GreatCollections Coin & Currency Auctions

The Fastest Growing Coin Auction House in the United States. Over $400 million sold, over 900,000 certified coins and currency auctioned.

GreatCollections was founded in 2010 by Ian Russell and Raeleen Endo to improve how coins and paper money are sold at auction. While there are many places to buy and sell coins and paper money, very few ensure that the transaction is conducted in a safe and secure manner while keeping both parties confidential.

GreatCollections offers collectors, dealers and professionals an extensive selection of certified coins and paper money ranging in price from $25 up to over $100,000 certified by the leading third-party grading companies including PCGS, NGC, PMG and ANACS. GreatCollections is also the leading auction house of CAC approved coins. All coins and currency have been professionally listed, reviewed and imaged by GreatCollections expert staff. 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.

Since 2010, GreatCollections has successfully auctioned over 900,000 certified coins, graded by PCGS, NGC or ANACS, making it one of the leading certified coin companies in the United States. In addition to certified coins, GreatCollections also auctions certified paper money by PMG and PCGS. Our results are constantly reported by the numismatic community and our complete auction archive is available free of charge as a research tool for coin values.

The owner of GreatCollections, Ian Russell, is member 785 of the Professional Numismatists Guild, and was named to CoinWorld Magazine's Most Influential People in Numismatics from 1960-2020. To read CoinWorld's profile on Ian Russell, click here.
