Stack's Bowers Galleries continues to assemble impressive sales featuring both United States coins and currency and World coins and currency. Here we show off another impressive specimen that will be sold in the April 2021 Hong Kong Auction. Graded by PCGS as MS-64 Prooflike, this 20 Yen (Variety JNDA 01-1) is the single finest known of the type and comes to us from the Pinnacle Collection. The surfaces of the coin are outstanding considering it was minted in 1877. Explore the Coins in Motion video below to get a good sense of the look of the coin.

Stack's Bowers Galleries is poised to sell one of the most important treasures of the 2021 auction year. The 1822 $5 gold piece has long been considered among the most desirable of United States coins, as well as one of the most unattainable. Only three examples are known, and of that tiny number, there is only a single coin in private hands and available to collectors.

​One of many crown jewels in The Pinnacle Collection, this set—dated to Year 3 (1870) of Emperor Meiji's reign​—transcends numismatics and represents a moment of great historical importance in Japan's modern history. Just a few brief decades before this set's production, Japan had been a society closed off from the view of the world. Following the "Gunboat Diplomacy" of Commodore Perry and the United States, however, the West finally began to establish trade with the formerly reclusive country. One such advancement inside Japan was the establishment of a modern mint.
