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 sale of the classic gold coins set many records, helped by the older generation slabs they were housed in.

“The theme of the collection: Exceptional coins bring exceptional money,” said Ian Russell, President/founder of GreatCollections. “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 gold coins sold for a combined $107,847 USD, 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.”
