$100 million rare coins at ANA show

More than $100 million of historic rare coins and currency, including the first public exhibit of a $25 million collection of the United States’ most beautiful gold coins, will be on display at the American Numismatic Association’s (ANA) World’s Fair of Money Aug, 8-12 in Pittsburgh, Pa.

The Elite Collection of Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles, 1907-1932 – the finest of the series ever assembled will be on display for the first time ever.  The 61 coins (53 Business Strikes plus eight Proofs) include highlights from former great collectors such as Eliasberg, Akers, Duckor, Simpson and Koessl. Thirty-five of the 61 coins are either the single finest known or tied for finest.

Tyrants of the Thames 2.0 is a brand new exhibit as well with select pieces from the Tyrant Collection (thetyrantcollection.com). This exhibit will showcase about 300 of the finest English coins outside of Great Britain (and possibly the finest collection in private hands). The $30 million museum-quality display features 1,400 years of historic English money and includes one of the five sets of never-issued gold and silver coins dated 1937 depicting King Edward VIII, who famously gave up the crown for the woman he loved. This will be only the second time these coins have been displayed in the United States, with tens of millions of dollars in exhibit improvements and additions since the last time it was displayed.
