Times Flies - Our Anniversary!

Even though we spent a lot of time in late 2010 and early 2011 working on GreatCollections, we only formally launched our auctions 12 months ago today.  Of course, GreatCollections sales and results are exceeding our most optimistic expectations and we have to thank every member for that.  Without you, we would not be here doing what we love and also what our clients enjoy…so for that Raeleen and I are extremely thankful.

GreatCollections highlights:

# of Listings Increasing:
  Surpassed 2,000 Listings
  Surpassed 3,000 Listings
  Surpassed 4,000 Listings
  and just today, we surpassed 5,000 Listings (April 2, 2012)

Record Sales
  Single day of sales exceeded $505,000 (March 18, 2012)

Record Coin Auction
  1907 High Relief NGC MS-67 sold for $110,000 (March 18, 2012)
(Check out our other Record Coin Prices)

First Notable Coin Auction
  Newly-discovered 1842-O Eagle PCGS MS-60 sold for $57,970 (June 26, 2012)

Don't worry, despite the above milestones, we will continue to work on
growing GreatCollections, offering the safest and cheapest place to
buy and sell certified coins online.

Again, we are grateful for your support, and look forward to providing
an even higher level of service in the future.
