As is tradition, the time has come for me to walk you, the world and ancient coin enthusiast through the Stack’s Bowers official auction for the 2015 ANA World’s Fair of Money. This year, we are proud to present a diverse group of coins and banknotes for your consideration. Among the many consignments you will notice some familiar collection names, including the Demarete Collection, the Q. David Bowers Collection, and the Doug Kaselitz Collection; other collections include the Atteck Family Collection of West Indies Holey Dollars, and the Kramer Collection of Mexican 50 Pesos. Colleagues of mine have already written blogs focusing on specific highlight coins and these will be linked at the bottom of this one for you to refer to.

Colonial History Linked with Four Indian Peace Medals Being Offered in Our February New York Americana Sale

Colonial History Linked with Four Indian Peace Medals Being Offered in Our February New York Americana Sale

By Greg Cohen, Professional Numismatist & Consignment Director, U.S. & World Coins, Based on the Catalog Description by John Kraljevich, Numismatic Consultant

Indian Peace medals are a true tangible link to the history and politics surrounding the relations between the Native American tribes and the governing bodies who made treaties with those tribes. The tradition of awarding medals to important Native Americans began in colonial times, and continued through to 1890. Most collectors are familiar with the silver and bronze medals issued by United States presidents from Washington through Hayes, as these appear on the market with some frequency.
