About GreatCollections Certified Coin & Currency Auctions

GreatCollections was founded by Ian Russell and Raeleen Endo to improve how coins and paper money are sold at auction. While there are many places to buy and sell coins and paper money, very few ensure that the transaction is conducted in a safe and secure manner while keeping both parties confidential. Since 2010, GreatCollections has auctioned over 950,000 certified coins and paper money totaling over $500 million.

GreatCollections offers collectors, dealers and professionals an extensive selection of certified coins and paper money ranging in price from $25 up to over $100,000 certified by the leading third-party grading companies including PCGS, NGC, PMG and ANACS. GreatCollections is also the leading auction house of CAC approved coins. All coins and currency have been professionally listed, reviewed and imaged by GreatCollections expert staff.
