Consigning to Auction

Any consignor wants their item/s to reach the highest possible price at auction, and with Baldwin's you can rest assured that they are in the right hands. We are the current holders of numerous world prices achieved at auction (to view some of our major sales, click here), and we take care to ensure that your items receive the best possible exposure to potential buyers.

We produce auction catalogues of the highest quality, all of which are expertly researched by our team, that provide a unique selling tool for your collection. As we produce all our catalogues in-house, we can personalise them to create a lasting record. Samples of previous examples are available upon request.


Experience has taught us that high prices are always the result when quality is combined with experienced and meticulous cataloguing.


In addition, our in-house marketing team will devise full geographical advertising, marketing and promotional strategies across on- and off-line activities to promote the sale, the results of which are proven auction after auction. 

Items listed for auction are advertised well in advance on our own website, as well as on numerous other auction sites such as

where potential buyers can place bids up to four weeks prior to the auction.

On the day of the auction itself, we ensure that any potential buyers have no excuse to miss your lots coming up - we broadcast live through our website, where buyers can view and listen to the auction as it proceeds, and bid on those lots of interest against bidders in the auction room. Alerts can be set up by potential buyers to make sure they do not miss your items when they come up.

In addition to this, we run live up-to-the-minute commentaries of the auction across our social media feeds (with another potential audience in the tens of thousands), so there is never an excuse for a potential buyer to 'miss' your lots.

With Baldwin's, your lots could reach up to one million potential buyers every day!

This truly worldwide exposure for your items cannot be found anywhere else - only Baldwin's can offer such comprehensive coverage. We were the first numismatic auction house to offer online bidding in 2006, and we constantly keep abreast of new technology and innovation to ensure that we remain at the cutting edge of numismatic auctions.
