This past week, the world coin catalog for our Official Auction of the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Baltimore Expo arrived in the office, and I sat with it for a few hours and enjoyed reviewing the coins and banknotes being offered in the sale. We are proud to offer several important collections including the David Gray Collection; selections from the collections of the Strong, Rochester, New York; and coins from the George Gund III Collection.

In an offering of historic proportions, our Official Auction of the ANA World’s Fair of Money will feature in excess of 300 lots of Russian coins ranging in value from a few hundred dollars into the six-figure range. Condition and absolute rarities abound, and many coins are pedigreed to important collections such as the George Gund III Collection and the Demarete Collection. Much has already been written and publicized about lots 1545, 1546, and 1547, the 1895 pattern 1/3 Imperial of 5 Russ, 2/3 Imperial of 10 Russ, and the Imperial of 15 Russ from the Gund Collection.

The Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio world numismatic team is very enthusiastic for the upcoming ANA World’s Fair of Money to be held in Chicago this August. As part of our official auction for this event we will offer some of the ultimate Russian numismatic rarities. The three coins featured here represent a complete pattern set from an unimplemented experimental monetary revamp.

In January 2007, we had the pleasure of offering selections from the George Gund Collection, which met with fantastic results. At this year’s official ANA sale, we will be featuring the remaining world coins from Mr. Gund’s impressive collection. There are many important rarities and type coins from various countries, but in this article, I will focus on the extensive selection of Czechoslovakian gold coins from 1929 to 1951.
