SALE OF HEAVIEST HAMMERED BRITISH GOLD COIN

The Scotsman reports on an upcoming auction of another Scottish
coin, but fails to tell us who the auctioneer is.  Tom Fort tells
me it refers to the same Spink sale of the Lucien LaRiviere
collection.

"The 20lb gold piece, dating from 1575 and featuring the "Boy
King", is the heaviest hand-hammered gold coin ever struck in
the British Isles and is only one of seven believed to be in
the hands of private collectors. The auction will be in London
on 29 March."
