​Seven years ago, Stack's Bowers Galleries and Sotheby's offered the first session of the D. Brent Pogue Collection, Masterpieces of United States Coinage, much to our bidders' excitement. Over the course of the day, May 19th, we sold 128 lots for a total of $25,684,136. This marked the first session of what would become the most valuable coin collection ever sold at auction. Stack's Bowers Galleries has always been trusted by the hobby's finest collectors, so we encourage you to contact us when the time comes to sell your collection!​

If you've been following the coin market in recent years, you know that prices of federal coins in 1988 were, on balance, tiny fractions of what many pieces would sell for today.

​We are pleased to feature a Judd-10 1792 disme that will be a highlight in our August 2022 Global Showcase Auction. The 1792 disme is an important rarity, struck in very small numbers in the earliest days of the United States Mint. Today about 15 copper examples are known to survive in all grades, while only three are known in silver.​
