Heritage Platinum Night: Joan Zieg Steinbrenner Collection of U.S. Gold Coins

Heritage is pleased to present an important selection of U.S. gold coins from The Joan Zieg Steinbrenner Collection, a highlight of our official auction of this year’s ANA World’s Fair of Money, to be held in Chicago August 14-18. The finest of these coins will be offered during Platinum Night on Wednesday, August 14.

U.S. Gold Coins

Joan Zieg Steinbrenner was active in a large number of philanthropic organizations until her death in December 2018. She was a founding member of several civic organizations and sat on the boards of numerous local and national societies and foundations. In 2017, St. Joseph’s Hospitals Foundation honored her as a “Community Hero” for her work with the hospitals.

George and Joan’s four children (Hank, Jessica, Jennifer, and Hal) continue the Steinbrenner family’s 45-year ownership of the New York Yankees and other sports-related ventures.

Mrs. Steinbrenner had a true collector’s interest in U.S. Gold Coins, and enjoyed expanding the collection to include some of the finest gold type coins Heritage has ever had the privilege to offer. This year’s Signature auction includes 44 lots from the collection, including a famous and historic three-piece 1843 gold proof set, presented as separate lots during Platinum Night. This exceptionally rare proof set is Ex: John Jay Pittman, and includes the 1843 quarter eagle, PR66 Ultra Cameo NGC; an 1843 half eagle, PR66 Ultra Cameo NGC; and the finest-certified 1843 eagle, PR64 Deep Cameo PCGS, CAC.

Other outstanding selections of U.S. Gold Coins from the collection include a rare 1837 Classic Head quarter eagle, PR66+ Deep Cameo PCGS with CAC, the sole-finest example of this proof-only issue (Variety 18, JD-1, Ex: Parmelee-Eliasberg-Bass). An exceptional 1907 Rolled Rim Indian eagle is certified MS64+ PCGS with CAC — one of the rarest of all Indian tens — a coin with beautiful luster.
