This sector completely covers the numismatic market: from ancient Greek and Roman coins to Medieval, Celtic and Byzantine and contemporary coins, including trials and errors which are of value to collectors. A large section is reserved for coins from pre-unification Italy and the House of Savoy, as well as for the monetisation of the Kingdom of Italy and the Italian Republic. Foreign coins are also showcased, both from countries with a long numismatic history such as Great Britain, Russia, Germany and France, and countries emerging in the sector such as Brazil and China.
Aste Bolaffi is a consolidated global specialist thanks to its serious and reliable study of the objects handled and has had the pleasure of handling some of the most interesting Italian and international collections. These include the Roman Aurei belonging to the Metropolitan Museum of New York, ceded in 2014, and the Fattovich Collection of medals, orders and decorations from the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, which featured in three phaleristic auctions between 2015 and 2016. Aste Bolaffi's international recognition is supported by its continuous presence at the most important European sector fairs and demonstrated by the increasing number of foreign collectors who turn to this department for their purchases at auction or online.
Record sales in this sector include a 10 scudos of Charles Emmanuel I of Savoy sold for 220,000 euros in 2007 and a 10 scudos of Victor Amadeus I sold for 162,000 euros in 2012; notable foreign coins include a 10 ruble of Elizabeth I of Russia from 1758, which sold for 70,000 in 2012 and four gold pounds of George IV from 1825 in proof versions, sold for over 60,000 euros in 2016.
