2470Most expensive coin sold at auction1933 double eagle7590020 US dollar(s)United States, New York city31 January 2002The most expensive coin in the world is the 1933 Double Eagle, a $20-gold coin which was auctioned at Sotheby's, New York, USA on 30 July 2002 and fetched $7,590,020 (£4,856,370) including buyer's premium.As reported in The New York Times 31/7/2002: 'In 1792 it was decided that all gold and silver United States coins would bear the depiction of an eagle, but gold pieces were issued only after the Gold Rush Boom, in 1850. They were called double eagles because their face value was twice that of the original $10 gold piece. Following the suggestion of President Theodore Roosevelt, the sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens redesigned the coin in 1907 in high-relief, forever after giving the coins the designation 'saints'. In 1933 President Franklin D. Roosevelt took the US off the gold standard, and ordered all 1933 saints already manufactured to be destroyed, save for two reserved for the Smithsonian Institution. They were never declared legal currency. Presumed stolen by a mint employee, nine double eagles surfaced in the 1940-50s. They were seized by the Secret Service and melted down. But before these coins came to light, the royal legation of Egypt turned up with one at the Department of the Treasury and somehow obtained an export license for the coin to enhance the collection of King Farouk. By the time the mistake was uncovered the coin had already left the country. After the king was deposed in 1954, his coins were sold at auction and the double eagle disappeared. It went underground until Stephen Fenton was arrested in Manhattan trying to sell the coin for $1.5 million. The double eagle was moved from the Treasury Department vault in 7 World Trade Centre eight months before September 11 attacks. The coin is the only 1933 double eagle ever to be legally issued by the US government. The coin was 'monetized' after the auction making it legal tender. The buyer will receive a certificate of transfer stating just that, only after paying the auction price and a fee of $20 for the face value of the coin.'
2471Longest carJay OhrbergUnited States, Burbank01 January 1900A 30.5 m (100 ft) long 26-wheeled limousine was designed by Jay Ohrberg of Burbank, California, USA. It has many features, including a swimming pool with diving board and a king-sized water bed. It is designed to drive as a rigid vehicle or it can be changed to bend in the middle. Its purpose was for use in films and displays.Stretch limousines, the favoured means of transport for Hollywood stars, are not produced by any of the major motor manufacturers, but are made by coach builders who modify standard luxury vehicles. Specifications and levels of luxury vary accordingly. In the United States, vehicles by luxury car manufacturer Lincoln hold the biggest share of the market, although other marques such as Cadillac and Mercedes are also popular. Cadillac has redesigned its new DeVille models with limo conversions in mind, creating a chassis that can handle a 3 m (10 ft) stretch conversion. Typical rental rates for limousines vary between around US$50 and US$200 per hour.

2481First known stigmataUnknown1224/09/14 year(s), month(s), day(s), Assis14 September 1224The earliest known stigmatic was St Francis of Assisi. On the 14 September 1224, it is said that he saw a fiery-winged seraph descending from heaven in the form of a crucified man, believed to be Jesus and there after began to develop bleeding wounds in his hands, feet and side that corresponded to the crucifixion wounds of Jesus. Such wounds, which seem to develop of their own accord and do not become sceptic, have been regularly documented and frequently affecting women, usually of the Catholic faith. The first non-Catholic stigmatic was Cloretta Robinson, who, unlike most stigmatics was Protestant. In 1972, aged 10, and just a week after reading a religious book dealing with the crucifiction of Jesus, she developed a bleeding stigma in her left palm, with four others intermittently appearing during the next 19 days.
