Highlighting the sale was a group of four Canada $50 Maple gold coins comprising 2009, 2016, 2017 and 2018 that achieved $7,800, well over its $4,000-6,000 estimate. Also exceeding expectations was a Mexico gold group of nineteen coins that realized $6,000 against an estimate of $3,000-4,000.
United States coins featured a group of four Proof $50 Gold Eagles dated 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 from the Estate of Julia Acton Forrest that surpassed their estimate of $5,000-7,000, selling for $7,200.
The Bank Notes section of the sale offered a number of group lots of United States 1934 $50 Federal Reserve Notes from the Estate of Julia Acton Forrest that each fetched the identical price of $5,100.
A 1936 Five Pound Bank Note issued by The Bahamas Government sold for a stunning $2,400, many times its estimate of $500-750. Designed with a portrait of the newly-minted King George VI, who assumed the throne upon the abdication of his brother Edward VIII that year, the Choice Uncirculated Note featured the signature of the Colonial Secretary Commissioner of Currency, which is the rarer of the two versions issued.
