Eureka Bar


The mammoth California Gold Rush monetary instrument which was hand-made of gold is the single most valuable item recovered from the “Greatest Treasure Ever Found”, the Ship of Gold.

The giant 80-pound Assay Gold Ingot is famously known as the “Eureka bar.” This unique monetary document has an 1857 face value of $17,433.57 and is literally a currency document made of California Gold Rush GOLD.

The Eureka Bar last sold in 2001 for $8 million dollars, a record for a numismatic item at the time.

The Eureka Bar has been called one of America’s National Treasures. The return to the market after being hidden away for over two decades is an exciting event for sure. The Eureka Bar will be available for sale in a Fractional Ownership offering in 2024. Before the offering goes live, the Eureka Bar will be toured around the world through several major venues before finding a long-term home in a museum, for future generations to admire and enjoy.
