A single-owner collection of coins sold for an impressive total sum of £60,780 at Staffordshire auction house Cuttlestones last Friday. The standalone sale, which handled the contents of a collection amassed over some 20 years by the vendor, was the Staffordshire auction house’s first completely online sale, in response to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.
Split into some 149 lots, highlights included Lot 143, a Royal Mint 2002 UK Golden Jubilee Gold Proof 13 coin set, which saw the hammer fall at £5,500; and Lot 109 – a Royal Mint 1997 UK ‘Golden Wedding Anniversary of Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Phillip’ gold proof crown which achieved £1,700 selling to a collector as opposed to a bullion dealer.
Whilst all of Cuttlestones’ sales now feature live, online bidding this was the first to take place solely online via easyliveauction.com and thesaleroom.com. The auction attracted interest from far and wide, with bidders from as far afield as the US registered. Lots sold to a good cross-section of this International audience and have now been dispatched to new their new owners.
MD and Head auctioneer, Ben Gamble, says:
“We’re delighted with the response to our first fully online auction, and have a very happy vendor. The bidders were out in force for this exceptional collection, and we are now looking forward to rolling out a regular schedule of live online sales until Government advice tells us that it is safe to welcome bidders back into the saleroom.”
