Consigning to our auctions is an easy process. Pack your collection of coins, currency, and jewelry, create a list and send it to us in Great Falls, VA. We will create an itemized Consignment Order with detailed descriptions, price estimates, and starting prices and mail it back to you. We will then slot your items into our upcoming auctions to deliver a good selection to the bidders and ensure there are no duplicates in the same auction.
Send your coins, currency, and jewelry to: Penny Pincher Auctions, 1144-D Walker Rd., Great Falls, VA 22066
We'll send you a confirmation when your consignment arrives. Then, sit back and cash checks. We do all the work.
Items: We accept all United States, world, and ancient coins and currency. Low value items may be combined into a lot or returned to the consignor at our discretion. We reserve the right to decline consignments of items for any reason.
Starting Bids: We generally start coins and currency at 50% of the retail estimate. Jewelry, a little less than that. In the event the item does not sell in the first two auctions, we may gradually reduce the starting price. Some auction formats are with reserve and a $2 starting price. The reserve is generally set at the same level of the starting price above.
Listing & Seller's Fees:
- Certified (PCGS, NGC, ANACS, PMG) Coins & Currency over $500, $5 listing fee. No Seller's Fee.
- Raw U.S. coins and currency, any value, $5 listing fee, 20% Seller's Fee.
- World coins and currency (that are not certified and over $500), $10 Listing Fee, 20% Seller's Fee.
- Jewelry, Watches, and all other collectibles, $10 Listing Fee, 20% Seller's Fee.
- All fees are deducted from sale proceeds.
Scheduling: All of our auctions are specific events on specific days focusing on a certain range of coins or currency in order to direct collectors’ interest to that auction. We will put your items in auctions that have similar product focus.
Our Promise: We will not auction two of the same coin or currency in the same grade in the same auction. We try to only have one of each item regardless of grade in an auction. If we do auction two or more items that are the same, there must be a two point grade differential. For example, an 1881-S Morgan Dollar in MS-63 and MS-65 could be in the same auction, but we try to avoid it.
Third Party Grading: If you have a serious collection of raw coins or currency, we can submit the items directly to PCGS, NGC and PMG for grading before they go to auction. Fees vary.
Payment: Checks are mailed within 30 days of receipt of good payment from the winning bidder. In the event an item sells, but the buyer does not pay, we will re-auction the item with no charge to you.
