The Brasher Doubloon – America’s First Gold Coin
The 1787 Brasher Doubloon story is a fascinating true story about America’s first gold coin. The Brasher Doubloon story begins with the Father of our Country, George Washington, and his neighbor, and Ephraim Brasher, a patriot, popular silversmith, and Early American businessman, like his more famous contemporary, Paul Revere. Among the great rarities of American numismatics, the 1787 New York Brasher Doubloon is in a class of its own. It has been acknowledged as the most important and valuable coin in the world. This great coin is second to none. It is rightfully recognized as one of the greatest numismatic rarities of the world. The Monaco specimen is the finest known, certified MS63 example of the seven known survivors, which is now poised to reclaim its title of "World's Most Valuable Coin."
Among the great rarities of Americana numismatics, the 1787 New York Brasher Doubloon is in a class of its own. It has been acknowledged as the most important and valuable coin in the world by such luminaries as Henry Chapman and Q. David Bowers. The Brasher Doubloon has been called the most valuable coin in the world for well over a century, and its record of prices realized at auction and private sale does much to confirm this claim. This book covers the various theories that have attempted to explain the purpose of the seven New York Style Brasher Doubloons, along with the history and collector pedigrees that follow America’s first gold coin.
