The weekly iAuctions here at Stack’s Bowers Galleries are a great source for collectible coins within a reasonable budget. Every month (closing on the first Sunday of the month) these iAuctions will contain World and/or Ancient coins, with the inclusion of some very notable highlights such as this piece, a historically important coin involved with the construction of the Suez Canal. Located in Egypt, the Suez Canal allows naval vessels and merchant ships to easily cross between the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea.

This week’s iAuctions coin of the week is an example of the perennially popular 1937-D 3-Legged Buffalo nickel in NGC MS-61. This variety, known even outside of numismatic circles, was created when an employee named Mr. Young at the Denver Mint effaced the reverse die with an emery board in an effort to remove clash marks.

The Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio August Hong Kong Showcase Auction is rapidly acquiring a variety of coins and paper currency for what promises to be an excellent auction. Our featured coin for this week offers both scarcity and a high grade. This coin bears the effigy of an influential leader from China’s early Republican period, Yuan Shih-Kai. Like most historical figures Yuan Shih-Kai’s legacy is complex and fraught with negative repercussions.

With last weekend’s celebration of the Fourth of July holiday we look at one of the most patriotic issues of notes in American history. Before the first federal issues of American currency were produced, the colonies printed their own circulating paper currency. The Massachusetts Bay Colony issued a series of notes in 1775 and 1776 printed by famous American patriot Paul Revere.

The first coins issued in what is now the Commonwealth of Australia were issued out of necessity, using the internationally useful Spanish colonial silver 8 reales as host. The centers of the eight reales were punched out, and around the hole, were inscribed NEW SOUTH WALES 1813 on the obverse side, and FIVE SHILLINGS with a wreath on the reverse.
