RECORD-BREAKING COIN AUCTION

BALTIMORE (AP) – A rare 1804 silver dollar fetched almost $3.3
million dollars in what officials say is a record-breaking coin 
collection auction.

A five-part sale of the D. Brent Pogue coin collection that ended
Friday netted a total of almost $106.7 million.

The five auction events were held over the past two years by
Stack’s Bowers Galleries of Santa Ana, California, in conjunction
with Sotheby’s in Baltimore.

Friday’s final auction yielded about $21.4 million, including the 1804
dollar, an 1811 half cent that brought $998,750, and a 1793 Liberty
Cap cent that sold for $940,000, making it the most valuable
circulated cent ever sold.

COINS STRUCK ON THIS DAY IN 1978

The first Susan B. Anthony dollars were struck at the Philadelphia Mint on
December 13, 1978. First strikes at the Denver and San Francisco Mints
followed on January 9, 1979 and January 29, respectively. Mint officials
feared that the coins would be hoarded upon release, so they ordered the 
creation of a stockpile consisting of 500 million coins prior to the release 
date in July 1979. They were minted until 1981, when the series was
halted due to poor public reception and again in 1999.
