CNG – Triton XXIV

CNG Triton XXIV Auction

CNG’s Triton XXIV coin auction closed on 20 January. You can view the full auction catalogue and bid here

Below are my picks from the auction, with their estimate. The auction hammer prices and estimates were in dollars. I have provided the sterling equivalent, using the exchange rate at 15 December 2020. In addition to the hammer price, there is a Buyer’s Premium of 20% for bids placed on the website and 22.5% for all others.

The auction is in four sessions. I have chosen lots from Session One, which are mainly Roman coins, and Session Four, which are British Coins.
