IRVINE, Calif. – Teletrade, America’s largest fully automated Internet auction company for certified coins and currency, will auction “The Kovach Collection of Period One & Two California Fractional Gold” on Sunday, June 22, 2008, in online Auction 2546.

Two coins from the "The Kovach Collection of Period One & Two California Fractional Gold"The auction will be live at www.teletrade.com from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. eastern time and will include more than 1,500 certified coin lots. The complete auction catalog will be viewable on the Teletrade website beginning Friday, June 13.

California Fractional Gold has a storied history complete with touches of controversy that only adds to the mystique. The tiny small denomination gold pieces were privately issued during the California Gold Rush economy, hand-struck mostly by entrepreneurial San Francisco jewelers, as a result of the Federal government’s unwillingness to issue sufficient small denomination coinage.

“The Kovach Collection” is listed as the “3rd Finest Set of All Time” on the PCGS Set Registry, retired in June 2007, and Teletrade will auction more than 75 coins from the set in individual lots. The collection represents Period One, struck 1852-1856, and Period Two, struck 1859-1882.
