Whyte’s - where collectibles and collectors are truly valued.

The Millennial Collection of  Irish Coinage - €300,000

WHYTE’S is the leading auctioneer of coins and banknotes in Ireland.

In the recent past we have sold several major collections including the Emil Szauer Collection & Stock of Coins & Tokens, The Terenure Collection of Irish Coins, which realised over €150,000, The Millennium Collection of Irish Coinage, which grossed over €300,000, and, in collaboration with DNW, The Bob Blake Collection of Irish Banknotes, which sold for over €500,000.

Whyte’s occasionally hold specialised sales of coins, tokens and banknotes and also regularly include numismatic sections in its renowned History Literature & Collectibles sales. The latter are especially successful as they expose numismatics and notaphily to a wider audience of collectors and set Irish coinage and banknotes in the context of the history of Ireland.

Our superbly produced catalogues, our expertise at marketing, our careful and accurate descriptions, vetted by expert numismatists and notaphilists, and our reputation for integrity have put Whyte’s at the forefront of the numismatic world.
