Record Prices for Sierra Madre Gold Collection

Record Prices for Sierra Madre Gold Collection at GreatCollections

Collection Sold for 77% Over CDN Bid; 1478 Bids Received

December 22, 2016.  Irvine, Calif. – The results are in for the Sierra Madre Collection of U.S. Gold Coins, sold by GreatCollections on Sunday, December 18, 2016.  Comprised of 55 pieces, the coins set many records, helped by the older generation slabs they were housed in.

Ian Russell, President/founder of GreatCollections, commented: "The theme of the collection: Exceptional coins bring exceptional money.  You can pretty much ignore the price histories of coins that exhibit this kind of originality, not to mention the more conservative grading that occurred in the 1990s, particularly with gold coins from the 19th century. “

The 55 coins sold for a combined $107,847, far exceeding expectations of the consignor and GreatCollections.

Russell added: “I remember 10-15 years ago when collections/hoards of old green holders would appear in auction and at a coin show on a regular basis.  These days, however, they are few and far between.”

1847 Half Eagle PCGS AU-55 Old Green Holder CAC Gold Sticker
