The Great Flagship Coins of the World, Part 2

November 8, 2020

In part 2 of the flagship series, we will learn about French 100 Francs. They are the most widely traded Flagship coins on the continent of France. 

Many French citizens hoarded them due to the volatility of their currency. The government devalued the Franc 4 times since the republic was formed in 1789. 

The 100 Francs is both rare and very under valued. Today these grand and beautiful treasures are enjoying global demand. As a result Golden Art is scrambling to acquire as many of the best specimens as possible. 

Everyone should own at least one!

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.
