Recovery of six coins worth $18,844 stolen June 11 or June 12 was announced July 6 by the American Numismatic Association.

The coins were taken from a traveling ANA exhibit on loan to the St. Louis Museum of Transportation.

Most of the value resided in a single coin, an MS-60 1862 $5 gold piece worth $15,000. It was part of a four-panel exhibit called “Money of the Civil War.”

Its loss prompted the ANA to review the value of the coins in all 10 of its traveling exhibits with an eye toward replacing high valued coins with examples worth less than $3,000.

The St. Louis County Police Department made the recovery and ANA Executive Director Larry Shepherd said he will ask the police to press charges against the person or persons responsible for the theft.
