International coin auction
Numismatics is a versatile discipline – both in time and space. The upcoming auction
presents this wonderful versatility in an unusually distinguished manner, and
we look forward to welcome you inside at 10 Baltikavej in Copenhagen’s Nordhavn
district in early May.
On the occasion of the coin auction we have issued three extensively illustrated
auction catalogues. There is the special catalogue of the Jerry Meyer medal
collection, one containing Poul Henning Knudsen’s coin collection IX, and last,
but not least, the general catalogue containing all sorts of exciting coins,
bank notes and medals.
The Jerry Meyer medal collection.
As opposed to coin collections, outstanding collections of medals are extremely scarce. We
offer one such rarity represented by the collection of one of Denmark’s best-known
numismatics, the late Jerry Meyer. The collection contains, among other things,
a beautiful and extremely interesting copy of the medal from the Battle of
Copenhagen in 1801, awarded to Melchior Heymann plus a number of medals minted
during the reign of Fredrik IV i.a. in connection with the Northern War
The Poul Henning Knudsen coin collection.
The auction also presents part IX of Poul Henning Knudsen’s large collection, which
contains coins from the time of Harald Bluetooth to the present times, with a
considerable number of gold coins, double, single, half, and quarter
speciedalers from Denmark and Norway. In line with the previous eight auctions,
the material is very impressive with very good quality and prices in all
Coins, medals, and banknotes from all over the world.
In the general part of the auction Danish coins are plentiful, ranging in time from
the Viking age to modern times. This is exemplified by a pair of imposing
silver double dalers from the beloved King Christian IV as something special.
It is a well known fact, that all that glitters is not gold, but two large and
beautiful ”Ingenio et Arti” medals are not only made from pure gold, but were
also given by Frederik IX to two of Denmark’s most famous actors of all times,
Johannes Meyer and Bodil Kjer. Further goodies can be found in the special
section containing Bruce Levy’s collection of all aspects of Greenland
