(FOXNEWS) – A rare drawing by Leonardo da Vinci, valued at almost $16
million, has been discovered by a French auction house.

Paris-based auction house Tajan announced the discovery of “The Martyred
Saint Sebastian” drawing Monday. This is the first work by da Vinci to be
discovered in over 15 years, according to Tajan, which has valued the
drawing at $15.8 million.

The New York Times reports the sketch is one of 14 unframed drawings
brought into the auction house in March by a retired doctor. The drawings
had been collected by the man’s father.

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.
