Legend Coin Auctions Brings Over $7.7 Million in Record-Breaking Online Auction Hosted by

New Jersey-based rare currency auctioneer Legend Coin Auctions, LLC ( reported over $7.7 million in gross auction proceeds through a recent online auction hosted by—the leader in internet bidding solutions and webcast bidding for live auctions. The two-day sale was hosted in New Orleans and included a curated collection of 855 rare collectible coins, 237 of which were silver dollars.

Last week’s auction included a number of especially rare and valuable coins. Its most noteworthy silver dollar was an MS65 1892 piece. Of the few surviving from this date, there remain even fewer that did not enter circulation since those held in government vaults were melted by mandate of the Pittman Act of 1918 (which ordered the conversion of 350 million silver dollars into bullion). The Mint State silver dollar sold for a hammer price of over $193,000. The auction also brought nearly $160,000 for a 1914 Lincoln cent piece (an especially rare mintage). Other highlights include an 1805 half eagle GEM-quality liberty coin that brought over $61,000, and an especially high-end 1865-S quarter surviving from an original mintage of only 41,000 that brought nearly $65,000.
