Double Eagle arrives in Prague
The legendary 1933 US Double Eagle, the most expensive gold coin ever sold on auction, is to be shown in Prague over the next two days. The coin which is on a seven-nation European tour arrived in Prague on Sunday amidst tight security. The coin is to be shown to the public on Tuesday and Wednesday at Prague’s National Museum. This is the first time that a 1933 double eagle has been publicly exhibited in Europe and the artefact has incited enormous interest. In July 2002 one single 1933 Double Eagle gold coin was sold for a staggering 7, 6 million dollars. The precious gold coin is touring: London, Dublin, Brussels, Prague, Warsaw, Oslo and Helsinki.
