bid boardWhat is a bid board?

What is known as a “silent auction” in other industries is known as a “bid board” in the coin business. Many different coins and other items are pinned to boards, along with corresponding cards for people to write their bids on.

How it works:

Customers peruse items on the boards. If they see an item they like, they may place a bid by writing their unique bidder ID number and a dollar amount higher than the previous bid. When the bidding time ends, whoever has the highest bid on an item gets to purchase it for the amount they bid.

When:

Starts each Saturday at 9:30am

Ends the following Saturday at 9:30am
