In this section, we present auctions that have set several price records at once. Let’s start off with the auction of the Paramount Collection by Heritage Auctions. The large gold coins made for lots of new records. The auction was held from 25 to 27 March 2021 in Dallas. The 701 lots consisted almost exclusively of large gold coins, international and ancient – the US coins had already been auctioned before.
“The March 25-27 event will go down in numismatic history as the most valuable World & Ancient coins auctions held anywhere in the world”, said Cristiano Bierrenbach, Executive Vice President of International Numismatics.
The lots fetched a total of 41,941,592 US dollars and set a series of new price records, which you can read about below. The prices include the sales fee.
On the Heritage website you can find all resources of the Paramount Collection sale.
