Announcement: Sunday & Tuesday Internet Coin Auctions and Weekly World and Ancient Coin Auctions move to Heritage Live!

Our Weekly Internet Coin Auctions and World and Ancient Coin Auctions are closing with live, online auctions on HA.com's Heritage Live! platform beginning with the Internet Coin Auction that ends Sunday, September 21st and the World and Ancient Coin Auction that ends on Thursday, September 25th. Each lot is offered one at a time, in lot number order, in live auctions beginning at 8:00 PM CT. During this part of the auction, live bidders will be on Heritage Live! competing with each other and with previously placed Internet bids. The lot opens, requests live bids, and then closes when the bidding is finished. There is no change in how you place your secret maximum bids during the week the auctions are open on HA.com. In addition, once bidding on HA.com ends, 2 hours before the live sessions start, you still have the option to leave proxy bids through Heritage Live!

How To Pack and Ship Your Coins

How to pack and ship your coins
Registered Mail:
This is one of the most secure methods of shipping your coins. With this service you can purchase up to $25,000 worth of insurance. As with any form of shipping there are a few guidelines we recommend you follow.

Here is a step by step guide to sending coins by Registered Mail.
  1. Securely pack your coins inside the box. Make sure your coins cannot move around. Remember that the package can encounter very rough treatment during shipping. The more packaging material between the coins and box the better.

  2. Place this box inside of another box. Once again use plenty of packaging material (bubble wrap, packing peanuts). You want the box to be completely surrounded by the packing material you use.

  3. Per USPS guidelines you must cover every seam on the box with craft paper tape. We recommend the fiberglass reinforced paper tape. You cannot use regular plastic tape.

  4. Address the package and affix the proper labels from the post office. Label the package in a manner that does not indicate that there is value inside. Do not use words such as "gold", "silver", "rare coins", or " numismatics".

  5. Take the package to the post office and get the forms for registered mail. Purchase enough insurance to cover the value of your shipment. You can insure a shipment worth up to $25,000. If your package is worth more than that you must send multiple packages.

  6. The window clerk will give you a receipt for the package. This receipt should have a round stamp which details when the package was accepted and which station accepted it. If something happens to the package this information is VERY important.


Registered mail usually takes 2-5 business days.
