Did you know that some of the coins in the upcoming Hong Kong Rarities Night Auction are already exceeding their high estimates? Here we highlight three exciting lots, but there are quite a few others so be sure to visit StacksBowers.com to see more.
- Lot 51047 — With an estimate of $10,000 to $15,000, this 1903 Chinese Silver Dollar has already reached a bid of $36,000. We attribute the high bidding activity to the wonderful color of the coin and the high state of preservation.
- Lot 51178 — The estimate range of $30,000 to $50,000 has already been exceeded on this 1919 Chinese Twenty Dollar gold piece. Significant bidding activity has run the price up to $65,000 with over a week to go before the auction.
- Lot 51189 — Last but not least is this 1921 Chinese Silver Medallic Dollar that we have estimated at $20,000 to $40,000. This coin has already received a bid of $70,000 and we expect it to continue to attract attention.
We are excited to see all these surpassed estimates, a sign that the world coin market continues to be strong and offers us the opportunity to build upon our success of the past several years. These items can be difficult to estimate because of the surging demand, once-in-a-lifetime buying opportunities, and a renewed interest in the foreign coin market.
