The descendants of Danish tycoon Lars Emil Bruun will auction off a rare coin collection worth $72 million. They have been waiting for this opportunity for 100 years due to Bruun's will.

This is reported by Bloomberg. It is noted:

  • In total, the collection includes about 20 thousand coins and other items like medals, tokens, banknotes, books.
  • Almost all of them are related to the Scandinavian countries.

"The collection will be sold over several years. The sale of the first part is scheduled for next fall," the statement said.

It is noted that when Bruun finished filling his collection, he thought about its national significance. In this regard, he decided that, if necessary, it could become a backup copy of the Royal Danish Coin and Medal Collection.

That is why in his will, Bruun stated that his collection could not be sold for 100 years. However, even after this period, it was allowed to sell items from it only if the Royal Collection remained intact.

"According to the available information, one grandson tried to sell items from the collection before the deadline. But he failed to do so," the authors note.
