PCGS Begins Certifying Japanese Fantasy Coins with Kagin’s Auction of the Hesselgesser Collection to Be the First Available for Collectors
PCGS has begun certifying Japanese fantasy coinage in a first for the rare coin market. Japanese fantasy issues were minted for hundreds of years from the warring states period through the 1900’s.
These rare and intriguing issues will make their certified debut as part of the Robert Hesselgesser Collection of Japanese and Provincial Coinage being auctioned by Kagin’s Auctions April 16, 2022.
The Hesselgesser Collection encompasses issues that have history going back to the late 1500’s during the warring states period, post-unification 1601 issues, and later. The collection includes all shapes and sizes of hammered gold/silver Japanese fantasy coins created over a time span of a few hundred years.
In addition to the Japanese coinage, this on-line only auction will feature sections of World Gold Coins, U.S. Gold and California Fractional Gold Coinage.
