Report Sincona 19 (The SINCONA Collection - Part 3) in Russian Coin Forums Posted May 20, 2015 Guess the story and picture (and plastic) worked. Someone paid over $80,000 for the coin including commission. But they got an incomparable coin and a story with which to understand the rarity of its existence. Seems like small change compared to art auctions. A week ago a Picasso sold for $179,000,000.
