Online Coin Auctioneering:
for dealers, estate and eBay sellers
Online Coin Auctioneering is intended for eBayers who sell coins and for estate auctioneers considering or already selling on a portal such as AuctionZip, iCollector or Proxibid. Much of the advice also pertains to online coin dealer auctions. Selling coins online is complex, but knowing the basics will get you started in a rewarding hobby or side business. Moreover, online selling is safer than vending at a local antiques mall or coin show where you can lose your entire inventory from theft or other calamity. Better still, you can sell online from the privacy of your home and enjoy the process of contributing to the world’s greatest hobby.
Basic Coin Design
Michael Bugeja, columnist for Coin World and reporter for Coin Update News, shares results of a comprehensive study of all U.S. Mint circulating coinage, identifying the placement and artistic effect of dates, denominations, legends, mottoes, symbols and other devices. The result is a startlingly helpful analysis of basic design questions, such as “How to Tell Heads from Tails” (difficult on some coins) or “Why the Morgan dollar is the most popular collected coin.” The book has two sections, one devoted to the study and the other a detailed discussion of basic design elements, such as the privy mark or the three-sided canvas of a coin (obverse, reverse, edge). Learn coin design from a top numismatic writer and enjoy the hobby of collecting from an entirely different and enlightened perspective.
