CHARLES I GOLD COIN UP FOR AUCTION

Arthur Shippee forwarded the following item from The Explorator
newsletter: " A rare gold coin from the reign of Charles I is
expected to fetch 200,000 at auction next week. The historic
Triple Unite, which is more than 370 years old, was struck prior
to the English civil war. The 3 coin was stolen in an armed robbery
in 1974, but it was later recovered. It is believed to have been
crafted around 1630 by Abraham Van Der Dot, who was the Dutch
medallist to Charles I.

The coin will go under the hammer at Baldwin's Auctioneers,
part of Noble Investments, in London on Tuesday September 26."
