Legend Coin Auctions Leverages HiBid.com For Professional Website & Consistently Successful Online Auctions

OCALA, Florida — November 27, 2017

New Jersey-based rare currency auctioneer Legend Coin Auctions (www.LegendAuctions.com), LLC has launched a new website through HiBid.com—the leader in internet bidding solutions and webcast bidding for live auctions. Legend Coin Auctions consistently hosts successful online-only and live webcast auctions through HiBid, including a recent sale that featured 119 rare collectible coins curated by its knowledgeable staff. The auction company will hold its final sale of the year on December 14th.

As the undisputed leading dealer of rare coins, Legend Coin Auctions offers a number of auction services. In addition to purchasing individual coins and collections outright, the company also offers consignment options for live and online auctions held throughout the year. “We hold five regency auctions and 12 premier session sales each year through HiBid.com,” explains Legend Coin Auctions’ Serena Myers. Regency auctions are boutique-style live sales that are simulcast through HiBid.com; they primarily feature high-value coins (between $5,000 and $10,000) from sellers that are PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service) members. Premier session sales, by contrast, are online-only auctions featuring fewer than 200 hand-selected, unreserved auction items. The ability to quickly and easily upload otherwise hyperlocal auctions to HiBid.com extends them to bidders (including enthusiasts, novice collectors, and professional numismatics) anywhere in the world.

Through Auction Flex (a full-service auction management software), Legend Coin Auctions is able to streamline and simplify the setup and management of every auction. This includes the ability to simulcast its live regency auctions for remote, online participants, and the ability to upload comprehensive auction catalogs to HiBid’s online bidding platform for both simulcast and online-only auctions in minutes. Each auction catalog is uploaded to HiBid.com ahead of the sale, providing the sale date and time, bidding information, location (if applicable), and searchable lots (including pictures and item details) for each item for sale. Registering to bid is free and easy; HiBid’s platform is also mobile-friendly, so bidders can monitor items of interest and place bids quickly and easily.

Legend Coin’s auctions are also posted to its company website, which, along with its email, is hosted through Sandhills Publishing (the company behind Auction Flex, HiBid, and AuctionTime.com). The site displays information about Legend Coin’s service offerings, details about its staff of industry experts, a historical reference of prices realized, news and market reports, and catalogs for upcoming auctions. Most importantly, it provides buyers and sellers with a quick access point for information, and a professional online presence for Legend Coin Auctions. “Hosting with a company that understands our auction needs ensures a seamless, mobile-friendly site for our customers,” says Serena Myers.

For Legend Coin, Auction Flex and HiBid ensure continual success in a competitive and evolving industry landscape. “Online auctions are the key to competing in today’s market,” says Serena, adding that they are increasingly becoming the industry standard. “Buyers want the ability to bid on a reliable platform from the comfort of their homes.”

Legend Coin Auctions will hold its final sale for 2017—a live auction also open to online bidders through HiBid.com—in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 14th at 4:30 p.m. (PT). The sale features 392 items, and is already open for prebidding. Register to bid for free at HiBid.com, and find more information in the HiBid catalog for this auction.
