Amazon Now Has A Store Just For Collectible CoinsBy: Chris Crum - May 28, 2014
Amazon just launched a new store for Collectible Coins at amazon.com/collectiblecoins. It claims to offer direct access to over 10,000 unique U.S. coins from over 75 dealers.
According to the company, shoppers will be able to peruse a “wide variety of professionally graded and authenticated coins”.
“Collectors of rare coins are passionate about the hobby because coins represent the intersection of history, collectibility and wealth,” said Steve Johnson, director for the Amazon Marketplace. “Coins have been one of the most searched for items in our collectibles stores. The introduction of the Collectible Coins store was inspired by customer demand and the need to provide a unique experience for customers to discover graded and rare U.S. coins from reputable dealers. We’re thrilled to bring the excitement and discovery of coin collecting to Amazon.”
“Collecting rare coins is a unique opportunity to hold history in your hand, along with the knowledge that you own a lasting symbol that has inherent value and importance,” added Brian Kendrella, president for Stack’s Bowers Galleries. “We are excited about the opportunity to showcase our unique numismatic products to Amazon’s customers and reach a broad customer base that may be new to the joys of coin collecting.”
The site offers quite a few search filters to make it easier to find coins of interest. You can search by individual coins or sets, by mint year, by denomination (quarter, nickel, dollar, etc.), by mint location, by metal, by series, by condition, by grade rating, by period, by price, and by seller.
The store also has its own mailing list.
Amazon’s offering should not only provide a great resource for current collectors and dealers, but make coin collecting in general more accessible to a broader range of people.
