Welcome to the Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio August 2016 auction! It gives me great pleasure to present this very special sale full of the finest Asian numismatic items available. For many months we have prepared a sale rife with exquisite examples and unique rarities and with every new addition the excitement of bringing them to the auction block has been mounting.

The Stack’s Bowers Galleries August ANA World’s Fair of Money auction is just days away, and the anticipation has reached critical mass. For our final highlight we have chosen this First 8 Reales of Peru. Lima, sometimes considered the most aristocratic colonial capital, received authorization for its mint in 1565, though coinage production did not begin until 1568. The mint in Lima operated sporadically, sometimes with decades in between mintages.

​Lot 50006 of our August 14th Hong Kong Sale features a very rare Specimen Proof Set from the Ta Ching Government Bank. Individual notes on this series are rare and full denomination sets are nearly impossible to find. Typically, these designs are only offered in proof form with face and back printings on separate stock.

The Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio August Hong Kong Showcase Auction and the inaugural Hong Kong Coin Show will both take place later this month. Today’s preview from the vintage Chinese coins offered in Session D is a highly desirable type that always performs well at auction: the Reversed Dragon Pattern Dollar.
