, a Baronet’s Badge in gold and enamel, engraved to the reverse ‘Worthington-Evans of Colchester 1916’. The baronet’s badge takes precedence over all Orders worn around the neck with the exception of the Order of Merit. Sir Worthington Laming Worthington-Evans, 1st Baronet GBE, PC, was a Conservative politician, serving under David Lloyd George’s coalition and Stanley Baldwin governments.
