A major auction of Australian sovereigns was held by St James's Auctions in London in early March - something to the surprise of a few people in the trade here.

Not only did the auction include at least 3 coins that would headline any Australian numismatic auction of note, it included...

Roxbury’s auction #90 was not only the first numismatic sale held in Australia in 2014, it was the first to be held after the former customers of the Rare Coin Company were able to collect their portfolios.

If you’re not already aware, the release of that inventory is something of a big deal - prior to entering into voluntary receivership in...

When the 2014 editions of both of Australia’s coin and note price guides were put out in late November last year, we sold more copies of both books in December than we have in entire years previously - I don’t think it’s too far a stretch to say that interest in coin values is stronger now than it ever has been.

With a declared turnover of $2.34 million over 4 days, Noble 104 was without doubt a decent sized event.

As a dealer, I never know what is going to be included in these sales - Noble’s handle so much of such a wide range of numismatic material that I need to be prepared for pre-decimal notes, gold coins, foreign notes or even ancient coins....

IAG auctions are notable affairs usually for the rare and exclusive material they contain, and this sale wasn’t an exception. It stands out for a couple of other reasons as well - it was yet a further example of the ready use of online bidding technology in the Australian numismatic world, and it was also the first auction held in Australia endorsed by ANDA.

The first 337 lots were...

International Auction Galleries are well known for their short and sharp sales of generally top quality material - this auction is definitely no different in terms of the material it includes.

This weekend sees the Sterling & Currency team in Melbourne for the first-ever ANDA International Coin and Banknote Show, to be held over three days in Etihad Stadium in Melbourne.

This is shaping up to be an exciting event - there are a number of international dealers and mints that don’t normally make the journey to Australia who will be in attendance, and I’m also aware that...

While recent events in the Australian numismatic market may have thrown some market observers into disarray, the results achieved by our two most recent auctions indicate pretty clearly that there are plenty of collectors that are quite content to keep on keeping on when others are falling down around them.

Noble Numismatics conducted their 103rd auction in Melbourne in the second week...
