Catawiki’s special auction offers collectors and history enthusiasts the chance to own this unique commemorative coin, which is one of only 25 made. The 5oz coin, which was released by the Westminster Mint in 2006, is estimated to sell between £8,000 and £10,000. Kevin Peacock, Catawiki’s specialist coin auctioneer, comments, “This 90th anniversary commemorative coin was produced to remember the historic events of the Battle of the Somme. The legacy of this battle still lives on today and we’re sure, as with all remembrance pieces, this auction will attract a lot of attention and a great number of bids.” The auction will run until the 19th March 2016 at: http://auction.catawiki.com/kavels/4764745-great-britain-5-oz-gold-proof-2006-the-90th-anniversary-of-the-battle-of-the-somme-gold
What is CatawikiFounded in 2008, Catawiki was originally designed as a website where collectors could manage their collections online. In 2011, Catawiki started hosting weekly online auctions in various categories including art, antiques, classic cars, watches, jewellery, fashion, comics and stamps. Most objects on Catawiki have a fascinating story and you won't be able to find them in an average store. Before being auctioned, each object is screened by our extensive team of experts. They help guarantee a varied and high quality selection of lots in our auctions. Nowadays, for millions of people around the world, Catawiki is the place to go for buying and selling special objects. Catawiki has offices in the Netherlands, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Belgium and Sweden among others. In 2015 Catawiki received an investment of €75 million and won the award for being the fastest growing company in Europe.
Our BeliefsWe strongly believe that everyone should be able to buy and sell special objects every day in an exciting, easy and secure manner. That is why we are constantly working to make the Catawiki experience as special as the objects themselves.
Special ObjectsOn Catawiki everyone can find something to suit his or her interests. Every week tens of thousands of fascinating objects are available in our auctions. A few examples of objects that have been auctioned on Catawiki in the past include: a complete mammoth skeleton, the most expensive LEGO brick in the world, the pope's hat, a meteorite from Mars, Napoleon's hair, the oldest condom in the world and Muhammad Ali's boxing gloves.
