(Long Beach, California) — More than two dozen of the top rare coin experts from mainland China and Hong Kong attended the Long Beach Coin, Currency, Stamp & Sports Collectible Expo (www.LongBeachExpo.com) for the first time, June 5 – 7, 2014.  The response was enthusiastically positive from the dealers, collectors and the public who brought their Chinese coins to the show for free appraisals, according to Long Beach Expo officials.

“The visit was a sign of the huge activity and soaring prices in the emerging Chinese coin market and emphasized the importance of having coins certified for authenticity and grade.  The opportunity for collectors and the public to have their Chinese coins appraised by experts led to lines of visitors during the daily ‘Meet The Expert’ appraisal sessions,” said Ms. Cassi East, President of the Long Beach Expo.

Mr. Don Willis, President of Professional Coin Grading Service (www.PCGS.com) stated: “Stories in Los Angeles area Chinese language news media about the visit prompted many local collectors and the public to bring their coins to the show for free appraisals from these respected dealers.  Some of the collectors learned their coins were counterfeits, and then realized why it is essential to buy certified coins.”

Mr. Willis continued: “Collectors in Asia now are appreciating what collectors in the United States have known for decades: PCGS certification provides peace of mind when you buy, protection for the coins while you own them and liquidity when you want to sell them.”

There were educational seminars during the show about the Chinese coin market and grading Chinese coins.

Mr. Keqin Sun, author of the Standard Catalog of Chinese Modern Circulating Coins and owner of Coin001.com, said that as the Chinese coin market matures and more numismatic research is published, “I believe that soon, China will surpass the U.S. coin market.”

In addition to Mr. Sun, other dealers from mainland China and Hong Kong who attended the June 2014 Long Beach Expo included: Ms. Zuo Jingua, General Manager, Chenxuan Auction, Beijing; and Mr. Chen Haomin, Chairman, Coin in Coin, Guangzhou; and Mr. Nirat Lertchitvikul, Director of Asian Operations, Stacks Bowers, Hong Kong.

The 12th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, Mr. John Mercanti, and 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame commemorative coins designer, Ms. Cassie McFarland, also attended the show each day to meet with collectors and dealers.

Heritage Auctions (www.HA.com), official auctioneer of the Long Beach Expo, conducted a rare coin auction that generated US$16.9 million in winning bids.  Heritage also displayed more than US$1 million of rare 19th and early 20th century Chinese gold and silver coins that will be in a future auction.

The next Long Beach Coin, Currency, Stamp & Collectible Expo will be conducted September 4 – 6, 2014.  For additional information, visit online at www.LongBeachExpo.com.

Künker Spring Sale: A Week Full of Surprises

March 24, 2014 in Ancient Coins, Antique Coins, Auctions, China Coins, Coins, Collecting, Gold, Gold Coins, History, Medals, News, Numismatica, Numismatics, Rare Coins

March 24, 2014 By Ursula Kampmann (http://news.coinupdate.com/)

140.000 euros for a Chinese dollar from 1896, 110.000 euros for a gold coin from Czechoslovakia from 1938 – the spring sale of Künker was full of surprises! Less surprising was: the pre-sale estimate of 5.7 million euros was easily surpassed by the hammer price amounting to 8.75 million euros.

The spring auction of Künker / Osnabrück took five days. The four weighty catalogs contained many interesting special collections. Hence, several hundreds of dealers and collectors came to the Hotel Steigenberger Remarque to witness the 6,129 lots on offer changing hands.

Auction sale 245 – Gold coins / German Empire coins since 1871 / Russian coins

The most remarkable result of day one was obtained by a 5 ducat piece from Czechoslovakia from 1938 of which just 56 specimens were produced. Its obverse shows the national coat of arms as well as a lime tree branch, on the reverse Saint Wenceslas with the lettering Hedej Zahynouti Nam i Budoucim (Do not let us or our descendants perish). Its pre-sale estimate had been 10,000 euros, and it can be found for 30,000 euros in the latest World Coin Catalog written by Schön. That the two prices are totally out of date is evidenced by the hammer price: 110,000 euros!

September 20, 2013 in China Coins, Coins, Gold, Gold Coins, News, Silver, Silver Coins, World Coins

People in Beijing can now buy gold or silver coins at ATMs after the Beijing-based Hua Xia Bank introduced five of the machines earlier this month, according to Hong Kong’s We Wei Po.

The bank installed the five machines at its branches across the city in Xidan, Fangzhuang, Zhongguancun, Dongdan and on Qingnian Road.

The ATMs look like ordinary teller machines but have an additional compartment to dispense the gold and silver coins. The machines currently offer panda souvenir gold or silver coins and Year of the Snake silver coin and plate sets.

A single 1-oz panda silver coin priced at 268 yuan (US$40) is the cheapest item available, while the panda gold coin set is the most expensive at 23,800 yuan (US$3,800).

Guarding Dh70k coin collection

August 18, 2013 in Antique Coins, Bank Notes, China Coins, Coins, Collecting, Numismatica, Numismatics, Paper Money, Rare Coins, Silver, Silver Coins, World Coins

Nivriti Butalia / 17 August 2013 (http://www.khaleejtimes.com)

In the classifieds section of a newspaper, under ‘General Items’, there is a three line brief that reads: “Coins & Currency notes, from different countries, personal collection, for sale. Contact 055-2795480”.

When Khaleej Times dialled the number and reached a man called Roshan Syed he was offering Friday morning prayers at the mosque, but promised to ring back – which he did, assuming the call was a buyer for his coins.

Syed, 27, is a security guard with Al Jaber Coins at HUDCO in Abu Dhabi. The name of his employer is something of a coincidence to him, as Syed has been collecting coins for twenty years.

Back when he was in the 4th grade, in Kottayam, India, he “went to buy a toffee, and the shopkeeper had to return 25 paisa but instead he returned an American dime”.  This is how his interest in numismatics – the rather technical term for coin-collection — began.
