NumisMedia Weekly Market Report

More Record Sales from the Heritage CSNS Auction

May 15, 2023

       Heritage Auctions held lot viewing at the Central States Numismatic Society Convention for their portion of the CSNS official auction with the ensuing sale at their Dallas offices, May 3-7. To say U.S. Gold is hot is an understatement with so many rarities finding new homes, many at prices above estimates. The Gold in this sale was phenomenal, especially in the $3 Proof series. In the chart below are some of the many $3 Proof Gold coins which realized significant bids. Additionally, Gold bullion is holding well over the $2,000 mark and stronger metals nearly always bodes well for rare coins.

1824/1 $2.5 Gold certified by PCGS PR67

From the Harry Bass Jr. Collection, this 1824/1 $2.5 Gold coin is unique in that it is the only coin available to collectors with just one other Proof in the Smithsonian; this PCGS PR67 realized $1,740,000. The 1824/1 overdate was a result of using the die from the earlier 1821 issue which had a mintage of just over 6,000 coins; with such a small mintage, to save on expenses the mint reused the last die since there were no $2.5 Gold coins minted in 1822 or 1823. The last time this coin sold at auction was in 1985 when it was purchased by Mr. Bass Jr for $104,500.

1829 $5 Gold Large Date certified by PCGS PR66+

Rarities are the hallmark of the Harry Bass Jr. Collection and this 1829 $5 Gold Large Date is another exceptional example. There are just 2 known coins with an original mintage of just 5 coins. The other known coin is certified PCGS PR64 with CAC approval and it last traded in a Heritage auction in 2012 for $1,380,000. This PCGS PR66+ sold for $2,880,000. This coin was previously acquired from the heirs of the Virgil M. Brand Collection in 1983 and has been off the market since. Also notable, the 1829 Large Date is a rarity in Mint State as well, with less than 10 coins known to exist; the highest graded PCGS MS66+ sold at auction in 2016 for $763,750. Below are some other highlights from the Heritage CSNS sale.
