Default The most valuable coins in the world

Texas property developer's treasured collection from the early years of the American republic is expected to fetch more than $220MILLION at auction
Quote:
The collection, built up over 35 years by Texas property developer A. Mack Pogue and his son, D. Brent, is known as the 'pinnacle' of coin collecting
Each steel die used to strike coins in the early 1800s was painstakingly produced by hand, creating variations that are prized by collectors
It will be sold in a series of auctions in New York and London, culminating in a final sale in 2017
