Rare coin set to fetch millions of dollars

A one of a kind 18th century gold coin bearing the likeness of the first US President, George Washington, is going to auction.

The coin is expected to fetch more than $NZ1.4 million when it goes up for auction in August.

The 1792 Washington President gold eagle coin was never circulated as money.  Currency researchers believe that the Washington President coin was given to him as part of a sales promotion and that he  carried it as a personal memento.

Washington refused to have himself depicted on coins, considering the notion “monarchical.”

The August auction will be the first time the Washington President coin has come to public sale in 128 years.
