Patterns: The World’s Most Valuable Coins, Part 3

January 7, 2019

Pattern coins are the most important coins in the world. They are very special because only one - or in some cases a few - were made for approval by the monarch prior to minting as official coinage. France created more patterns than any major country, with creativity and beauty that is is unsurpassed. More importantly they are very rare. Even more importantly they are really good deals and very under valued. Our mission is to locate

and buy as many of the really great ones for our clients. In this week's webinar Greg will take you on a tour of photos of a number of pattern treasures, some of which are very inexpensive.

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.
