Welcome to NumisBids, your online portal for coin auctions.
NumisBids was created to serve the needs of collectors. Its mission is to help collectors find coins that interest them in auctions offered by the world's top numismatic dealers.
We're independent. NumisBids is a neutral platform and is not owned or managed by any auction firm.
Privacy and security are priorities for us. We safeguard the information you give us, collecting only what is required to enhance your experience on the site. Any bids submitted through NumisBids are transferred securely and reliably to the auction houses. Your personal information is not shared with any dealer other than the firms you choose to deal with.
We make it easy and convenient to browse upcoming auctions and bid on coins that interest you.
The site was designed for the collector, with a clean, easy to understand layout and features to help you enjoy and learn more about your hobby.
We offer a powerful Want List system, which allows you to search for coins and notifies you when matching lots appear on NumisBids.
We specialize in advertising auctions from reputable dealers of ancient and world coins and medals. Our coverage includes:
Printed auction catalogs: These are auctions that are published as hard-copy catalogs and mailed to clients. They typically contain the highest quality coins and are conducted in a live session. NumisBids offers you a way to view and bid in many of these catalogs online in an easy to use and consistent format. For printed auctions that are hosted on NumisBids, we will deliver your bids to the auction houses.
If you see the icon next to an auction, this means that you can participate in the auction live on the Internet during this sale. Click on the icon and then follow the link for Live Online Bidding to find out more. Please note that NumisBids does not perform this service; we only send you to the live bidding provider.
E-auctions: These are online sales that allow you to participate in a virtual auction. They normally feature a selection of lower-cost coins and are arranged similarly to printed catalogs. To particpate in these auctions, you will usually need to register and bid at the Web site of the coin dealer conducting the auction -- just follow the link from NumisBids.
Daily auctions: These auctions are similar to the e-auctions, but they run continuously, with new coins being offered on a daily basis. Most of these auctions are conducted on a dedicated platform such as eBay.
