GreatCollections to auction two iconic American coins on June 14 to benefit charity
Two of the most famous American coins ever minted are auctioned by GreatCollections to benefit the Andre ‘F. Toce Sr. Family Foundation, a non-profit organization that has donated to various causes including supporting orphaned children in Africa and shelters. for abused women.
The two coins, an 1895 Morgan Silver Dollar, rated PCGS Proof-63, and a rare 1907 Saint-Gaudens High Relief Gold Double Eagle, rated PCGS MS-64, are expected to sell for over $ 60,000 when sold to auction on Sunday June 14 on www.greatcollections.com.
In 1895, the US Mint did not put regular business coins into circulation, however, 880 proofs were produced. Many Morgan Dollar collectors acquire proof to complete their set, and he is considered the “King of Morgan Dollars”. GreatCollections set the all-time record for the 1895 Morgan Proof dollar auction, when it sold one of the best in the world for over $ 200,000 last year.
Augustus Saint-Gaudens created one of the most classic coin designs in the world with the iconic high relief version of the Double Eagle. Only 11,250 were produced, before moving to a low relief design so that it could stack more easily. The High Relief version was also laborious to produce, with each part requiring five strikes from the punch press, making mass production impossible.
Ian Russell, President of GreatCollections, said: “We appreciate the opportunity to auction these two famous pieces to benefit a charity that supports so many great causes. “
