A rare 17th century penny struck in County Antrim has broken an auction record after selling for £6,200.
The penny from Carrickfergus had been expected to fetch £240 to £300, but the price rocketed.
The coin sold for more than 20 times its estimate in a live online auction of historical medals.
International coins, medals, banknotes and jewellery specialist Dix Noonan Webb (DNW) said it had set a worldwide auction record.
The buyer was a collector from the United States.
The auctioneers said the Carrickfergus coin was a "very fine and very rare penny".
They said it set a new world record for the sale of a 17th century British trade token.
Half crown and sixpence
DNW is based in Mayfair, London, but under Covid-19 restrictions, auctions are online.
The auctioneer stands in an empty room - in stark contract to the packed room filled with keen bidders - and people bid online or leave a commission bid.
However, a spokesperson said business remains brisk.
Elsewhere at the auction on Tuesday, a 19th century copper half crown dating from 1812, which was struck in Sheffield, sold for £8,680 to a private collector and a 19th century sixpence dating from 1813, from a workhouse in Birmingham, sold for £4,464.
The sale also included a collection of 18th and 19th century horseracing tickets and passes.
The highest price was achieved for an extremely rare copper-gilt pass from Richmond Racecourse in North Yorkshire, stamped Lord Dundas, which sold for £1,240 against an estimate of £200-£300.
Peter Preston-Morley, specialist and associate director at DNW, said: "The market for quality was very strong in this sale and all the horseracing material was keenly bid on, mostly acquired by private individuals in the UK."
DNW is donating 5% of buyers' premiums to NHS Charities Together.
A total of £24,879 has been donated since the lockdown started.
