In the upcoming Collectible Coins, Gold, Loose Diamonds, & More event, offered by MYNT Auctions, a loose oval 8.5-carat diamond is available. The GIA-certified diamond features 8.5 carats and a color grading of H. It also possesses VS1 clarity, indicating that any imperfections are unlikely to appear without magnification. A rare collectible coin offered in the collection is an Augustus 27 BCE to 14 CE Roman Aureus coin. The piece illustrates an image of the first Roman emperor, Augustus, who ruled from 27 BCE until his demise in 14 CE. The image on the reverse side of the coin depicts a racing bull, which is an allusion to Thurium, a city that the Octavian family had ties to. After Augustus' father's victory over a Spartan army close to the town and subsequent rise to prominence, Augustus was given the surname Thurinus.

MYNT Auctions will offer GIA-certified diamonds in the upcoming Collectible Coins, Gold, Loose Diamonds & More auction. Founded in 1931, the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) has set and maintained gemstone standards through its continued research and by educating both buyers and sellers. In 1953, the GIA used the four Cs of cut, color, clarity, and carat weight to establish the International Diamond Grading System, which is now universally accepted. The GIA has graded the 8.06 carat cushion diamond found in the auction as E in color and SI1 in clarity. The E is the second highest rating for colorless diamonds. The SI1 clarity rating is referring to the diamond’s “slightly included” imperfections not seen by the human eye but found under magnification. Coins certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC) will also be available, including a 96-98 AD Roman Empire Aureus of Nerva with an NGC-certified XF-45 grade. Although not used in the United States until the late 1940s, NGC adopted the internationally accepted Nelson scale with its establishment in 1987. This scale grades coins with a two-letter code for the strike type and a number between 1 and 70 to represent the coin’s condition. An XF-45 NGC grade is assigned to coins that have “complete details with minor wear on the high points.” Visit Bidsquare for auction details and registration, or to view other online auctions.

Operating from 1870 to 1893, the Carson City Mint struck some of the most coveted coins in the history of American numismatics. The Mint was established to make the most of its proximity to the richest silver deposits of Comstock Lode. It is also best remembered for producing Morgan dollars, which constituted a major share of its coinage. An uncirculated 1883-CC S$1 NGC coin issued by the Carson City Mint is a key highlight of the upcoming MYNT Auctions event. The MS67 DMPL coin is named after George T. Morgan, United States Mint Assistant Engraver. DMPL or deep mirror proof-like coins are among the most sought-after Morgan dollars owing to their highly reflective surfaces. Another numismatic lot of interest is a Trajan 98-117 CE Roman Empire AV Aureus NGC AU50. Also known as Marcus Ulpius Traianus, Trajan is regarded as a greatly significant Roman emperor. Like most coins issued under his rule, this one depicts the Emperor in his prime. A loose pear-cut diamond, weighing 6.01 carats, leads the jewelry and gemstones listings. Owing to its elongated teardrop shape, the diamond appears larger than a typical round-cut one.

The “Liberty Seated” design was the longest-running motif in the history of United States coinage. Christian Gobrecht, the third Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, executed the design based on the sketches by the well-known portraitist Thomas Sully. An 1840 Half Dollar coin with the Liberty Seated motif is a key highlight of the upcoming MYNT Auctions sale. This “no motto above eagle” sub-variety (1839-1853) is regarded as one of the rarest in the coinage series. It features the Goddess of Liberty seated upon a rock holding a pole with a phrygian cap in her left hand. Her right hand rests on a striped shield inscribed with “Liberty.” Another exceptionally unique coin is the 1879-CC $1 Morgan Dollar GSA Hoard. Named after George T. Morgan, the United States Mint Assistant Engraver, it was the first standard silver dollar struck since the introduction of the Coinage Act of 1873. A rare airmail cover postmarked “Oct. 8-13-1923” also leads the collectibles listings. The vintage cover was carried from Lympne to Hastingleigh by the Motor Glider, manufactured by the erstwhile Air Navigation and Engineering Co.
