Donated Gold Coin Brings $517,000

May 2, 2017

     Heritage Auctions hosted the official sale at the just completed Central States Convention and the highlight coin of the sale was the 1866 $20 Gold with Motto in NGC PR65 Cameo with a Gold CAC sticker which brought $517,000. This is one of two certified in PR65 by NGC (PCGS has certified two as well). With just 30 minted originally it is estimated that there are only 14-16 survivors today. An important side note, the proceeds will help build a new GracePoint Church; an anonymous lady donated the $20 Gold coin just in time to guarantee a loan for the building fund.
