In a blockbuster sale, Three Treasures – Collected by Stuart Weitzman shattered auction records for a sale that totaled $32,039,250 USD.

The 1933 Double Eagle Coin broke auction records as the world’s most expensive coin, selling for $18.9 million USD. The sale marks only the second time this particular coin has set a world record. It was previously sold at Sotheby’s New York in 2002 for $7.59 million USD.

As for the Inverted Jenny Plate Block, this American philatelic item is considered one of the most well-known and sought-after American stamps. It eclipsed its own record selling for $4.9 million USD.

In a statement, Stuart Weitzman said, “It has been an honor to be a custodian of these three legendary treasures and it fills me with great joy to have fulfilled a childhood dream of bringing these remarkable pieces together into one collection.” All the proceeds from the sale are expected to benefit charities including The Weitzman Family Foundation.
