|At the 2014 ANA World’s Fair of Money in Chicago, the famous 1787 Brasher Doubloon valued at $10 million was on display. At the booth next to that display, master engraver Ron Landis was striking private issue novodels of the Brasher Doubloon dated 1787-2014 using dies he expertly recreated by hand to strike coins using an antique screw press. Each piece was then hand stamped with the “EB” counterstamp similar to the original. Extreme efforts were taken to recreate the process in which the original Brasher Doubloon was produced as closely as possible. Only 500 examples were struck in .9999 fine gold at the show and encapsulated with the special ANA labeling and they quickly sold out. This example of the 1787-2014 EB Brasher Doubloon is encapsulated by NGC in one of the newer-style edge-view holders and is numbered 216 of 500. The coin is 26.4 grams of .9999 fine gold and is marked on the edge with “.9999” and “COPY.” The detail is amazing and the coin is very lustrous and quite eye appealing. It is a work of art that is a pleasure to look at. An amazing piece that is far superior to all prior privately issued copies of the famous Brasher Doubloon.
Because of the difficulty in capturing the overall look of the coin in a single image, I have also included a short high-definition video of the coin towards the bottom of this listing in an attempt to give you a better idea of what this coin will look like in hand. Please note that you may need to adjust the video quality to 1080p and may need to increase the size of the video to full screen in order to see the coin in maximum detail.
