ANSWER: CHESS LEGEND BOBBY FISCHER'S GOLD COINS

Regarding my earlier question about gold coins given to
chess legend Bobby Fischer, it looks like the answer was
right in front of my nose all the time, something my wife
delights in telling me whenever I search for something in
the kitchen.  David Klinger writes: "It looks to me like
the gold in question is described in the original article
you cited:

 120 US $20 Liberty coins
 112 US $20 St. Gaudens coins, and
 191 ounces gold [bullion]

"Of course, some, or all, of these coins may not have
been a part of the prize paid to Fisher. But, given the
context of the correspondence they are likely the same
coins.

Here is all of the correspondence on this subject which
I could find.
Full Story "

[David also set me straight on the spelling of Fischer's
last name, which I've corrected here.  Sorry!  -Editor]
