This Bored Ape And Its Corresponding Mutants Sold At Christie's For $1.3 Million
Christie’s sold a rare bored ape and its matching M1 and M2 mutants today, for over 1.3 million dollars.
Bored Ape #4418 and the primates corresponding M1 and M2 Mutants (18836 and 18837) were featured in Christie’s “20th/21st Century: Evening Sale Including Thinking Italian, London” live auction. This was the second time that a bored ape was sold at the historic auction house.
Bored Ape #4418 is a four trait brown fur ape with a bored unshaven cigarette mouth and laser eyes. Based on these traits, Bored Ape #4418 is the 35th most rare ape, according to Rarity Tools.
The three apes sold for 982,500 GBP or 1,345,432 USD or 348.46 Eth. This was in line with Christie’s expected sale price.
“APES TOGETHER STRONG,” Christie’s Head of Digital Art, Noah Davis, tweeted after the auction. “Thank you @ptmNFT for your trust and congrats on placing your trio with a happy new collector.”
After the sale, BAYC member and previous owner of Bored Ape #4418, PTM, took to Twitter to thank Davis and Christie’s for the work he put into the auction.
“Thank you for your hard work for the community always @NonfungibleNoah, he tweeted. “It’s a good day #apestogetherstrong.”
Based on the results of today’s auction, it appears that apes with their corresponding M1 and M2 mutants will be a desirable set.
“Apes + their M1 and M2 mutants will be very lucrative bundles in the future," BAYC member Paper Ape previously tweeted. “If you got em all, diamond hand that shit.”
The current price for an M1 and M2 mutant serum is 3.55 Eth and 7.249 Eth, according to Opensea. There are only 2,700 M1 serums and 1,100 M2 serums left in existence.
