Family of Auctions

View Currency Auctions

Heritage Auctions offer collectors, investors and dealers a wide range of choices for selling their valuable holdings. Heritage regularly offers several different auction options for collectibles. These auctions feature our award-winning Interactive Internet™ eCommerce auction software to maximize bidding interest and prices realized. Consistent interface and passwords are used throughout the Heritage family of auctions so any bidder who has participated in one type of auction may easily participate successfully in all of them.

Your personal Consignment Director will help you determine the best auction for your items. Below is a quick introduction to each auction venue.


Signature®, Grand Format, Catalog and Platinum Night® Auctions

Signature, Grand Format, Catalog and Platinum Night Auctions may be held in Heritage's main galleries in Dallas, but usually occur in other cities, often in conjunction with major conventions or collector events. Items in the auction include photography and detailed descriptions, all of which are posted online at HA.com along with vast additional information not available in the printed catalog and designed to help bidders make educated purchasing decisions while saving them time. These auctions are offered online as well as through a printed catalog, with bids accepted via telephone, fax, Internet, mail, and live during auction event.

Heritage Live®:After Internet bidding closes, live bidding will take place through www.HA.com/Live. Your secret maximum bid placed prior to the live event will compete against the live bids. To maximize your chances of winning, enter realistic secret maximum bids on our site. Many of our proxy bidders are successful at winning lots in these auctions, and usually below their secret maximum. You can also place last minute bids directly with us by e-mailing Bid@HA.com or calling 1-866-835-3243. (Important note: Due to software and Internet latency, live bids may not register in time, so enter realistic proxy bids.)

Slightly different bidding rules apply to the different session types:

  • Signature Floor Session (Live Floor, Live Phone, Mail, Fax, Internet, and Heritage Live)
    Proxy bidding ends one hour prior to the session start time. Live Proxy bidding on Heritage Live starts 24 hours before the live session begins and continues through the session. During the live auction event, bidding in person is encouraged, and Heritage Live includes streaming audio and often video during the event.
  • Signature Internet Session - No Floor or Phone Bidding (Mail, Fax, Internet, and Heritage Live)
    Proxy bidding ends one hour prior to the session start time. Live Proxy bidding on Heritage Live starts 24 hours before the live session begins and continues through the session.
