“The growth of the World Coins category at Heritage has been tremendous in the last five years here at Heritage,” said Cristiano Bierrenbach, Executive Vice President of Heritage Auctions, “turning into one of the company’s most popular and fastest expanding areas. In keeping with the demand from collectors, and the continued influx of great consignments, we’re adding these Weekly auctions; they’re a natural outgrowth of ever-increasing popularity of World Coins.”

Collectors will have a chance to bid on a wide variety of World and Ancient coins from all corners of the planet. All lots will start at $1.

“Collectors of Ancients will also be quite interested to see what we’ll be offering from week to week,” said David Michaels, Director of World Coins at Heritage. “This will be a golden opportunity for collectors to fill out some of their sets as well as for more beginning collectors to begin seeing where their interests lie.”

Heritage Auctions is the largest auction house founded in the United States, and the world’s third largest, with annual sales of more than $800 million, and in excess of 700,000 online bidder members.
