The SINCONA British Collection is an extraordinary group of rarities that tell the history of English coinage over 600 years, starting with King Edward III in the 14th century. The initial offerings in a SINCONA auction in November 2021 spotlight more than 500 of these NGC-certified coins, including a spectacular "Una and the Lion," one of the most beautiful and coveted coins in British numismatics.

In September 2021, Spink presented an auction of 52 NGC-certified rarities from the Horace Hird Collection. Experts had believed the collection was sold or gifted prior to his death in 1973, but these exquisite English gold coins were rediscovered by his family. Bidders jumped at the chance to acquire them, some of which represent the only example known in private hands. They realized nearly $4 million, over $70,000 each!
