Big, Beautiful, Best, Part 4

February 14, 2017

In Part 4, we continue to showcase the great coins that make up the "St. George Slaying the Dragon" design Golden Art Elizabeth II 5 Pounds series. St. George is venerated as a Saint all over the world and the legend has grown to mythic proportions. This beautiful work of Golden Art is now celebrating its 200th anniversary of continuity of coinage. The St. George design is now the world’s longest running coinage design. Coupled with the fact that the 5 Pounds is the world’s longest running Flagship coin series, it makes perfect sense why demand is likely to skyrocket for these treasures. Everyone in the Golden Art family of friends should own at least one of these great treasures because they are very affordable.

In 1990, with rare coin values in their infancy, Greg Holloway smashed the record books with the first sale in world history of any rare coin to bring over $1 million. Despite the fact that the world was in recession at the time, this transaction proved that rare coins have great appeal beyond economic conditions.

Greg actually began his career in 1970 at the age of 13. Before the end of his teenage years, he was recognized by his peers as a top expert. A virtual fixture at numismatic events, Greg has personally attended 1400 rare coin conventions.

Between 1986 and 1987, Greg was one of the 33 founding dealer members of both PCGS and NGC, the worlds two largest professional coin grading services. He was also one of the six original shareholders and graders of NGC for a brief period of time. In 1987, Greg was also one of the original shareholders of the worlds first real time rare coin trading system.

For over 20 years, Greg has been one of the worlds most prolific and respected instructors in the field of numismatics having given hundreds of webinars and teaching at in person conferences.

Today Greg is still active in all aspects of education of rare coins, having recently written the first ever encyclopedia of large English gold coins. Having been the first person in world history to sell any rare coin for over $1 million, Greg is eminently qualified to search for future $1 million coins that can still be bought for a fraction of this sum.
