Monaco’s “Numismatique 2017” is fast approaching, and Editions Gadoury (the Monte Carlo–based coin and auction company who are known publishers of a wide selection of catalogues and price guides of world coins) are also the organisers of the event, and are keeping busy making final preparations. The upcoming show will be the 25th year of Monte Carlo’s Grand Bourse Numismatique et Cartophile, which brings together coins, stamps, bank notes, medals, and historic postcards under one bourse. Representatives of Monaco Post are also in attendance and will be offering a special commemorative stamp and first-day cover for the event. The upcoming weekend includes a highly anticipated auction, which will be held on Saturday, 2nd December, at the Hotel Meridien located on Avenue Princess Grace. With nearly 1,400 lots to bid on from ancient to medieval, European to American, modern, and one-of-a-kind essai strikes from France and Monaco, the auction is always very popular and usually results in some very surprising final hammer prices.
This year’s coin show, which opens on Sunday, the 3rd December, will also have a new home. Previously held at L’Espace Léo Ferré in the Fontvielle district in Monte Carlo, the 25th Bourse will be held at the Hotel Meridien, just minutes away from the Grimaldi Forum and Princess Grace Monument. The number of dealers participating increases yearly, which also means a greater variety and selection of coins and collectibles on offer. The Monte Carlo coin show is a great weekend break for many dealers and collectors since it is conveniently scheduled from the 2nd to the 3rd December, just before the holidays.
Monaco and Monte Carlo are serviced by Nice International Airport with hourly coach connections to the centre of the principality. Also, helicopter service is available every 20 minutes to and from Nice International.
