Displayed at the expo, the 1787 Brasher Doubloon was one of the first gold coins struck in the U.S. There are only seven Brasher Doubloons known to be in existence and it is widely recognized to be one of the most important rarities in American numismatics. This display also featured seven elite New York copper pieces, among the finest known of their kinds with impressive pedigrees to collections by famous numismatists of the past.
Margaret Kerry, best known for her work as the model for Tinker Bell in Disney’s animated feature Peter Pan, and Mary Gibbs, best known for her work as the voice actor for Boo from Pixar’s Monster’s Inc., were on-site for fan meet and greets. Autographs and memorabilia were available for purchase.
