1804 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. Class I Original. Proof-65 (PCGS). Ex Stickney-Eliasberg.: Est Value $3 million and up.



SANTA ANA, CA.- Stack’s Bowers Galleries will present the spectacular collection built by Utah businessman and Utah Jazz owner Larry H. Miller across two sales to be held in November and December 2020.

Assembled quietly over many decades, the Larry H. Miller Collection comprises an astounding array of rarities that are found only in the most legendary cabinets in U.S. numismatics. Now being offered publicly for the first time by Stack’s Bowers Galleries, the Miller Collection is sure to join the ranks of such revered names as Garrett, Norweb, Eliasberg, Pogue, and other luminaries.

Highlights from the Larry H. Miller Collection include such rarities such as:

• 1804 Draped Bust Silver Dollar. Class I Original. Proof-65 (PCGS). Ex Stickney-Eliasberg.: Est Value $3 million and up

• 1894-S Barber Dime. Proof-65 (NGC) CAC. Ex Eliasberg.: Est value $1.25 million and up

• 1794 Flowing Hair Silver Dollar. MS-62 (NGC). Ex Willing-Flannagan.: Est value $1 million and up




• 1884-S Morgan Silver Dollar. MS-68 (PCGS) CAC. Ex Jack Lee. The Finest Known.: Est value $1 million and up

• 1849 Mormon $10. AU-53 (PCGS) CAC. Ex Newcomer-Carter.: Est value $500,000 and up

Accompanying these world-class rarities is a complete set of circulation-strike Morgan silver dollars that rivals the very finest ever assembled. The set showcases an incredible proportion of condition census examples, many with provenance to the famous sets assembled by Louis Eliasberg and Jack Lee.

Comprising nearly 1,600 coins, the Larry H. Miller Collection will be presented in two separate sales scheduled for November 12 and December 17. The earlier offering will be featured as part of the Stack’s Bowers Galleries November 2020 Showcase Auction, while the second selection will be presented in a December 2020 Showcase Auction, newly added to the firm’s auction schedule. Printed catalogs will be produced for each offering and are sure to become treasured references for generations of future collectors. The Stack’s Bowers Galleries sale of the Larry H. Miller Collection will attract advanced collectors across all categories of U.S. numismatics and will be among the most significant numismatic happenings of 2020.

Larry H. Miller was an entrepreneur and philanthropist most famous as the owner of the National Basketball Association’s Utah Jazz from 1985 up to his death in 2009. He also founded the Megaplex chain of movie theaters and owned over 60 car dealerships throughout the Western United States, among many other successful ventures. A lifelong resident of Salt Lake City and a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, he grew his business empire over 30 years with the help of his wife, Gail. Born into a modest middle-class family, Larry’s story of self-made success embodies the very essence of the American Dream.

By the time Larry passed away in 2009, he had created one of the finest collections known. He instructed his wife to sell the coins at his passing but knowing how much they meant to him, she could not bear to part with them. However, after eleven years, she decided it was time to do something else with the value invested in the collection, and that is what precipitated the sale of this collection. Whatever value is realized from Larry’s coins will be donated to Intermountain Health to build one of the finest Children’s Hospitals west of the Mississippi in Lehi, Utah. Larry would agree with this decision--blessing lives was, is and will continue to be the legacy of Larry and Gail Miller.
