AIA Sale 35 Chinese & Worldwide Banknotes, Scripophily & Coins

Auction Details

Included in the auction are over 740 lots of Chinese and Worldwide Banknotes that will be offered in two sessions on Monday, September 26th, 2016. The auction will include over 180 lots of rare and desirable Chinese banknotes with many rarities included that are rarely offered at auction. We are also offering a wide range of banknotes from numerous countries that should attract the serious collector looking for those hard to find varieties that rarely if ever show up at auction or are overlooked by most other auction firms.

We are privileged to offer a number of collections that are fresh to the collecting community that have been off the market for over 30 to 50 years. We will also offer additional selections from the Silicon Valley Collection as well as the Hamtramck Collection, both having been put together between the 1950’s to 1980’s by passionate collectors and never having been offered previously at auction.

We are in the process of completing our October and December 2016 auctions of U.S. & Worldwide Banknotes, Scripophily, Coins, and Security Printing Ephemera including additional selections from the Silicon Valley Collection of worldwide banknotes. We are the exclusive auctioneer for the Wall Street Coin, Currency & Scripophily Bourse to be held at the Museum of American Finance in NYC on October 21st to 23rd with the first auction session to be held at the MOAF on Saturday, October 22nd and the second auction session to be held at our offices in Fort Lee on Tuesday, October 25th.
