Vila Rica Moedas of Brazil will hold an auction August 15-16, 2023. Here's the announcement and highlights.
Vila Rica Moedas (www.vilaricamoedas.com) is a Numismatic company based in São Paulo,
Brazil, and it is run by its two partners David André Levy and Hilton Lúcio, both authors of
reference catalogs and accomplished numismatists.
Vila Rica will hold its Auction 17 on August 15th and 16th. The
auction is internet-only and split over two sessions. It will offer
a vast range of Brazilian coins from Colonial to Republican
issues, featuring the 3rd part of the Vila Rica Collection of Silver
Coins (despite the name, the collection is not related to the
auction house). Also featured in this auction will be selections
of the Münster Collection of Silver Coins, modern proofs from
England, Israel and other countries, and a collection of Imperial
and Republican silver coins (3rd System).
The Vila Rica Collection is one of the most accomplished
collections of silver coins ever put together, and the most
important one to be auctioned on recent years. The first part
was sold by Heritage Auctions in May 2021 and the second part
was sold by Vila Rica Moedas in December 2022. The
collection is famous for the high standards of the collector,
resulting on a high quality of its coins as a set. The third part is focused on fractions, of note the early
colonial ones which are very rare to find in decent condition.
