Heritage Auctions has announced that it is expanding its World Coins category to include Weekly Internet-Only Auctions at HA.com/WorldCoins, ending its practice of Monthly Internet World Coin Auctions.
"The growth of the World Coins category at Heritage has been tremendous in the last five years here at Heritage," said Cristiano Bierrenbach, Executive Vice President of Heritage Auctions, "turning into one of the company’s most popular and fastest expanding areas.
In keeping with the demand from collectors, and the continued influx of great consignments, we’re adding these Weekly auctions; they’re a natural outgrowth of ever-increasing popularity of World Coins."
The first world coin auction will start on Thursday, July 5, at 10 pm CT, continuing through the following Thursday, July 12. The next week’s auction will commence immediately after the previous sale closes.
"Collectors of Ancients will also be quite interested to see what we’ll be offering from week to week," said David Michaels, Director of World Coins at Heritage.
"This will be a golden opportunity for collectors to fill out some of their sets as well as for more beginning collectors to begin seeing where their interests lie."
Collectors will have a chance to bid on a wide variety of World and Ancient coins from all corners of the planet. All lots will start at $1.
