2. 1933 Double Eagle

Price: $7.59 Million

The U.S. Gold Double Eagle Coin is the second most expensive coin which was minted in 1933. Reports say that 445,500 Double Eagle coins had been minted but none of them were released officially for circulation due to the discontinuance of the domestic gold standard in 1933.

Marc Pachter of the National Museum of American History said that “The U.S. Gold Double Eagle Coin proved to be the symbol of struggle in Global Economy”, as quoted by Bronrich. The coin got sold for $7.59 million in an auction.

3. Rare Edward III

Price: $6.80 Million

The Edward III double florin is claimed to be the 3rd most expensive coin in the world. Its inscription consisted of a king seated holding the globe and scepter, with two leopards beside him and a canopy overhead which clearly showed Edward III, the king of England. It was auctioned for £460,000 (approx: $6.80 million) at the Spink auction house. The coin was in circulation from 1343 to 1344, as this was considered overvalued, because its face value was more than the value of gold.
