Coin purchases

 

We are always very interested in your coin collection and we will buy the whole collection or individual pieces from it by mutual agreement for cash or by transfer/check.

Get in touch with us and we will be able to discuss in person where it would be most convenient to meet.

You can contact us, as you prefer, by telephone, fax, cell phone or email using the details provided, or you can use our contact form.

We are also a partner of the WAG Online Association, which means that you can also put your coins up for sale at any time in one of our monthly online auctions. We will be happy to advise you!

The acquisition of a shop in the city center of Bochum is in preparation!

If you are interestet in coins you have seen in our onlineshop, get in contact or if you don´t trust onlineshops visit us our store in the city of Bochum.

Of course, you can also contact us if you have, for example, a coin in the shops, but an online purchase possibly. do not trust.

If you already belong to our customer base and allow us to contact you, we can, of course, offer you a coin personally if you know your collection area.

Last but not least, under the menu item “Commission sales” we point out the possibility of such a sales transaction.

Sale on commission

 

Sales on commission in accordance with Sections 383 to 406 of the German Commercial Code (HGB) have gone out of fashion a little nowadays.

On the one hand, we offer you nothing but sale on commission in principle through the online shop, eBay auctions and WAG Online Auctions; in practice, this is the modern version of the so-called historical “Trödelvertrag” (sale or return contract).

On the other hand, we would like to make this service available explicitly to those who are interested, as we can also see that there may be advantages for you in offering your items for sale in the window of our shop in downtown Bochum, for example, by means of a commission contract.

If you share that view, please feel free to contact us in person so that we can conclude a mutually agreeable commission contact.

Coin appraisal

 

We will be happy to appraise your individual pieces or your entire coin collection.

Please get in touch with us to discuss the details.

You can choose your preferred method of contacting us from the contact box on the left of the screen.

Lists of missing items

 

Are you a coin or medal collector who is looking to complete a collection? Simply send us a list of your missing items!

With your permission, we will then enter it directly into our IT system so that we can notify you if we have any additions for your collection. Of course, this service is free of charge to you and you are not exposing yourself to any risk or entering into an obligation to make a purchase by sending your list of missing items to us.
