PR Cameo Double Eagle Sold for Charity at Central States
An Indiana church got a gigantic boost to its building fund at 10 p.m. Thursday at the Central States Numismatic Society’s 78th Anniversary Convention at Schaumburg, IL.
A Proof-65 Cameo $20 gold piece with a gold CAC sticker fetched $440,000 plus a 17.5 percent buyer’s fee at Heritage Auction’s Platinum Night sale of rare United States coins. The total price was $517,000
As the bidding bounced between floor and phone, Heritage President Greg Rohan noted, “It all goes to charity.”
The coin, one of only 10 known to exist, was donated to the Gracepoint Church in Valparaiso earlier this year as “seed money” for a church building fund.
