30k Russian coin to go under the hammer
The 1893 rarity is expected to cause excitement in a Spanish auction
An interesting selection of rare coins has been put up for sale by Cayon Subastas. The coins are from all around the world.
The most impressive piece is probably an 1893 10 Rouble piece from the reign of Tsar Alexander III of Russia. However, the Spanish auctioneers are obviously somewhat uncertain of how desirable it truly is, and have given it a broad estimate of 10,000-30,000.
Very fine Tsar Alexander III coin
Alexander was the second to last Tsar (before the ill-fated Nicholas II), and this very rare coin is in brilliant uncirculated condition. If it sells at close its lower estimate it would appear to have strong investment potential.
The piece is available online now for bidding, with a live auction taking place in Madrid from February 26-27. Alternatively, there is a range of coins to buy online now, here.
