New record for British Coin

Posted on Thu, 27 November 2008 by Phil Mussell - General News, Coin News

Last night's sale by Ginza Coins of Tokyo saw a new record set for a British milled coin - with £360,000 being paid for a gold Gothic crown! The coin last sold in Tokyo back in the 90s and has trebled the price it made then.

The Ginza Coin Auctions sale was actually in two parts - the second being a sale of 100 choice rarities - 43 of which were British. Look out for the full report of the sale - including those other rarities in next month's COIN NEWS
