The American Numismatic Society (ANS) has been named a partner for Guinness World Records. The ANS has the foremost research collection and library specialized in numismatics in the United States. These resources are used to support research and education in numismatics, for the benefit of academic specialists, serious collectors, professional numismatists and the interested public.
Guinness World Records has become the epitome of record since the publication of The Guinness Book of Records in 1955. Guinness World Records will now benefit from ANS’s expertise next time a numismatic record is broken. At the moment the Guinness World Records website lists as first numismatic record established with support of the ANS the most expensive coin sold at auction, the 1933 Double Eagle which sold for $18,872,250 (£13,334,400 / €15,495,400) at Sotheby’s in New York, USA, on 9 Jun 2021.
