We are living in unprecedented times.
At GreatCollections, we're prepared for all situations and we continue business as usual with our auctions taking place each week. Our team has already taken precautions to limit exposure by avoiding crowds and we have always strictly limited those who visit our office.
In reviewing our auctions this past Sunday - every important statistic was extremely strong - # of bidders and website traffic overall was up and our internal pre-auction estimate of sales was exceeded by 12%.
There has been significant interest from new customers to buy physical gold and silver. Premiums have been increasing on silver eagles, gold eagles and even platinum, as well as Pre-1933 U.S. gold that we offer regularly in our auctions. Other new and existing clients have been selling their stocks and buying hard assets - rare coins, as well as semi-bullion issues.
Our auctions over the next few weeks includes some amazing highlights. This week, the Fields Collection of Half Eagles graded by NGC is being auctioned and we just listed an extremely rare 1879 $4 Gold Stella graded NGC Proof-65+ UC with CAC approval. These are just a few coins out of the thousands of certified coins we list every week in our auctions.
Over the past 10 years, GreatCollections has become a company of financial security and dependability with well over $300 million in sales. We've received and successfully auctioned over 52,000 consignments during that time, totaling more than 700,000 certified coins and paper money. We rarely talk about our accomplishments (we're shy), but in these times, it's now appropriate.
If you are considering selling your collection, please call us at 1-800-442-6467. We are ready to help and offer generous cash advances. We're currently filling our April and May auctions. Take advantage of selling your coins in the most active weekly coin auctions.
We appreciate your business and support.
