LONG BEACH, CA.- A $10 million exhibit of rare, historic French coins, described as the best and most comprehensive ever displayed in the United States, will be on public view in Long Beach, California, September 5-7, 2019.

Entitled “Tyrants of the Seine,” the nearly 400 coins in the exhibit are a small portion of the extensive Tyrant Collection, the world’s most valuable rare coin collection in private hands. The display will be publicly shown at the Long Beach Coin, Currency, Stamp & Sports Collectible Expo.

“This exhibit will have coins dating from 59 B.C. with the invading French tribes after the fall of Rome in 476 A.D. up to modern coinage shortly before World War II. I can’t recall ever seeing a better exhibit of French coins outside of France,” stated Ira Goldberg President of Goldberg Coins and Collectibles, Inc. in Los Angeles, California.

“This impressive exhibit of many of the finest known rare French coins will be insured for $10 million for the display,” added Goldberg who is one of the numismatic professionals providing guidance in assembling the wide-ranging Tyrant Collection of superb quality, historic U.S. and world coins for its anonymous owner.

Exhibit highlights include:

· One of the first coins struck in Northern Gaul in what is now France. It is made of gold and hand-struck between 100 and 50 B.C. by the ancient Parissi tribe. Paris is named after that tribe.

· A specially made 20 Francs gold coin depicting Napoleon Bonaparte that was struck in 1815 during the brief “Hundred Days” period when he returned to France from exile.

‘The owner of The Tyrant Collection, including these rare French coins, wants to remain anonymous while he shares portions of the extensive collection with the public for the coins’ educational and historic value,” explained Goldberg.

Visitors to the September 2019 Long Beach Expo exhibit (booth #807) can receive a free, illustrated educational booklet about this latest, amazing display.

The Long Beach Expo will be held in the Long Beach, California Convention Center at 100 S. Pine Ave. Public hours are Thursday and Friday, September 5 and 6, from 10 am to 7 pm, and Saturday, September 7, from 10 am to 5 pm.
