Einlieferung/Verkauf mit CGB Numismatique Paris

Wie kann man Münzen oder Banknoten verkaufen?

Have you made up your mind? Are you ready to sell and let go of your collection or the one that belonged to your great-uncle or great-grandmother? Then let us guide you and assist you. CGB Numismatics Paris is a team of more than 20 experts based in Paris at Rue Vivienne since 1988. We specialize in the sale of collectable coins, medals, jetons, tokens, and banknotes from all historical periods and geographic areas. To find out more about us and our background, click on the following link:

Who are we?

Sellers usually have multiple reasons to sell: to focus a universal collection on a more specific topic; to sell duplicate coins in order to finance future purchases and thereby keep their collection alive, to sell a full collection and leave behind a long-lasting written record in a reference catalog, to sell average condition coins or banknotes in order to buy a higher quality specimen or - in over half of the cases - to sell a collection inherited or found among family belongings.

Two options are offered to you: you may go either for a direct sale or consignment. For sales, the valuation of your coins, medals, tokens and banknotes is determined based on our stock and your coins’ interest, quality and specificity. As far as complete sets, treasures and fortuitous discoveries are concerned, these are dealt with separately. For treasure troves, please visit our dedicated webpage at http://www.cgb.fr/tresors.html

How to make an appointment

Would you like to consign/sell numismatic material? Nothing could be simpler. Just contact one of our numismatists:

    • by email (contact@cgb.fr) - please attach a sample of your coins, jetons, tokens, banknotes, etc., as well as a few representative pictures/scans of your collection.

    • by mail contact@cgb.fr to arrange for an appointment. We strongly recommend that you make an appointment with the numismatist(s) in charge of your collecting period before showing up at our shop in Paris (at 36 rue Vivienne, in the 2nd  arrondissement).

    • by coming to meet us at numismatic shows and/or conventions in which CGB Numismatique Paris’ experts take part. The full list of these events is available at: http://www.cgb.fr/salons_numismatiques.htm

In a few specific cases, we may visit private or professional customers directly in order to examine the collection(s) to be put up for sale.

CGB Numismatics Paris offers three sales solutions to those who would like to consign their material with us:

    • fixed-price sales on one of our on-line shops (www.cgb.fr), making it possible to have your material published in a marked-price paper catalog. Minimum amount of each item: €150.00;

    • Internet Auctions: for numismatic collectibles of intermediate value. Sales duration: three weeks, on-line only (www.cgb.fr), with a Live closing (live bids placed on the closing day of the sale, starting at 2 pm). Minimum valuation of each item offered for sale: €250.00;

    • Live Auctions: online sales (on our website: www.cgb.fr) supported by a paper catalog. They spread over 4 weeks and close with a dynamic final phase of electronic bidding, i.e. the Live auction (live bids placed on the closing day of the sale starting at 2pm). These sales are exclusively for items valued at a minimum of €500. Coins, jetons and tokens are included in a specific catalog. Banknotes are gathered in another one.

After contacting one of our specialized experts, who will set the starting prices with you and give you a quote, you will receive a slip containing the agreed starting price and quote for each item, plus the commission rate and the reference number assigned by CGB Numismatics Paris.

You will be asked to supply various documents:

    • a valid ID document: ID card, passport, or driving license;

   • your bank details
Also think about gathering any information you may have about the items you want to sell: their origins, purchase dates, “pedigree”, any little stories, specialized classification, hardly-known bibliographical references, references from other sales that could help trace back their history, etc. When put to good use, all this information enables us to highlight your collectibles better and make them more attractive. Help us as much as you can to make the buyer share your knowledge of your coin’s special story and features. Our role is to supply as much information as possible on the item in order to optimize its sale.
