Goldberg Coins and Stack’s To Conduct Joint Auction in September 2009

On September 7th 2009, Stack’s Rare Coins of New York City will join Ira and Larry Goldberg Coins and Collectibles in auctioning an incredible old-time collection of Hawaiian coins, medals, and currency, certainly to be the most outstanding offering in our generation. The two firms will present and publicize this remarkable offering, and staff from both companies will conduct the auction at the Crowne Plaza in Beverly Hills, California.

It is not the first time the Goldberg’s and Stack’s have conducted a joint auction. “We worked with Stack’s for the Apostrophe Sales from 1979 through 1990, as well as the Charles Kramer Collection Sale in 1988. All were highly successful sales,” says Larry Goldberg. Christine Karstedt, president of Stack’s, commented “This is one of the most significant specialty sales to be held in American numismatics. The depth and breadth of the offering will provide opportunities for the most advanced specialist as well as to those with a beginning interest.”

The consignor spent many years assembling 50 examples of each coin, where possible, including even the key 1928 commemorative Hawaiian half dollar. He also assembled over 350 Hawaiian notes, comprising large and small size, and obsolete.

There are numerous Hawaiian Proofs in silver, and several of each in copper, most of which are very rare and some of which are incredibly so. In total, there are close to 1000 Hawaiian items in this collection. Some of them have not appeared on the market for many years, creating multiple once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for bidders. Q. David Bowers will introduce as well as catalogue the collection, working with staff experts, which will be presented in a single catalogue, available through both auction firms. The collection will be listed on both companies’ websites for live bidding, and will be listed on as well.

The Goldbergs and Stack’s look forward to once again working together to auction this fine Hawaii collection.

More information, including online catalogues, will be found on and The collection will be on display at the ANA Convention in Los Angeles. The collection itself will be on exhibit in New York City and in Beverly Hills at times to be announced. A fine printed catalogue may also be ordered from either firm in the upcoming months.
