    in spotting die variations in a Charles I Triple Unite Once the venue has been suitably found booked and secured the real hard work begins Preparations for a show such as the New York International Coin Convention start more than a year in advance at this year s show for example standholders were encouraged to book their place ready for 2017 due to demand The Starlight Lounge on the 18 th Floor of the Waldorf Astoria in New York certainly fitted the bill as far as prestige was concerned but it wasn t just a matter of turn up and go Before the show the Starlight Lounge the day before the standholders arrive The room is prepared well in advance by a skilled team ensuring that space is maximised for both standholders and attendees The stands are often prepared the night before the show opens to the public and readied the next morning It is a matter of course that there is a tangible sense of excitement throughout the room as the queues start to build up outside Get Set Ready GO When the doors do open the work behind the scenes continues often unseen by those browsing buying or selling With such a large amount of people not to mention the value of the coins and other numismatic material on display safety is paramount and a full team of security is always on duty For those who attend the show generally finishes around five six pm Then routes are planned towards nearby bars and restaurants to further discuss collections before rescuing spouses from their shopping expeditions and arguing about who has spent the most money For the standholders and the behind the scenes team it doesn t quite end there The displays are carefully dismantled and items secured ready for the next day before we make our way to join those who remain in the bars and restaurants as well as those who have already lost the aforementioned arguments to talk about the one thing we all have in common On the final day of the show as the last of the attendees slowly filter through the exit the hard work continues At this stage the room so meticulously kempt by the expert team throughout the show starts to look a little different as the standholders begin to disassemble the stalls After the show as the last of the attendees leave the dismantling process begins Cash is reconciled coins medals banknotes and more is carefully catalogued stored and readied for the journey home Items are packed into crates for transatlantic flights strongboxes are securely fastened and the room buzzes with the unmistakable sound of people removing tablecloths and checking under tables to ensure that nothing or any one is left behind When the doors finally close we make our way to the awaiting planes trains and automobiles Tired but happy that we ve reignited old acquaintances and made some new friends on the way secure in the knowledge that

  • Baldwin's - Buy and Sell Rare Coins - The Baldwin's Blog - The 'Buy-One-Get-One-Free' Auction
    of instances where the admiralty sold ships by an inch of a candle The process today is fairly straightforward even with the advent of the internet bid The auctioneer collects bids in increments until the highest price offered is reached If an item generates no interest or the price offered does not hit the reserve the item is passed or unsold What never happens is that the auctioneer simply gives away an item for free without asking for any bids Or does it The extremely rare Gold Medal 50 Ducats commemorating the Opening of the Naval Dockyard in Kronstadt from 1752 that sold for 327 600 inc BP at The New York Sale That is precisely what happened on 7 th January 2016 at the Waldorf Astoria in New York the iconic venue for the annual New York Sale The bidding for lot 2122 the rare gold Medal 50 Ducats displaying Elizabeth r and the Opening of the Naval Dockyard in Kronstadt from 1752 was as you might expect for such a showcase item a very competitive affair The estimate for the medal was 200 000 and rather than waiting for a candle to burn down the more modern method of accepting higher and higher bids was employed by the auctioneer until the final bid of 327 600 including Buyer s Premium eliminated all under bidders and the hammer finally fell What happened next was unprecedented in an auction room candle or no as the auctioneer so pleased with the price realised for the gold medal decided on the spot to give away the next lot free to the buyer This prompted the unusual and we believe unique appearance of the word gratis to appear on a Prices Realised sheet For certain this was a complete first in our auction

  • Baldwin's - Buy and Sell Rare Coins - The Baldwin's Blog - A Fleet of Spanish Treasure
    In fact the only time that the fleet was captured was at Matanzas Bay Cuba by the Dutch Admiral Piet Heyn The story of that capture plays out like the plot of a Hollywood movie and was remarkable for many reasons not least of which was the fact that Admiral Heyn managed to take the fleet without the loss of a single life Lot 1004 Netherlands Admiral Piet Heyn 1578 1629 Silver Medal depicting the capture of the Spanish Fleet at Matanzas Bay Cuba 1628 58 41g 58 87mm unsigned Good very fine and very rare Guide Price 20 000 The fleet was due to sail to the colonies in two separate flotillas one departing from Venezuela and one from Mexico one guesses that their security team was more adept than their marketing team Whilst the flotilla moored in Venezuela was awaiting departure they were already being eyed by the Dutch A Dutch cabin boy having drunk more than his fill in the bars of Blanquilla became lost in the port on his way back to his ship Captured by the Spanish he was coerced into giving up the Dutch plans The Spanish flotilla in Venezuela was therefore forewarned but there was no time to get word to their comrades in Mexico The Dutch fleet led by Admiral Heyn pursued the remaining Spanish ships and eventually forced them into the Bay of Matanzas where finding themselves utterly outnumbered without their colleagues languishing in Venezuela had no choice but to surrender On 9 th September 1628 they did so with only minimal shots fired none of which actually hit their target Admiral Heyn captured 11 509 524 Guilders of gold silver and expensive trade goods a booty that would go on to fund the Dutch navy for the next 8 years

  • Baldwin's - Buy and Sell Rare Coins - The Baldwin's Blog - Bigger is Better
    your view of semantics as simply one that is taking those inexorable steps towards completion One that is always growing Perhaps steadily perhaps slowly but definitely expanding a collection that is bigger than it was last year We think of our collections in terms of overall size or perhaps in the rising value that dwells within but rarely in the size of the actual items within it Perhaps we should In the world of the Mughal Empire they certainly thought that bigger was better These gigantic coins are unrivalled in terms of majesty and size The coin a silver 10 rupees in our New York auction is such an example one of only 2 known examples Lot 1101 Mughal Nawabs of Surat Shah Alam II AH 1173 1221 1759 1806 AD Silver 10 rupees Hijiri AH 1185 Year 6 115 6g 45mm Incredibly rare and one of only two known specimens Guide Price 300 000 Shah Alam II inherited a crumbling Empire with frequent attacks from the Emir of Afghanistan who made constant gains throughout Alam II s reign Indeed a popular joke at the time was that Alam II s Empire reached from Delhi to Palam With Palam being a suburb of Delhi The origins of this coin are well documented it was minted at Surat a large and popular port city on the banks of the River Tapti but its purpose is somewhat less known Perhaps it was meant as a last hurrah of a dwindling Empire Perhaps it was as many commentators have noted simply a way of storing bullion such as a gold or silver bar of today Perhaps it was indeed designed to be a form of currency Perhaps it is just the last reminder of that which was once magnificent Or perhaps it was
