Dix Noonan Webb’s Sept. 28 world coin auction is the third of four
auctions scheduled for the week of Coinex, what is billed as the
United Kingdom’s largest annual coin show.
One of the highlights among the offering of 560 lots of coins,
many of which are from the Edward Roehrs Collection, is a 1794 silver
3-gulden coin issued by the United West India Co.
Cataloged as Krause-Mishler 4 (Standard Catalog of World
Coins by Chester Krause and Clifford Mishler), the coin is one of
perhaps as few as 20 pieces surviving from the original mintage of
1,226, with four of those impounded in public collections, according
to the auctioneer.
The complete catalog can be viewed online at the firm’s website,
