Frequently Asked Questions about ConsigningWhat fees do you charge?
GreatCollections has a simple fee structure. Low listings fees, and seller's fees between 0% and 5% depending on the value of the item sold. All fees are clearly disclosed on our Consignment Form or in our online Knowledge Base.
How fast are coins placed into auction?
Porsche-fast. We routinely place certified coins into auction within a few days of arriving at GreatCollections. We also keep you up-to-date along the way, with notifications when coins list live on our website and also when they sell.
Do you advance money against consignments?
Yes, we advance up to half of their value. Please note this on the Consignment Form and we will contact you the day your coins arrive to arrange the advance. In most cases, advance checks can be overnighted within 24 hours. While we usually only advance money on certified coins, we will make special exceptions on raw coin consignments.
Can I set reserves or minimum bids?
Yes, instead of reserves, GreatCollections uses a Minimum Bid system, which is detailed on our Consignment Forms.
How do I ship coins to GreatCollections?
We recommend shipping coins through the United States Postal Service via Registered Insured Mail or Priority Insured Mail. This is the safest way to transport coins. If you have coins worth more than $25,000 to sell, please contact us for special instructions. We will notify you the day your coins arrive.
Are my coins insured?
Yes, from the moment your coin(s) arrive at GreatCollections, they are fully insured through our extensive policy with Lloyd's of London. A copy of our insurance certificate is available by request.
When can I expect payment?
While our terms and conditions state that all consignors will be paid within 30 days, we routinely pay our consignors early (usually within 7-14 days). GreatCollections can also give you an instant cash advance of up to half of their value (for certified coins). For more information about cash advances, please call Ian Russell at 1.800.44.COINS (+1.949.679.4180) or e-mail [email protected].
What happens if my coins don't sell?
Our sell-through rate is very high at GreatCollections. In the unlikely event your coins do not sell, we will reoffer them in another auction. If they remain unsold, we will return them to you at our expense and invoice you for the grading fees.
About GreatCollectionsGreatCollections was founded by Ian Russell as a marketplace to serve the rare coin and bullion community. Though there are many places to buy and sell coins, very few ensure that the transaction is conducted in a safe and secure manner while keeping both parties confidential.
GreatCollections offers collectors an extensive selection of certified coins ranging in price from $25 up to $10,000s. All coins have been professionally listed and imaged by GreatCollections expert staff and most are certified by the leading third-party grading companies. Since GreatCollections has possession of all items being offered for sale, GreatCollections will ship your auction winnings and purchases to you securely and promptly. Sellers consign to GreatCollections to take advantage of our low commission rates, which work out in most cases to be cheaper than if they did all the work themselves.
