CNG Triton XXIV Auction
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.

Lot 54, Brutus, Aureus
Military mint traveling with Brutus
Sear says of the coin “We now reach the final and unquestionably the most remarkable phase of Brutus’ coinage. On this beautiful aureus his portrait is accompanied by that of his renowned ancestor Lucius Junius Brutus, first consul of the Republic”
Exceedingly rare, one of nine known, and perhaps one of only three in private hands.
Estimate: $150,000 (£112,300)
Hammer: $280,000 (£205,100)
The live online sale for Session Four begins 20 January 2021 at 2pm ET, (7pm GMT)
