How to Sell Your Coin Collection

Updated: May 6

Are you looking to sell your coin collection but don't know where to start? At Coughlin's Auctions, we make selling coins and bullion at auction easy and hassle-free. Here are the steps you can take to sell your coin and bullion with us:

1. Prepare Your Collection The first step in selling your coin collection at auction is to prepare it for sale. This primarily includes gathering up all of the coins you wish for us to sell. Going through your collection to see if there are any coins you want to keep. It’s helpful for us if they are stored or organized in a way that makes it easy to catalog in a way that makes since to the bidders. We can help you with this.

2. Research Prices Before submitting your collection for auction, it's important to research prices to get an idea of what your coins and bullion are worth. At auction, the market sets the price, but it’s good for you to have a good idea of what your coin collection is worth. You can use online price guides or consult with a professional coin appraiser to get an estimate of the value of your collection. This will help you set realistic expectations for what you can expect to earn at auction. We can also help give you a rough value of what your coin and bullion collection is worth

3. Submit Your Collection for Auction After you've prepared your collection for auction, you can submit it to us. We accept all types of coin collections, big or small. Once we have your collection, we'll start working to catalog your collection. This includes taking professional photos, adding eye catching titles and descriptions, and appropriately storing them until they are sold at auction.

4. Attend the Auction Once your collection is up for auction, we have a dedicated marketing team that gets major collectors from all over the country to look at your coin collection. You can also attend the online auction yourself to see how they are doing. We'll provide all the necessary information on how to bid and keep you updated on the progress of the auction. When your collection sells, we'll handle the payment and delivery to the buyer.

In conclusion, at Coughlin's Auctions, we make selling coins at auction easy and hassle-free. By following these steps, you can ensure that your coins are presented in the best possible light and that you get the most out of your auction experience. Whether you're a seasoned collector or just starting out, auctions can be an exciting way to share your love of comics with others while also making a profit.
