This is just a short note to let you know how the two interesting coins I blogged on earlier, month did at auction on eBay.
As expected, there was plenty of interest in the Isle of Man rally 20p coin Showing the Subaru Impreza leading the Ford Cosworth around a bend. However, despite plenty of viewers, my overconfident opening bid mark of three pounds was a little too ambitious and the auction ended without a bid.
It was a different story for the 2002 Manchester Commonwealth Games £2 coin, however.
Again there was plenty of interest but in this case it was accompanied by a cluster of determined bidders before the coin was finally won by a collector from Oxfordshire with a bid of £4.20 – surpassing the DoubleTheMoney target.
