Going for Gold, The Watches and Coins Auction 27th Aug 2014 A solid gold version of the familiar humble 50 pence piece, lot 1009, proved itself to be a winner in The Watches and Coins Auction that took place on Wednesday 27th August selling for £380 hammer. This is another example of such items enjoying a definite upwards trend in popularity among collectors with gold (and silver) proof coins exceeding their estimates. Lot 1011 was another such coin, a gold proof two pounds coin that sold for double the lower estimate at £496 including commission. The feature lot of the sale was lot 1077, the Tag Heuer Golf watch and it was a true feature on the night! After a battle between the phone, the room and online it eventually commanded £420 hammer, over £100 above the upper estimate. Lot 1078, the lady’s Bulova wrist watch in box proved popular on the viewing and this was reflected in the selling price of £595 including commission.
