I strongly believe that it’s...

If you’ve had an interest in Australian gold coins for any period of time, you’ll be aware that a major collection of gold sovereigns hit the market in London earlier this year - Part One of The Bentley Collection.

Part Two (of three parts) of The Bentley Collection will be auctioned by Baldwin’s of London later this month - September 27th. Baldwin’s quite correctly describes it as...

You may or may not be aware of it, but there was a landmark event in Australian numismatics in late June 2012 - it was the first major online auction of a comprehensive collection of PCGS-graded Commonwealth coins in superb quality.

In Noble Numismatics Sale 96 Sydneysiders have just had their first numismatic auction of the year, and judging by the results there the market seems to still be tracking as it has since the start of 2011. Which ain't necessarily a bad thing!

It's been two weeks since the ANDA trade show for 2009 was held at the Burswood Convention Centre, and the dust has now settled at the Sterling & Currency offices.
