SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The celebrated coin collection of late Utah Jazz owner Larry H. Miller sold for nearly $24 million dollars according to auction house Stack’s Bower Galleries.

The auction happed in two different sales. The first auction last month realized $9,057,072 and the second auction Thursday brought in $14, 579,302, a news release from the Stack’s Bower Galleries said.

Miller gathered the coins over several decades and “included an astounding array of rarities that are found in only the most legendary cabinets in U. S. numismatics,” the release said.

The entire collection included nearly 1,600 coins. It was special to Miller and he asked his wife, Gail, to sell the coins at his passing, an earlier news release said.
