Amadeus Collection, Stella, No Increase

After our auctions last night, I stopped for a moment to think about the year that has passed and where we will be this time next year. In 2012, our sales doubled, our listings tripled - both far exceeding even our most optimistic projections. In 2013, we are expecting more growth as a company, helped by a healthy coin market and strong bullion prices. I wanted to add a few pieces of news specifically about GreatCollections: The Amadeus Collection
I am pleased to announce that we will be auctioning the Amadeus Collection of U.S. Gold coins. The significant collection contains more than 1,000 U.S. Gold coins and includes rarities such as 1907 High Reliefs, a unique $3 pattern and a complete Charlotte Gold collection. The collection is being offered in a series of unreserved auctions starting late January. $4 Stella
One special highlight we are offering unreserved is a $4 Stella, graded PCGS Proof-64 CAMEO and verified by CAC. The coin is currently bid at $136,000 and is setting the new record for a single coin auction at GreatCollections. Bidding ends Sunday! The FUN Show in Orlando
Next week, I'll be attending the FUN show, which is one of the biggest shows of the year. Our table is 829. If you're attending the show, please stop by and say hello. Our Buyer's Fees
We've been asked a lot over the past few days whether we are increasing our buyer's fees. The answer is a big "NO". At 10%, our buyer's fees are the lowest in the industry and we have no plans to change this.
We appreciate everyone's support over the past year - we couldn't be doing this without you!
Wishing you and yours a healthy and prosperous New Year.
Ian Russell, Raeleen Endo and the GreatCollections Team
