Up for your consideration is this historical 1999 PCGS MS-69 World Trade Center (5) Coin Gold Eagle set.
The set consists of (all coins dated 1999 and graded MS-69) $50,25,$10W unfinished proof die, $10 business strike, $5
I'm not going to get into a thousand accolades about this set, this is one of those rare cases I'll let the coins do the talking.
However! I will state, that PCGS only certified a total of FOUR of these historical sets back in 2002, meaning that only 4 people in the world can ever own one.
As a bonus which none of the other three sets have, this set will also include THEE finest example of both the 1999 $5 Canadian "Certified" heat damaged Maple and finest 1999 $5 Canadian Maple with the RCM privy mark.
This set will also be framed in a very expensive museum quality frame with a certificate stating that this is the FIRST set of the FOUR that were put together with the bonus coins as an exclaimation point to that fact.
ALL FOUR sets were put together by one person and each set was made months apart and only AFTER the discovery of the first $10 W struck with unfinished proof dies.
The owner of this set wishes to remain private and has contracted us for the next 6 months to find a suitable buyer.
This set was recently shown at the Baltimore coin show March 22-25 and is currently at the Singapore International Coin Fair March 30 - April 1 and will be on exibit at the show during this auction.
There's quite a bit of interest in this particular set, as this is the first time it's been offered for sale and exibited in Asia.
The only example we were able to find currently being offered for sale, is this example on the site that starts with the letter "e" item number 230616821162 with a price of $165,000.
The above listing had SIX offers all SIX offers were rejected by the seller.
This set is worth a bare minimum of $150,000 and is not for everyone, but its sure nice to look at.
The last example of this set to sell was in June,2007 for $107,000 that was for set #4.
Set #4 traded hands only one time before that for $85,000 late 2005.
***This set will be delivered via Brinks Truck white glove service if the buyer so chooses.(Delivery to business or financial institutions only as per Brinks regulations)
