Highest Price Paid for a Rare Coin

The highest price paid for a single rare coin was $7.59 million for a 1933 Double Eagle.  The coin was auctioned by Sotheby’s and Stack's and more than five hundred would be buyers were in attendance, but only a few were able to go above the $2.5 million starting bid.  This 1933 $20 Double Eagle coin was reputedly once owned by the King Farouk of Egypt. What makes this coin interesting is that the 1933 Saint Gaudens, as it is also known, were never officially released into circulation by the U.S. Government.


Reportedly, 445,500 of the Double Eagle coins were minted in 1933, but in an effort to steady the economy, President Roosevelt took gold coins out of circulation.  It then became illegal to own gold coins unless they were collectible coins.  However, some of the gold coins made it out of the mint before they were melted down and many believe that there may be as many as twenty in private collections.  The coin auctioned in 2002 was part of the twenty, of which many have been confiscated by U.S. Government. As a matter of fact, the U.S. Government conducted a sting operation in order to get the coin back before it was auctioned.

By this time, the owner of the 1933 Double Eagle was a coin dealer from London named Steve Fenton.  It is unclear how he came to own the coin, but after the authorities confiscated it, he sued to get the coin back.  The coin was once stored at the World Trade Centers in New York, and was moved to Ft. Knox only after Fenton and the U.S. Government came to an agreement and just a short while before the towers were attacked and destroyed by Al Qaida.  The agreement stated that the coin would be sold at auction and the proceeds of the sale would be split by Mr. Fenton and the U.S. Government.  The coin was purchased by an anonymous phone bidder.

Dumb Mikey and His Cheating Wife
