Over $23,000,000 in Sales Includes Three $1,000,000+ Coins
Did you know that the Larry H. Miller Collection, Part Two,
sold on December 17 as part of our December 2020 Showcase Auction, realized over
$14.5 million? This brings the total for the Larry H. Miller Collection to just
over $23.5 million. The proceeds realized from this cabinet will help
facilitate the Miller family’s $50 million donation to Intermountain
Healthcare’s Primary Children’s Hospital in Lehi, Utah.
By The Numbers: In Part Two there were three coins whose
prices realized were in excess of one million dollars. In addition, 26 coins
were sold for more than $100,000.
Beyond the seven figure coins that crossed the block – the
1804 Draped Bust silver dollar ($3,360,000), the 1894-S Barber dime
($1,440,000) and the 1794 Flowing Hair silver Dollar ($1,050,000) – among the
most interesting offerings of the sale were a collection of six Mormon gold coins. Collectively, these coins realized $1,489,200, led by the finest known
1849 $10 Mormon which realized $840,000. Other notable highlights were the 1797 Draped Bust half dollar ($192,000), the 1912 Sandblast Proof Saint-Gaudens
double eagle ($144,000) and the popular “1776” Continental Dollar ($132,000).
The impressive results generated by the Larry H. Miller
Collection add it to the ranks of the legendary collections we have had the
privilege to offer over the years, the type of collection that is seldom seen.
We appreciate that the Miller Family entrusted their numismatic legacy with
Stack’s Bowers Galleries, and look forward to presenting other legendary
collections in the future.
