BONHAMS Memorabilia sale on June 29 drew gasps of amazement and a round of applause when the unique John Lennon gold coin struck for Alderney as part of the Great Britons series sold for a staggering £60,000 (pre-sale estimate £2,000). Issued in 2010, the coin originally issued in both cupro-nickel and sterling silver, with a “one-off” 22 carat gold coin struck and presented to Yoko Ono Lennon who kindly then gave it to the Alder Hey “Imagine” appeal—the children’s hospital in Liverpool of whom Yoko is an ardent patron.
