The Most Expensive: Coins in the World

Many coins are worth a fortune today, but these specimens are at the very top: we present the 10 coins that sold for the highest sums throughout the world.

Included are all results that we were able to determine, including primarily auction results, but also private transactions. The indicated prices include auction fees. Coins that would have made the list more than once, identical coin types and years were cut to avoid repetition.

The fact that 7 out of 10 all-time records were set in 2021 and 2022 says a lot about the current state of the market. Moreover: almost all results were achieved by US dealers and auction houses and – what’s more – 9 of these 10 coins are US coins.
