Auction n°12, The French Collection
It is with a great emotion at MDC Monnaies de collection that we present to auction in October 2023 the “French Collection”.
This collection of 540 lots, built for over 40 years, gathers the most beautiful coins from the French Revolution to the Fifth Republic, with a vast majority of Top Pop.
The auction will take place in Monaco at the Hôtel Métropole on the 11th of October 2023, from 1:30 pm to 4 pm (lots 1 to 296) and then from 4:15 pm to 7 pm (lots 297 to 540).
Today, it is not possible to recreate such a collection, and we know that many collectors will find in it the special coins they have been looking for to complete their collection.
We have printed, on this occasion, a bespoke catalogue. It has been built to embody the Proustian madeleine that are French coins, a must-have textbook for numismatists.
At MDC Monaco, we have the pleasure to announce our next numismatic auction n°13, which will take place at the Metropole Hôtel in Monaco, on Thursday the 12th and Friday the 13th of October 2023.
