A scalable way of doing this without the need to save individual
coefficients uses Mata (and Ben Jann's -moremata- package, SSC).

/******************************************/
clear*
sysuse auto, clear
constraint 1 price = weight
constraint 2 displacement = weight
constraint 3 gear_ratio = -foreign
constraint 4 _cons = 0

forv i=1/4 {
cnsreg mpg price weight displacement gear_ratio foreign length, c(`i')
mat mBeta = (nullmat(mBeta) , e(b)')
}
mat list mBeta

// max and min
mata: st_matrix("vBetaMax", rowmax(st_matrix("mBeta")))
mata: st_matrix("vBetaMin", rowmin(st_matrix("mBeta")))
mat list vBetaMax
mat list vBetaMin

// median (needs Ben Jann's -moremata-, SSC)
mata mata mlib index
mata: st_matrix("vBetaMed", mm_quantile(st_matrix("mBeta")', 1, .5 )')
mat list vBetaMed
