      Noble Numismatics Sale 123

      Premier's Room, Hotel InterContinental

      Update from Noble Numismatics: 11:32am AEDT, Tuesday 25 March

      These are unprecedented times and it is crucial that we all act with the best interests to protect the health of our families, colleagues and communities.

      Therefore, in accordance with Federal Government guidelines on gatherings, we advise that our auction is now online only.

      We continue to closely monitor the rapidly evolving situation and will advise all clients should any further changes be necessary.

      As a precautionary note, we anticipate that the volume of online bids will lengthen session duration.

      All those who intend to bid live must pre-register at Invaluable.com. Pre-sale bidding is unaffected and may be completed via www.noble.com.au or by submitting an absentee bid form.

      Our opinion of the market remains very positive and this is supported by strong results in recent overseas auctions, including record prices at a major auction last week.

      We thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time and look forward to your participation at the auction. Finally, we wish to express our support to all our colleagues and families in the wider numismatic community who have been affected by this crisis.

      Jim Noble
      Managing Director
