Heritage Auctions announced that their total auction sales for 2022 exceeded their 2021 sales, setting a new auction sales record for the company.

In 2022, Heritage logged $1.45 billion in auction sales. This eclipses the $1.4 billion in sales reported in 2021 by Heritage (see "Billion-Dollar Sales Mark in 2021"). They also reported shattering records in over 50 categories, with one of the biggest ticket items being Russian journalist Dmitry Muratov's Nobel Peace Prize medal, which sold for $103.5 million, all of which went directly to UNICEF to aid refugees impacted by the war in Ukraine.
