 It is said that records are made to be broken and 2021 was the year for Stack's Bowers Galleries to break them. 2021 saw numerous individual price records set by numismatic rarities, as well as astonishing overall records for several product categories and sale venues. Overall, Stack's Bowers Galleries sold at auction over $212 million in numismatic items across nearly 75,000 lots, making it the single strongest season of auction offerings in their 89-year history. (All prices include the buyer's fee.)

For three decades, Sydney F. Martin of Doylestown, Pennsylvania and Amelia Island, Florida was a preeminent figure in American numismatics. He served as president of the American Numismatic Society and was the author of standard references on no fewer than four early American numismatic specialties. Mr. Martin was a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and founder of The Sytex Group, which provided services to the defense and intelligence communities before its acquisition by Lockheed Martin in 2005.

As the world shifts to a more digitized environment, numismatic items that had previously been reserved for live sales at major auctions are crossing the block at internet exclusive events. The Stack's Bowers Galleries December 2021 Hong Kong sale set the record for the largest online-exclusive numismatic auction, realizing more than $10 million in total sales. (All prices include the buyer's fee.)

The Stack's Bowers Galleries World and Ancient Coins department is delighted to announce that their sales for 2021 have exceeded $100,000,000, far surpassing the total for any previous year. This milestone signals an uptick in market growth and demonstrates the universal trust that both sellers and buyers place in the Stack's Bowers Galleries name. In addition, many industry-wide records were set. In the April 2021 Hong Kong Auction, an 1825 pattern Russian Ruble established the record for the most expensive non-U.S. coin sold by an American auction house at $2,640,000.
