Colossal 7 Kilogram Gold Commemorative from The Royal Mint Brings $660,000 at the Stack’s Bowers Galleries 2024 NYINC Auction

Author: Stack's Bowers Galleries / January 24, 2024

A unique masterpiece from The British Royal Mint, became the most valuable lot of Stack’s Bowers Galleries’ January 2024 Auction when it crossed the auction block for $660,000 on Friday, January 12. The firm’s sale of ancient coins and world coins and paper money was held in conjunction with the New York International Numismatic Convention (NYINC) and realized a total of nearly $13 million across 11 live and Internet only sessions.

The massive Gem Proof Gold 7 Kilogram coin, denominated as 7000 pounds, was produced to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee celebrating her remarkable 70-year reign. Determined to make this piece as impressive as the historic landmark it celebrated, The Royal Mint dedicated unmatched care and precision to its bespoke production. Given the coin’s singular craftsmanship and presentation, as well as its 7-kilogram weight in pure gold, it is easy to see why collectors and investors were eager to attain this one-of-a-kind treasure.

Stack’s Bowers Galleries is proud to have presented this groundbreaking item, which now holds the record for the highest price realized for any British coin sold at Stack’s Bowers Galleries to date, a new benchmark in the firm’s ongoing relationship with The Royal Mint. The two organizations joined together in August 2023 to present a special auction sale of Royal Succession Sovereign and Britannia coins that realized more than $5.1 million in total prices. In February 2024, Stack’s Bowers Galleries will once again work with The Royal Mint to present an unprecedented auction of coins that have been tested and evaluated as part of Great Britain’s annual Trial of the Pyx.
