Coins Auctions – Delight to Future Investment

Sunday, 02 October 2011

Coins AuctionsA good numismatic collection is worth a million US Dollar and even much higher. It depends on the volume and age of coins, though. When we talk about the holdings in coins of the historic value, then the collection can cost over several mln USD. So, when we hear about numismatic or coin auction, we refer to kinds of investment into future that can only gain. Sometimes very good coins are found at various auctions.

As the coin collectors say the coin auction is the most reliable and fast way to add some more valuable pieces to the holdings or sell the coins at the very high price. So, if the conventional sale of coins assumes potential reduction in price for whatever reason, the auction does have the opposite policy: the price of items put to auction increases instead and sometimes the rise is significant. So, the Kunker auction held in January 2010 in Berlin exhibited the coin of a ruble value from Ann of Russia epoch that was sold for four hundred ten thousand Euros estimated as the starts price of one hundred thousand Euros. Herewith, the upper margin of the auction price is not always known which is too pleasing for the sellers who deliver the items to the auctioneers. Second, such transactions minimize the risk of fraud. All the exhibited lots are thoroughly tested and evaluated to estimate the coins. At the same time those who put items to auction may be sure the coins are not going to be undervalued by experts since this is the policy of auction houses work unlike dealers and other shops that tend to minimize the cost of coins to get them cheaper. And finally, the date of auction is known beforehand to allow get arranged without waiting for the sale.

Most companies that arrange auctions comply with the certain regulations. First, all the lots have to be estimated and examined by the regular valuation committee except for some online auctions that restrict the picture of the lot to some particular dimensions.  The applications to put items to auctions are accepted at the specified date, so the deadline for applications may be two months before the auction is held. This is reasonable since the houses need time to arrange the auction and prepare copies of coin catalogs online to browse and email to subscribers on the catalog avail.

Some auction houses arrange coins exhibitions apart from the catalogues where all the coins to put to auction further are exposed for public access before going to the auction houses as lots. As for the payment for the facilitators, the amount ranges from ten to fifteen percent. Some auction houses specify the fee amount depending on the transaction total sum.  Another advantage is that auction facilitators ensure to return the coins in case they are not evaluated as authentic and the guarantee term is quite considerable to enjoy.

Most numismatists are the people of the medium social status with the restricted funds to afford acquiring any coin they would like. They are enthusiastic about their holdings. They may participate at online auctions and actual ones arranged by the most reputed auction houses in many countries. The auctions offer coins of not so high value affordable to most collectors, though. Quite valuable and unique coins are exhibited there sometimes.

People who are engaged in coin collection and beneficial investment into future wealth may enjoy most reputed European auctions as Christie's based in London. This auction house deals in selling works of art and antiques. However, the lots are really unique and fascinating there. So, in 2007 a coin of ten cents nominal value from 1792 was put to the Christie's for thirty million dollars. The coins made in Russia are very popular today among the world collectors. This is because they issued lots of various coins in Russia in limited edition for the testing purposes, as the well-known Konstantinovsky silver rouble. On the top of it, change of power affected the monetary policy. So, the abovementioned rouble belonging to Ivan Antonovich after the death of Ann of Russia was made in 1741. The revolution happened the same year and the country was headed by Elizaveta Petrovna, and most coins with the embossed picture of the young tsar were liquidated or over-died.

And still, participation in coins auction is the challenge for numismatists; this is the way to invest assets; this is so far fascinating thing, excitement and the desire to add more valuable, unique and rare coin to the private collection.
