Treasure and World Coin Auction #9 is perhaps Sedwick's most well-balanced world coin auction so far, with interesting offerings from all the regions of the world, as well as significant sections of ancient, medals and tokens, and even paper money. Once again there is something for everyone.
SedwickAuction's expansion into world coins has given them the opportunity to make a very special presentation: The Dr. Frank Sedwick Collection of Colombian Republic Gold Coins. Dr. Sedwick (father of Daniel Frank Sedwick) wrote the first definitive book on the complex Colombian Republic gold series (The Gold Coinage of Gran Colombia ) as an outgrowth of two decades of collecting the coins. Along the way he gathered several of the most important coins in the series--some of which are appearing at auction here for the first time ever--like the following:
· Popayán 8 escudos 1838UR, XF-45, unique, estimated at $15,000 (lot 256).
· Bogotá 20 pesos 1859, AU-50, famous single-year, largest coin of the Confederación Granadina and one of about six known, estimated at $7500 (lot 331).
· Medellín 5 pesos 1863-M, MS-62, estimated at $10,000 (lot 348).
· Full set of Medellín 2-5-10 pesos 1885/74 and 1886/74, sold in individual lots but the only known set in existence, total estimate of $20,000 (lots 347, 350 and 367).
There has never been an offering of Colombian Republic gold coins like this before, and we have already been told this sale will be THE reference for the future.
In addition to the rarities, Dr. Sedwick's collection features dozens of coins that are the finest known graded by NGC, and each coin in the collection has been encapsulated by NGC with the pedigree stated inside the slab.
But don't overlook all the other important "treasure" items in this sale, including several "Hearts" and "Royals," a Cuzco 1 escudo cob 1698, a Brazilian 12800 reis (dobra) 1730-M, a Chilean 2 escudos 1758, and a Cuban proof peso 1915. There are also significant selections of US gold coins from the "Fort Capron treasure" of 1857, several large silver bars and emeralds and over 230 coins from the Atocha (1622), over 130 1715-Fleet cobs from the State of Florida collection (Bamberg division), a collection of more than 40 dated Mexican cob 8 reales, and dozens of top-quality Lima cob 2 reales. Rounding out the auction are significant offerings of general world coins (including ancients), artifacts (including fossils), documents and books (both antiquarian and modern).
