This Week's GC Top Ten List - Bidding Ends Sunday, July 4, 2021

Ian Russell on Mon, Jun 28, 2021 06:00:48 AM

Bidding Ends on Independence Day!

Welcome to the first GC Top Ten List, which we intend to publish each Monday morning.  This is not just a list of the most expensive coins ending for the week - we're hand-picking ten coins (or banknotes) that are interesting or noteworthy for a variety of reasons.


Although, these ten auctions may pique your interest, this is only a tiny percentage of the whole auction.  Each week, GreatCollections auctions over 3,000 certified coins and banknotes!  So, if you don't see anything of interest below, be sure to browse our categories or view all upcoming auctions.


Happy collecting!
