Most Valuable Gold Coin: Doubloon Sets $9.36 Million Record

The coin that was once known as "The World's Most Famous Coin" is now known as "The World's Most Valuable Gold Coin" after it was sold at a public auction of significant United States coins hosted by Heritage Auctions on January 21, 2021 in Dallas, Texas, for a record-breaking amount of $9,360,000. Out of the seven gold coins that are known to exist, the 1787 gold coin is considered to be the most valuable.

Since the moment the lot was opened, Heritage Auctions' President Greg Rohan was the one who placed the winning bid over the phone with the victorious bidder.

The doubloon is the most exceptional example of its kind, and the auction that took place on Thursday was only the third time that the coin has been sold via auction since the year 1848

In the realm of numismatics and beyond, this particular coin, which is officially known as the 1787 New York-Style Brasher Doubloon, W-5840, NGC MS65★, is widely recognized as "The World's Most Famous Coin."

There have been a number of detective books and films that have contributed to the popularity of Brasher Doubloons. Some examples include Raymond Chandler's The High Window and the feature film The Brasher Doubloon, which was released by 20th Century Fox in 1946.

As far as the typical American citizen is concerned, the Brasher Doubloon is the quintessential example of a rare and valuable coin. It also has a lofty reputation in popular culture that is unrivaled by any other coin.

This particular sample has a very appealing appearance to the eye, the technical excellence is of the highest possible standard, and the historical significance of this matter is really significant.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the previous record for the sales price of a gold coin at auction was $7.59 million. This record was set for a 1933 $20 Double Eagle coin that was sold in New York in the year 2002.
