DALLAS, TX — Heritage Auction Galleries, the world’s leading numismatic auctioneer, has created a new online auction venue for World Coin buyers with its new Monthly Internet-only World Coin Auctions. The first installment of this new venture is currently online at www.HA.com/WorldCoins, closing on July 12. The next auction will start the same day, July 12, immediately following the closing of the previous auction.
"The format of the auctions is quite simple," said Cristiano Bierrenbach, Director of International Sales at Heritage. "They will stay up for four weeks, will have an average of 500-600 certified lots, all unreserved and all starting at $1."
As the undisputed industry leader in World Coins, Heritage is starting its monthly world coin Internet auctions as both a compliment to its weekly U.S. Rare Coin Internet-only auctions as well as to serve the world coin collecting audience devoted to coins that fall in the price range below that of most of the company’s more high profile auctions.
"There’s a consistent and committed audience for world coins that is only looking to spend anywhere from $30 to $300 and up," said Bierrenbach. "We heard the demands of collectors and now present to them our monthly world coin Internet-only auctions."
Buyers of rare world coins will now have a reason to visit the Heritage world coins auction home page more than just during the company’s Signature auction offerings. With a monthly selection of rare world coins — featuring the variety and pricing that Heritage is known for — collectors will have a reason to check in with Heritage on a regular basis. This allows them some excellent buys on fine and rare world coins as well as a first look at any catalog offerings that will be coming up.
"We’re excited to provide this opportunity to collectors," said Bierrenbach. "They love fine world coins the way that we do here at Heritage, so we know what a regular buying occasion can do for them, and for their collections."
