Some of the many differences between GreatCollections and eBay
GreatCollections vs eBay
You have a choice where to buy and sell coins. From a full service auction house like GreatCollections, eBay, coin shows, local dealers…the list goes on. At GreatCollections, we stand behind every coin we sell. We have physical possession of every coin, we inspect every coin and we ship fast. Your personal information is never shared between buyer and sell - since the complete transaction is with GreatCollections.

One of our company philosophies is to offer coins of all prices and without any minimum to the consignor. Our belief is that collectors need a venue they trust to buy and sell coins of all prices, from famous rarities like this $80,000 Panama Pacific Commemorative, just as much as this $45 Morgan Dollar. We are committed to servicing the needs of all aspects of the coin market.

  • GreatCollections offers a wide selection of certified coins graded by PCGS, NGC and ANACS.
