Girard auction opens with $15m of sales, but price rises in bidding

Girard Auction’s first auction on Saturday saw a record-setting $15.6 million in sales.

The auction house’s online catalogue, which is updated daily, shows that buyers paid an average of $5,096 for a single lot in the auction’s final day.

The high for this sale was $15,737.53.

The total value of all bids and lots sold was $29.8 million.

The sale took place at a time of high unemployment in New Zealand and a shortage of cash in the country.

It’s also not the first time the auction house has seen record sales.

The previous record auction was in 2011 when the total sale was worth $11.8m.
