Title: Singapore Auction July 28 of MCC!
Post by: PandaCollector on July 12, 2012, 03:51:05 AM
I finally received my copy of the catalog for the Collectors Auction House auction in Singapore on July 28. Even though the company has run ads in China Pricepedia for the last two months, until now I had no idea how many Modern Chinese Coins are in this sale. I count close to 200 lots of material that varies from nice to outstanding. There doesn't seem to be an online catalog, but the email address is collectors.auction.house@gmail.com. They may still be able to rush some catalogs out in time.

I have 4 extra catalogs that I will ship by Priority Mail to the first USA residents who contact me at pricepedia@yahoo.com (one per person, please).

Thanks and good luck. Given how overlooked this sale is there could be some great buys.

Best wishes,
Peter Anthony

After I ran out of catalogs I emailed the auction house with the idea that I could send out, or post, a PDF version of the catalog for China Pricepedia readers. They liked the idea, but so far it hasn't arrived. If and when it does I will try to make it available to Forum readers, too. It should be an interesting auction with a good amount of modern China coins plus paper currency and older coins.

Thanks Peter, is this a well established auction house? It has a net URL? Did you already has good experience with them? Good if they like the idea for the readears of the CCF.

thank you

Many thanks Peter. Just realized I received a copy earlier but didn't open the mail until today.

It's their first auction, but I was told that the company is run by the retired distributor for the China Mint in Singapore. I also spoke to someone who has done business with them in the past and he is confident that they are reliable.

Thanks for the PDF link to the catalog Peter. After reviewing it there seems to be a noticeable absence of quality silver pandas.

The Panda coins in this sale are mostly gold, but there is a fair selection of silver Lunars, and some other cool silver coins. Lot 316, the 5 oz. Sino-Singapore Friendship stands out.

It's supposed to be there, but I can't find it either.

The Liveauctioneers connection is up and running now. Here is the link:

http://www.liveauctioneers.com/catalog/30801_collectors-auction-house/page1 (http://www.liveauctioneers.com/catalog/30801_collectors-auction-house/page1)

The catalog can be viewed there, too. Note the time and date of the auction. It is listed by Singapore time. Where I live that means the 27th, not the 28th of July.

Good luck to all bidders!

I registered for the auction at live auctioneers, but so far it did not get approved. Someone emailed me asking for reference - I have provided a lot of details, but so far no response back. Not sure what is the issue ?! :-/

Perhaps email them directly and register your bid.

Liveauctioneer attracts 18% commission. Postal bid is 15%.

If they are skeptical about approving me through the site (where my details are verified and I have participated in other auctions), I doubt they will accept my email bid. However, let's see what happens - I will keep it posted here.

Try installing the live auctioneers application on your phone.
It may be easier to register that way.

I am a member of live auctioneer already. What I meant is that once I registered for this particular auction, the agent from "Collectors' Auction House" (from Singapore) emailed me for verification, and that is where it is stalled so far.

IS anyone able to get approval for bidding in this auction online ? My approval for Champion auction came very quickly, but still nothing on this one - although I received an email saying they would be processing my approval, but that's about it. Very strange.
