This offering comes on the heels of the firm’s record-setting sales of Bitcoins in their April and June 2022 auctions, where strong premiums of up to 5000% were realized. Their Summer 2022 sale features the popular Casascius, Satori, BTCC, and MoonBits series in a range of denominations from 0.001 Bitcoin to 5 Bitcoin, as well as several Fresh LTC 0.5 Litecoin pieces for collectors to pursue.
This selection is highlighted by an incredible 2012 Casascius 5 Bitcoin “Bitnickel” that is one of only two examples certified by PCGS.
Stack’s Bowers Galleries is also delighted to present an extremely rare Double Error 2011 Casascius 1 Bitcoin which represents one of the Holy Grails of the series.
The Summer auction also represents the firm’s debut of a silver example from the Casascius series, where a stunning 2013 Casascius 1 Bitcoin graded SP-69 (PCGS) will be presented.
In addition, fractional Satori, BTCC, and MoonBits offer attractive entry-points for collectors looking to dip a toe into this category, and offer a range of denominations from 0.001 to 0.5 Bitcoin. Seldom-seen examples from the Fresh LTC series also present collectors a rare opportunity to acquire this grassroots issue.
Featuring 42 lots in total, the Stack’s Bowers Galleries Summer 2022 sale represents the largest offering of physical cryptocurrency ever presented in a live auction. These pieces will be sold at the end of the Rarities Night session which opens for live bidding on Thursday, August 25th immediately following the conclusion of Session 7.
