Selling with Christie's

Selling With Christies auction at Christies

Christie’s Science & Natural History department has consistently achieved strong results in our global auctions since its establishment in 2016. Past highlights included STAN, one of the most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton ever found that sold for US$31.8 million, and the white-glove sale of Deep Impact: Martian, Lunar and Other Rare Meteorites, which totalled US$4.3 million.


The expertise of our specialists is rooted in the history of science — spanning renaissance scientific instruments, Enigma machines, Apple 1 computers and other modern-day breakthroughs — complemented by a vast knowledge of the natural history and space exploration markets. Due to the diverse range of medium available in this category, from important scientific discoveries and instruments to minerals, meteorites and rare books, we work alongside other departments to present your work in the best possible selling channel.


Following the success of our recent sales, we are currently inviting consignments at all price points.
