MANY RECORDS – AND NEW PRICE LEVELS! TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SELL!
We would like to thank all our customers for another fantastic auction day! The coin market is STRONG! The prices at this weekend’s auction were very good. Several coins, medals, tokens and banknotes were sold at unprecedented levels. The bidding was at times lengthy; we as auctioneers could not understand at the time of cataloging what lifts certain categories would make that day. One such example is medals, which finally seem to be enjoying a renaissance. For the fall auction, we have a much larger number of top coins already submitted – we are now aiming for the September auction. We welcome other sellers to take advantage of the good economy and the good company the fall offers. Contact Dan Carlberg, firstname.lastname@example.org, to discuss the conditions for your particular objects.
For many of us, our annual spring and autumn auctions are the highlights of the year! For many years we have held these at the centrally located Sheraton Hotel in Stockholm.
In response to the growing interest in numismatics, we are expanding our presence on the Internet. We now aim to hold 6-8 auctions per year, some of which will be thematic special auctions.
COIN AND ANTIQUE FAIRS
Myntauktioner i Sverige are the collectors’ business and are therefore present as exhibitors and visitors at most fairs in Sweden, but also many abroad.
Coin theft in Linköping
On January 13, the Linköping City Library was broken into. The target of the thief or thieves was part of the library’s coin collection, which was on display there. Both the door of the library and the display were alarmed, but by the time the police arrived at the crime scene, the offender(s) had already disappeared. The library has since many year ago a large and beautiful coin collection, which it has tried to show to the public in several displays. The remaining part of the exhibition was taken down immediately after the theft. A total of 77 coins, mainly antique and foreign, were stolen, with an estimated value of around half a million SEK.
