      The Melbourne Numismatic Society's first meeting for 2018 will be held on Thursday 8th February. The topic for discussion will be “A new numismatic item or something old”. I wonder who will bring the newest, a coin , medal or note from 2018? Or who will bring the oldest such as a coin of King Caratacus like that shown here. As usual please feel free to bring along any new acquisitions to tell us about and enjoy a coffee, biscuit and chat at the end of the meeting.

      Despite the silly song about the ladies of his court there really was a King Caratacus. He ruled the British Celtic tribe called the Catavellauni during the first half of the first century AD. This coin, auctioned by Downies in 2015, is a silver unit with a head of Hercules and the letters CARA on the obverse. The reverse shows an eagle standing on a snake.

      With pleasure we present our March 2018 auction featuring 719 lots totalling $377,640.

      There is something for everyone, with strength in gold coins, Islamic coins, British and European historic medals, Swiss shooting medals and thalers, higher grade British coins from Elizabeth I to Victoria, New Zealand decimal banknotes, tokens, errors and predecimal coins.

      We introduce live online bidding, through our website and Auction Mobility, a Boston company. International bidders should note that grading accords with standards for each market, being more conservative than US grading companies for most world coins.

      We extend the catalogue with some interesting gold and other jewellery, watches and antiques and numismatic books.

      Particularly exciting opportunities include:

      • The unique 1895 New Zealand 5-pounds pink postal note in EF with an estimate of $17,500, one of just four known, issued to be a banknote.
      • The famous 1772/3 Resolution & Adventure medal in platina, estimated at $5000, and available to all bidders with its northern hemisphere provenance, held by one family for a century.
      • British silver coins ranging from hammered to Crowns from 1662 including George III, George IV, 1845, 1847 Gothic, Victoria Jubilee and Old Head and Edward VII, in higher grades.
      • Sovereigns from 1817 onwards including near complete dates from 1817 to 1825 with the rarely seen 1823 and 1825. GB 1887 2 Pounds in EF and AU extend the sovereign range.
      • 69 hammered Islamic coin lots, including 41 gold, from AH 60 (AD 680) onwards. These are great value, mostly in the $200 to $600 range, based on both bullion and rarity. Further milled Islamic coins, including Ottoman, Egyptian, Saudi Arabian & Moroccan are in the World sections.
      • More than 200 gold coins and medals in total.
      • Military medals number 26 lots.
      • 64 banknote lots include 6 NZ trading banknotes, 3 Lefeaux notes from a relative of Lefeaux’s, Reserve Bank decimal issues, with first and scarcer last prefixes, star notes and the Hardie $1 to $100 same number set and World accumulations.
      • A Waitangi proof set and single Crown.
      • Fully UNC NZ early predecimals and NZ error coins including three great brockages, wrong planchets, mules and a rare undated 10 cent 2011 proof set.
      • New Zealand and Australia tokens include many higher grade, scarcer examples with 4 different Lipman Levy types, AS Wilson, Forsaith, Morris Marks, Gourlay and Anderson.
      • The NZ 1879 pattern penny in AU, estimated at $5500.
      • World coins range over affordable accumulations to Canadian, Chinese & Hawaii $1s, a Russian 1842 platinum 3 roubles, Tongan 1967 Palladium set and a small ancient selection.

      The Royal Australian Mint is hosting a public talk on Wednesday 8 August and members of the NAV are invited. In Minting Classic Coins and Australia’s First Coins, Dr Rick Williams will discuss the impressions stamped on coins from Southern Italy in the 6th and 5th centuries BC and how their minting relates to Australia’s first coins - the holey dollar and dumps made in New South Wales in 1813. How do they compare? Can we draw links between the methods used to make them?
       
      When: Wednesday 8 August 2018 at 10.30am to 11.15am

      This weekend event is now in its 23nd year and has grown into a major event in Gippsland with a huge range of antiques and collectables on display and for sale. There will be something for everyone including historical displays, collections to view and plenty of bargains to be purchased, with over 50 local and interstate dealers in attendance. Free antique appraisals will be available on both days, so if you have something old and interesting bring it a long for Ross Roycroft to appraise for you. This Fair is a great opportunity for collectors to get together and socialise over the whole weekend or just drop in for an hour or so to look at items of interest. Full catering will be available. The Fair is organised by the Gippsland Antique Bottles and Collectables Club Inc.
