In the first three weeks of 2017, auctions of U.S. and World coins and currency have produced more than $70M in sales, reports Heritage Auctions.
If auction activity at the first two national coin shows of 2014 (combined total sales of $105 million reported by Heritage Auctions) are any indicator of things to come for the coin market this year, it's going to be an exciting year indeed.
A rare 17th century banknote is one of 1,000 lots slated for sale at a three-day auction hosted by Archives International Auctions on Jan. 26, in Hong Kong.
Beginning in July, world coin rarities from around the world are offered in weekly Internet auctions by Heritage. Each lot starts at $1 with no reserves.
