The Athens Collection of American Coins

The Athens Collection is a sole proprietorship of American collectibles from the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries. All but one of the coins have a face value of a dollar or less, and about two-thirds of the bids are proof. This collection is presented in a Heritage auction scheduled for 6 p.m. central time on November 22, with auctions now open on Coins.HA.com.

The rarest and most wanted Morgan Dollar from 1921 are undoubtedly the deeply reflected pieces known as Chapman’s evidence. Students in the series are familiar with the 1921 Proof Morgans, most of which are attributed to a special order from Farran Zerbe, and a few of which – around 10-12 pieces – were struck because of Henri chapman. Chapman’s proofs are of significantly higher quality than Zerbe’s coins, and even low-quality coins display a deep mirror in the fields reminiscent of the government-sanctioned Proof Morgans of 1904 and earlier. This is the case with the example of the Athens collection. Despite the modest PR62 quality assigned by PCGS, the fields are clearly reflected, complementing the satin features and overall glossy surfaces. As such, this is a pleasant example of this coveted scarcity of evidence and a must-have article for advanced dollar scholar Morgan.

From November 11 to 14, the Heritage Auctions Signature® American Coins Auction was full of numismatic must-haves, from the first American coins to the wonders of the Old West to modern wonders. Collectors reacted accordingly: More than 3,000 bidders spent $ 11,432,236 during the nearly full four-day event, setting a world record and exceeding expectations on numerous occasions.

1870-CC $ 20 AU53 PCGS. Variety 1-A. This rarity grossed $ 1.62 million at Heritage’s American Coin Auction in November. (Imaged by Heritage Auctions, HA.com.)

In fact, on the very first night of the event, a fierce bidding war drove the final price of an 1870 gold coin to a world record, while a Liberty 1870-CC $ 20 from the Prestwick collection sold for $ 1,620,000. This should come as no surprise, as Carson City’s gold is well known as an avidly collected estate of American numismatics – and the $ 20 Liberty that sold on Thursday is one of the few survivors of the 3,789 that are believed to have been hit. And, rated AU53, it is the best certified at PCGS.

But that wasn’t the only one catching the attention of collectors: at the auction, two other Carson City gold coins from the same collection also sold for far more than expected.

One of them, a $ 20 Double Eagle 1872-CC, made $ 144,000. Unlike the $ 20 1870-CC Liberty, the 1872-CC is not a legendary rarity; it comes from a print run of 26,900 pieces. Its high price can be attributed to the fact that it is graded NGC MS61, and there are only two certified thinner pieces.

1877-CC $ 20 MS62 PCGS.  Variety 1-A
1877-CC $ 20 MS62 PCGS. Variety 1-A. This rarity sold for $ 144,000 at Heritage’s American Coin Auction in November. (Imaged by Heritage Auctions, HA.com.)

An 1877-CC Liberty Double Eagle, rated MS62, also sold for $ 144,000 and is highly regarded as a rare Carson City date; this piece is also tied for best certified, making it a valuable addition to a collection. It is also a historical piece, as the design of the double eagle was changed slightly in 1877: it actually wrote “TWENTY DOLLARS”, replacing the “TWENTY D”. presented previously. This new design, known as the Double Eagle Type 3 Liberty to collectors today, represents the only major change in the design of the American gold coin that took place during the years when the Carson City Mint was operational.

1875-CC 20C MS66 PCGS.  CAC.  BF-2, R.1
1875-CC 20C MS66 PCGS. CAC. BF-2, R.1. This rarity fetched $ 84,000 at Heritage’s American Coin Auction in November. (Imaged by Heritage Auctions, HA.com.)

But not all of the Prestwick and Carson City collection that shone in this auction was gold: an 1875 CC 20-cent coin, rated MS66, sold for $ 84,000. The 20-cent denomination was not well received when minted – in part because it looked a lot like a quarter dollar – and some of the coins were held by the mint until they were finally melted down. in May 1877 by order of the director of the Mint. But time heals all wounds, as evidenced by the popularity of this rarity in this auction.

“The Carson City coin market continues to be very active, particularly for rare dates or premium copies,” said Sarah Miller, senior vice president of Heritage Auctions and deputy general manager of the office. from New York. “The $ 20 CC in particular led the charge with a strong bidding, as all three of these Prestwick Collection offerings exceeded expected levels to find new homes with avid collectors. “

Two early proof coins also sold well above expectations ahead of the auction. Both coins date to the mid-1800s, making them exceptionally rare, as proof coins were not regularly issued by US mint until around 1860.

1846 25C PR64 PCGS.  Briggs 4-F
1846 25C PR64 PCGS. Briggs 4-F. This rarity reached $ 21,000 at Heritage’s American Coin Auction in November. (Imaged by Heritage Auctions, HA.com.)

One, an 1846 Liberty Seated Quarter graduated PR64, sold for $ 21,000. No print run figures were recorded for this 1846 print, but the production total was undoubtedly small – so small, in fact, that seated neighborhood scholar Larry Briggs estimates that only 10 to 12 specimens survived , while PCGS CoinFacts estimates an even smaller population of 8 – 10 examples, across all classes. Heritage catalogers have traced 13 pieces that we believe are different examples, including one in the Smithsonian Institution’s National Numismatic Collection.

1855 10C Arrows, F-101, R.7, PR64 Cameo PCGS.  CAC
1855 10C Arrows, F-101, R.7, PR64 Cameo PCGS. CAC. This rarity sold for $ 16,800 at Heritage’s American Coin Auction in November. (Imaged by Heritage Auctions, HA.com.)

And an 1855 Arrows Dime, rated PR64, grossed $ 16,800, which matches its status as a rare cameo example. This one is also extremely rare in all classes: PCGS CoinFacts estimates the surviving population at 15-20 examples.

1796 10C JR-3, R.5, MS63 NGC
1796 10C JR-3, R.5, MS63 NGC. This rarity fetched $ 43,200 at Heritage’s American Coin Auction in November. (Imaged by Heritage Auctions, HA.com.)

Bids, too, from the earliest days of the United States Mint proved popular at this auction, among them a 1796 Draped Bust Dime graduated MS63 which is one of only two known coins minted from the state of the terminal matrix with a triangular cud on the first T in “STATES”. This renowned piece – which belongs to the Dr George P. French, T. James Clarke, Lester Merkin, John Walter Whitney and Eugene Gardner collections – sold for $ 43,200.

1964-D / D 5C Embossed mint mark, FS-501, MS65 + PCGS
1964-D / D 5C Repoussé mint mark, FS-501, MS65 + PCGS. This rarity sold for $ 9,000 at Heritage’s American Coin Auction in November. (Imaged by Heritage Auctions, HA.com.)

Modern offerings have also flourished among the Colonial and Old West pieces offered last weekend. This included a 1964-D / D Jefferson Nickel which typically sells for under $ 10… the cherry pickers variety. It is a high-end, shiny and attractive example. PCGS has awarded only six copies of this variety in all grades.

“We were very pleased to see the level of collector participation in this auction at all levels,” Miller said. “The history of this country is uniquely told through its coins, and Heritage Auctions is proud, as always, to present these momentous offers to collectors keen to own a piece of this history.”

NE Lincoln Collection

This collection is at the origin of the curiosity of the sender, who discovers in his pocket coins which he finds fascinating at the beginning of his adolescence. This initial interest blossomed when he discovered a local coin store, where he found fascinating copper coins. As his interest grew, he focused on rarer certified coins.

He then decided to broaden the scope of his collection when he concluded that it made sense to own a wider selection of American coins rather than just a few rare rarities. It has been collected by denomination, type, and mint to reflect different periods in American history; in doing so, he gathered a treasure that now includes key issues, rare varieties, patterns and better dated coppers, silvers and golds. Selections from the NE Lincoln collection can be found in the regular ground session and Signature® Internet online session of this auction; Highlights of the collection include, but are not limited to:

One man was “completely amazed” to find one of the first coins minted in the United States in a forgotten sweet box.

The Honorable Wentworth Beaumont said he found the mid-17th century New England Shilling in an old box of Barker and Dobson candy at his father’s house among a collection of old coins.

Mr Beaumont, an artistic advisor, has now auctioned the piece in hopes of raising nearly £ 200,000.

The rare coin is considered one of the very first minted in North America and bears the initials NE for New England and the Roman numerals XII, indicating 12 pence which is equivalent to one shilling.

The coin is said to have been minted in 1652 and will be auctioned online in November (Morton & Eden / PA)

It was identified by coin specialist James Morton, who said the collection of coins found in the tin can was “completely varied” and came “from all over the world and in all metals, ranging from l ‘Antiquity to the 1970s’. .

He added: “I could hardly believe my eyes when I realized this was a prime example of a New England shilling, minted by John Hull in 1652 for use as currency by the first settlers of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. “

Mr. Morton said the coin is the “star of the collection,” which also includes a Massachusetts “Pine Tree” shilling, two examples of “Continental Currency” pewter dollars dated 1776, a bronze “Libertas Americana” “and several British hammered gold coins.

Mr Beaumont said his father recently found the tin in his office.

He said: “If he knew it was there, he had long forgotten it. I had never seen it before and when I opened it I thought it was just a rather weird collection of old random coins.

“However, since I don’t know anything about coins, I thought it was worth checking out, so I showed it to James Morton.

“I am very happy that I did and it goes without saying that I was completely amazed when James Morton pointed out the importance of the rare shilling in the context of North American history.

“I can only assume that the shilling was brought back from America years ago by one of my ancestors.”

Mr. Beaumont, whose family seat is Bywell Hall in Northumberland, is descended from William Wentworth, who is said to have visited New England in 1636.

Several family members would later hold important positions with Colonel America, including John Wentworth and his son, both of whom represented New Hampshire in the Continental Congress from 1774 to 1781.

The piece will be auctioned online by Morton & Eden in London on November 26.

The likeness of the legendary poet and civil rights activist Maya angelou will soon be in your neighborhoods, thanks to a new United States Mint program honoring pioneer American women.

Angelou’s appearance in neighborhoods in 2022 is part of the American Women Quarters program, a four-year initiative that “celebrates the achievements and contributions of women to the development and history of our country. “

From 2022 to 2025, the US Mint will release up to five new inverted models each year. The obverse of each coin will keep a likeness of the president George washington. The women to be added to the coins will be notable in several fields, including suffrage, civil rights, abolition, government, humanities, science, space and the arts, and will come from “ethnic backgrounds, racial and geographic diversity ”.

Public law requires that no living person appears in the designs of the coins.

Angelou is one of the five women to appear in the quarters of 2022. She is joined by Dr Sally Ride, the first American woman in space; Wilma Mankiller, the first female chief chief of the Cherokee Nation; Leader of the suffrage movement in New Mexico Nina Otero Warren and Anna may wong, Hollywood’s first Chinese-American movie star.

“These inspiring coin designs tell the stories of five extraordinary women whose contributions are indelibly etched in American culture,” said the acting director of the US Mint. Alison L. Doone in a press release Wednesday. “The generations to come will examine the pieces bearing these designs and remember what can be accomplished with vision, determination and a desire to improve opportunities for all.”

The Secretary of the Treasury will select the winners each year after consulting with the American Women’s History Initiative at the Smithsonian Institution, the National Women’s History Museum, and the Congressional Bipartisan Women’s Caucus. The six-step design selection process will begin with the initiation of a design process and end with the Mint presenting the final designs of the applicants to the Secretary for final design selection.

Angelou is not the only black woman who should appear on our money: for years there has been talk of becoming a legendary abolitionist Harriet tubman replace the president Andrew Jackson, who owned slaves and moved Native Americans, on the $ 20 bill. But in 2021, we are still waiting for the wishes of a 9-year-old girl letter to President Barack obama from 2014 to come true.

“If we can put a helicopter on Mars, we should be able to craft a $ 20 bill in less than 20 years,” Senator Jeanne Shaheen (DN.H.) said in an interview in June. “It’s all about commitment.

While Angelou’s appearance on the coin will mark the first time that a black woman has appeared on a US currency, it is not the first time that a black person’s face has adorned an American coin.

In the 1950s, Booker T. Washington and George Washington Carver were featured on the half dollar coin.

Through Bullion Shark LLC ……

The following six American coins are the ones that have sold for the highest amounts to date at auction. Because one of them recently exchanged hands during sales made in 2020 or 2021.

1933 Saint-Gaudens Double Aigle – PCGS MS65 CAC

At a special auction held on June 8, 2021, by Sotheby’s in New York City, the most famous (or infamous) American play – the 1933 Saint-Gaudens double eagle $ 20 gold coin – was sold by a shoe designer Stuart weitzman, who bought the coin in 2002 for $ 7,377,000, sold it to an anonymous buyer for $ 18,872,250, a new world record for the highest amount ever paid for a coin and more than double the previous one record! The price is a clear indication of the strength of the US parts market today. This coin was rated MS65 by PCGS but was not paved at the request of the owner.

This coin is the only example of this issue that is legal to own of the approximately 13 that still exist from the original mintage of 445,500 with two in the Smithsonian and 10 inmates in fort knox which were confiscated from the heirs of Israel Switt, the Philadelphia cream jeweler suspected of having conspired with a Currency of the United States used to release the coins in 1933.

1794 Dollar with Floating Hair – PCGS SP66

1794 Silver dollar with flowing hair.  B-1, BB-1, the only known dies.  Rarity-4.  BB Die State I. Money Making.  Specimen-66 (PCGS).  CAC.

The previous record holder for the most valuable coin is this coin, which is the finest known example of the first silver dollar struck by the US Mint. It sold in 2013 for $ 10,016,875 when it was purchased by Bruce morelan, which had it auctioned last October when it did not reach its reserve price. It is estimated that there are still 130 copies of this coin, which were made to be given as gifts to VIPs. The original mintage was 1,758 pieces, but many were melted down due to poor quality.

1787 Brasher Doublon – NGC MS65

Five years before the US Mint in Philadelphia opened in 1792, a neighbor of George washington minted seven copies of this coin, the first gold coins made on our coasts. Of these, all but one had an “EB” hallmark mark on the eagle’s wing, while this example – which is also the best of the seven examples in terms of quality – has it on the chest. It sold in 2011 for $ 7.4 million, then in January 2021 for $ 9,360,000. It was purchased in 1979 for $ 725,000.

$ 10 Eagle 1804 Gold Coin – Deep Cameo NGC PR65

PCGS Listed 1804 Draped Bust Eagle Wins $ 5.28 Million in Heritage Auction

In 1804, the US Mint ceased to produce $ 10 golden eagles, which was the highest denomination minted at the time. When the president Andrew Jackson wanted to give special sets with a copy of each American coin in circulation at the time as gifts on diplomatic missions in 1834-1835, the Mint had to combine the dies of the 1804 golden eagle with the minting technology that existed in the 1830s. Six of these coins are believed to have been minted, three of which still exist. Of these, one is on loan to American Numismatic Association (ANA) for his museum while the other two are in private hands. A copy which had belonged to the famous collector “Colonel” DSE Green and former secretary of the treasury William Woodin sold for $ 5 million in a private sale in 2007. The other coin, which is an NGC PR65 DC, was sold by a collector Bob R. Simpson in 2020 for an undisclosed amount.

Silver dollar 1804 – PCGS PR68

It is arguably the most famous American play and one that, like the Double Eagle of 1933, has been the subject of many books and even more speculation.

No $ 1,804 was minted for circulation. President Thomas jefferson ending the circulation of dollar coins due to the fact that most of the country’s big tenor coins were exported to pay for goods and little returned to replenish America’s supply.

Truth be told, $ 1,804, like the eagle of 1804 mentioned above, was not produced until 1834 and was issued only as part of the State Department’s diplomatic mission to Asia. Only a few were made and their existence was unknown to collectors until the mid-1850s.

Very few collectors have ever owned one; the Smithsonian Institution has three! Collector D. Brent Pogue once had two specimens. The Dollar Dexter, which is considered second best known and has a small ‘D’ engraved in the clouds on the reverse side, and the coin above, which once belonged to the Sultan of Muscat.

In August of this year, Stack arbors sold this incredible numismatic treasure for $ 7,680,000.

1822 Half Eagle $ 5 gold coin – PCGS AU50

The second most valuable gold coin ever to be auctioned is one of three remaining specimens of this ultra-rare gold half eagle from 1822 with an original print run of several hundred. The other two copies are part of the Smithsonian’s permanent collection, the National Numismatic Collection making it, which sold on March 25 for $ 8.4 million, including purchase costs, the only private copy.

It previously belonged to Brand Virgile, who bought it in 1899. Louis eliasberg then bought it in 1945, and finally D. Brent Pogue acquired it in 1982. Unlike most more expensive coins, this is not a premium Mint State coin, but rather of an almost uncirculated part which has suffered some wear from use.
