LONDON.- Mayfair-based Auctioneers Dix Noonan Webb, who specialise in coins, medals, banknotes and jewellery will be holding an auction of British and World Coins, and Historical Medals on Tuesday, April 12, 2022 at 10am. The 770-lot sale will feature coins and medals dating from the first millennium BC to the present day and from as far afield as Thailand and Korea.

Over 100 lots from the Michael Gietzelt Collection of Coins, tokens and medals of the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands will be offered. A notable example is a very rare and very fine copper pattern penny from the Isle of Man, dating from 1723. This penny was originally in H.A. Parsons Collection which sold in 1954 and is estimated at £4,000-5,000.

The sale will also include English Hammered coins from various properties. From the Early Anglo-Saxon Period is an extremely fine Gold Shilling or Thrymsa that dates from circa 645-70 and was found near Horsmonden (Kent) in around 1955. Decorated with two Emperors on one side and winged Victory above two figures on the other, it is estimated at £3,000-3,600.

Among the British milled coins are two interesting coins from private collections. A Proof crown from the reign of George IV (1820-1830) that dates from 1826 is expected to fetch £10,000-12,000, while an extremely rare Proof Sovereign from the reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901), dating from 1871 carries an estimate of £8,000-10,000.

Two World coins that were once in the D.L.F. Sealy Collection include from Korea, a very rare 5 Chon, dating from yr 3 of the reign of Yung Hi [1909] which is estimated at £10,000-12,000. While from Thailand: a rare and fragile 19 th century Pattern 2 Baht from the reign of Rama V (1868-1910). Struck in white metal, this extremely fine example is expected to fetch £6,000-8,000.
