Consign to a Stack’s Bowers Galleries Auction
Stack’s Bowers Galleries has handled more prominent collections and has set more auction records than any other numismatic auctioneer in the world. Our firm has achieved international recognition as world-record holder of the most valuable coin ever sold at auction — the superb 1794 silver dollar from The Cardinal Collection — sold for over $10 million. This sale eclipsed our previous world record for the most expensive coin sold at auction — the $7.59 million sale of the 1933 double eagle, sold in partnership with Sotheby’s. We also hold the world record for the highest price paid for any piece of currency with our $2.6 million sale of the 1891 $1,000 Marcy Silver Certificate. Those are just a few of our countless records associated with our renowned auction history.
While great rarities and incomparable collections make headlines, most of our reputation has been built coin by coin, banknote by banknote, client by client. Whatever your specialty, whatever the size of your cabinet — whether it be a single piece or a lifetime collection — our team of consignment directors is available to answer your questions and guide you through the entire consignment process.
