Limited-Edition 1787/2014 Brasher Novodels Now Available
Monaco Rare Coins has loaned the ANA the finest-known example of the famed 1787 Brasher Doubloon, now insured for $10 million, for the ANA’s Museum Showcase at the ANA World’s Fair of Money taking place in Rosemont, IL on August 5-9, 2014.
Mark Salzberg, chairman of NGC, the firm which most recently certified the historic “EB on Wing” Brasher ultra-rarity as MS-63 with a Virgil Brand-Monaco provenance, calls this coin, “one of the most sought-after coins in existence, and this example is likely the most important coin ever certified.” Since setting a then-world record in 1907 when selling for $6,200 at public sale, many noted numismatic scholars, dealers and collectors have called it “the world’s most valuable coin.”
On July 25th, Monaco Rare Coins president Michael Carabini and vice president of numismatics Adam Crum displayed the unique Brasher Doubloon for the media. A number of articles and videos have since appeared:
Pure Gold Brasher Novodels To Be Introduced at ANA World’s Fair of Money
A total of 500 Brasher Doubloon Novodels (with ANA provenance) will be struck in pure .9999 fine gold at the ANA convention and will be available for purchase at $1,975 each. Master Engraver and Coiner Ron Landis of the Gallery Mint Museum will strike the Novodels on an antique screw press on the bourse floor of the ANA show, and will hold discussions on how the coins were designed and made in 1787 – the year goldsmith Ephraim Brasher produced his famed Doubloon.
Monaco Rare Coins will donate $50,000 from the proceeds of the Novodel sales at the ANA show to support ANA educational programs.
