CHESS LEGEND BOBBY FISHER'S GOLD COINS SOLD

Len Augsberger sent this article: "In a lengthy interview with
Morgunbladid, Reykjavik, last Saturday July 29th, chess legend and
world champion Bobby Fischer revealed that he has been in a long
and difficult dispute with the Union Bank of Switzerland... "

"The UBS even liquidated all of Fischer's gold coins, from his
match with Boris Spassky in Sveti Stefan in 1992, and other
investments, without his prior approval at a time when the rate
for gold was very unfavorable."

[Do any of our chess fans know the story behind the coins?  Were
the match participants paid in gold bullion?  Were they ordinary
gold coins or commemoratives related to the match?-Editor]
