Silvano DiGenova talks rare $20 gold Proofs

Charles Morgan, Editor of CoinWeek, talks with US Coin expert Silvano DiGenova about 19th-century $20 proof gold. These coins represent the top 1% in all US numismatics.

Silvano has been handling coins such as these for quite some time, and the conversation expands with insights into the high-end coin market, $20 Proof Gold and discussing collectors such as Eliasberg, Trompeter, Norweb, Col. Green and the like. Today it is a near impossibility to put together some of these complete sets in many series, irrespective of ones resources. Very Interesting!

Great conversation with a person that has seen much and knows even more.

Check back on a regular basis this week, as we will be posting multiple impromptu and less formal video “insider reports” EVERY DAY. ONLY on CoinWeek!
