Heritage Auctioneer selling the PR66 1866 Double Eagle

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

Final sale of Double Eagle

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.
