    G'day Folks,

    Well, as the last "Fractional Auction" was well received (congratulations to the Winners) I thought another was in order. On offer some repeats of items from the last one (Bahama Dollars, Crowns, Florins and Half-Dollars...sorry, all the Scottsdales have been spoken for...for now) and a couple of new items (Dollar & Dump Sets and a special Masterpieces in Silver Set)

    Auction finish starting at 18:00 AWST (20:00 QLD / 20:30 SA / 21:00 VIC/NSW), Tuesday 14th March...TONIGHT!!!
    *with the obligatory 5 minute from last bid per Lot to allow for post time lock-outs, anti-sniping, entertainment etc*

    The below example gives an example for the finish process, times to be adjusted to suit each particular Lot...
    (eg. last post before 17:55 (19:55/20:25/20:55) with no further bids that Lot finishes at 18:00 (20:00/20:30/21:00)...if a bid comes in at 17:58 (19:58/20:28/20:58) then the auction for that particular Lot now finishes at 18:03 (20:03/20:33/21:03)...unless further bids extend it by a further 5 minutes etc...)...hopefully that makes sense...

    ~ SPOT RESERVE - Highest bid over Reserve price will be the winner on ALL Lots :D

    Postage at Winner's Choice/Cost/Risk (at this stage ;) )

    BONUS FREE Pre '46 Florin(s) (or '66 Fiddie(s) or '64 Kennedy(s) ) for winners of Multiple Lots ;)

    And without further ado, on to the Auction...

    Lot 1 - 9 * 1966 Bahama $1 Coins ASW 4.2oz - (Reserve - $95)
    These beauties are 80% silver (like our '66 Fiddies) and weigh in at 18.14gm each. Mintage - 406,000
    Interestingly too the Bahamian Dollar is pegged to the US$ at a 1 for 1 ratio...Wikipedia

    Lot 2 - 3 * Holey Dollar & The Dump Sets ('88, '89 & '90) ASZ 3.75oz - (Reserve - $85)
    Each Set comes complete with a booklet detailing the history of the coins and of the background stories to the images used on them.
    Interestingly it would appear that these were the first of the "Legal Tender" Silver Coins released by the Mint after "The Gold Corporation" was created by a State Act of Parliament. Wikipedia
    They also pre-date the Kookaburra Series of coins...[imgz=http://forums.silverstackers.com/uploads/1351_dandd_set_01.jpg][​IMG][/imgz]

    Lot 3 - 1 * 1988 "Masterpieces in Silver" 13th Sydney Coin Fair Edition ASZ 2.2oz - (Reserve - $50)
    This was the first Set in the Series and the Coin Fair edition was limited to 5000 Sets (Total Mintage 25,000)
    Each coin is a Proof Strike in 92.5% Sterling Silver.

    Lot 6 - 15 * Pre-46 Florins (3 each of '36, '40, '42, '43 & '44) ASZ 5oz - (Reserve - $112)
    The original "2 bob" coin, these were changed out for our current 20cent coins in the 1966 "Decimalization Swindle" (24pence became 20cents and no more silver for you :p) Wikipedia
    For ~70/80 year old coins these are in fantastic condition ;)
