On May 21, 1996, Stack’s Bowers Galleries predecessor, Bowers and Merena, auctioned the first coin to ever surpass the $1 million mark. The 1913 Liberty Head nickel sold for $1,485,000, easily breaking the million dollar barrier. Fast forward to August 15, 2018, and Stack’s Bowers Galleries once again had the pleasure of offering the Eliasberg 1913 Liberty Head nickel at public auction. This time, it sold for $4,560,000!
