HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY … Proxiblog Will Return Tuesday and is Sponsored By

Southwest Bullion and Coin


Check out the company’s May 27th coin auction on Proxibid!

One year ago Southwest Bullion and Coin rolled out one of the most competitive coin bidding platforms on Internet, featuring 0% buyer’s fee with flat-rate USPS shipping and APN clearance with no maximum-bid viewing or shill bidding. In the past year the Houston-based company has opened another onsite location in Oklahoma, honed its lot descriptions and sharpened its numismatic photography. It’s a combination that’s difficult to beat.

Auctioneer Justin Quinn inaugurated the new business model in May 2012 with this promise:

    We want our customers to feel comfortable buying from us with the knowledge that they will not be charged outrageous buyers fees, shipping fees, or other hidden fees on invoice after the auction. We also want our buyers to know that they can bid without having to calculate fees on every push of a bid button. We want to bring back the hobbyist and the collector who like attending auctions for the enjoyment with a fully transparent market.

Proxiblog patronizes Southwest Bullion and Coin because of its increasingly appealing consignments–no doubt in part due to having two onsite locations, in Houston and Edmond, Oklahoma.

In addition to setting standards on Proxibid, Southwest Bullion and Coin has introduced popular “mystery lots,” surprising bidders with slabbed coins and evoking the hobbyist in them.

In a recent Proxiblog article, Justin Quinn stated:

    “The idea of mystery lots has always intrigued me personally. I see them as a treasure hunt of sorts and a way to spark a particular interest. Coin collecting is an adventure to me, and I have found great enjoyment in finding surprise coins in a group of unsuspecting pieces.”

Southwest Bullion is actively buying precious metals including bars, wafers, and coins. The company also purchases all U.S. Mint products including gold, silver, and platinum American Eagles. It also buys all Royal Canadian Mint products including gold, silver, and platinum maple leafs as well as South African Krugerrands.”
