The centerpiece of the auction is a 1536-38MM Mexico 8 Reales from the Isaac Rudman Collection, graded NGC AU 50. This is one of three known specimens of the first crown-sized coins struck in the New World, at the newly opened Mexico City Mint. Its estimate is $500,000 to $800,000, which means it could set a record for highest price realized for a world coin at a Heritage auction.
