Stack’s Bowers Galleries presents The Eldorado Collection of Colombian and Ecuadorian Coins With the New York International Numismatic Convention

The Eldorado Collection
of Colombian Coins and Paper Money, offered in two auction catalogs, is an
important event in Latin American numismatics and is the finest ever cataloged.
It is a fitting backdrop that the sales will be conducted as part of our official
auction at the 46th annual New York International Numismatic Convention being
held in 2018 for the first time at the Grand Hyatt Hotel over historic Grand
Central Station. Over its formation, much of the collection was obtained at
these shows and the auctions that were held in conjunction with or directly
before them.

In the decades since the
Eldorado Collection of Colombian Coins was first undertaken, the goal has been
building the finest and most complete collection of Colombian coinage ever
assembled. Taking a broad view of history, beginning with the 1622 coining of
the first gold coin of the New World at Cartagena, the Eldorado Collection
includes cobs, pillars, and portraits; copper, silver, and gold; rare varieties
and major types; and even coins of Ecuador, which was part of Gran Colombia
before 1830.

The Eldorado Collection
of coins and paper money is so sweeping in scope, that these catalogs are the
initial offerings that feature many of the rarest and highest grade selections
from this epic cabinet.

World numismatics and
research in this field have a rich tradition at Stack’s Bowers Galleries. The
Eldorado Collection is of such importance, that we are pleased that John
Kraljevich, Jr. has written the coin descriptions included in this catalog. The
cataloging for the Colombian paper money sessions (offered in a separate
catalog) is by Bruce Roland Hagen.

We are proud to present
these incredible numismatic selections to the collecting community. We pay
tribute to the effort and acumen required to assemble such a fine collection.
We encourage collectors to recognize the importance of this opportunity to
obtain some the finest treasures of Colombian numismatics.
