CNG Triton XXVII Roman Silver Provincials

Al Kowsky

Recommended Posts

If anyone was thinking that the ancient coin market was getting soft, think againĀ šŸ˜. All areas of the market are alive & robust. My area of interest is Roman silver provincialĀ tetradrachms & I bid on 11 coins, only to getĀ steamrolledĀ on all my bidsĀ šŸ˜–. One factor that made winning anything difficult was the buyers premium ofĀ 22.5%. In my case an additionalĀ 8% NYS tax is added onto that. Last year the market was softer & I scored some rare coins at good prices. Never theĀ less, sitting through a Triton auction is always a treat. The coins pictured below have the winning bids added with theĀ 22.5%Ā buyers premium.

Al my friend/ no one could have said it better/ plus showed the evidence!

Sadly there is no end in sight to this trend. It used to be back in the 1800s/ only the aristocracy/ industrialists/ and more or less "rich people" could afford to dabble in numismatics. Back then the 1 percent really were the elite. Today we have a affluent middle class/ which is growing in leaps and bounds/ thus more people have money for fun stuff like coins. The supply is very limited to the growing demand/ esp. for classical high grade material. Thus Al's posted exs/ all beautifull/ top grade works of art/ sold for top dollar. Just a reality check/ ancients/ most world coinage is still very underpriced compared to US counterparts.
