SANDRO BOTTICELLI, PORTRAIT OF A MAN WITH A MEDAL OF COSIMO THE ELDER, 1474 1. Who collects. Coins have been collected almost since they were first made more than two and a half millennia ago. During the Renaissance, the Medici and Este families had renowned collections. Today, coins are collected by movie stars, business tycoons, bankers, Silicon Valley titans, fashion designers, sports stars, as well as librarians, teachers, and kids. In other words, coin collecting attracts individuals from across the economic, age, and professional spectrum.
Sotheby’s and Stack’s Bowers Galleries are delighted to announce the sale of the spectacular D. Brent Pogue Collection of early United States coins. The collection is composed of over 650 gold, silver, and copper coins, and is expected to be the most valuable collection of coins ever sold. The collection was begun in the 1970s by D. Brent Pogue with the active participation and encouragement of his father, Dallas real estate developer, A. Mack Pogue.
