Spectacular Early American Gold Coins Up For Grabs!

Much like pieces of art each coin is unique. Collectors Dashboard has written about the importance of grading in almost all areas of collecting. Legends Rare Coin Auctions has announced Regency Auction 49 which will be held in Las Vegas December 16, 2021. Their press release is composed entirely of coins graded by PCGS. NGC has many notable sales, however more million dollar coins can be found encapsulated in a PCGS holder.

This group of coins is visually stunning in eye appeal. It may be one of the most spectacular gold coin auctions we have had the pleasure of covering.

There is a pre-auction set of banner images that shows just how visually stunning some of these coins are. (Image below from Legend Rare Coin Auctions)

Collectors Dashboard evaluates high end collectibles as an alternative asset class. This means collectibles are attracting the same capital that could have been invested into stocks or bonds. Many collectibles now cost thousands of dollars (or much more). Collectors with a passion to own a collectible for years frequently have to compete directly against investors whose only desire is to make a profit in the future.

Early American gold coins have been absent from many recent coin auctions. Collectors Dashboard looks forward to reviewing the sale prices realized in this rare and unique meeting of investable coins. The sight of early American gold will be enough to satisfy any coin collector.
