Two important Single-owner collections of British Coins were 100% sold in a sale of Coins on Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at International coins, medals, banknotes and jewellery specialists Dix Noonan Webb.

The sale saw strong prices throughout, with the highest price being paid for a Proof Gothic Crown from the reign of Queen Victoria, that dated from 1847 and sold for £11,160.
