  1. What are the features of the new platform?

    CNG’s new auction platform offers an array of new features. The most exciting of these is the Saved Search function, which will allow customers to save key word searches and automatically receive weekly email notifications related to those searches. A new watch list will allow bidders to follow lots that they are interested in within a sale. Customers will also have the ability to view upcoming and past bids in our auctions. And finally, the new platform will present integrated live bidding for our flagship Triton auction, eliminating the need to register with an outside site.

    Further features are in development and expected to roll out in the coming weeks, including iOS and Android apps.

  3. How do I register for an auction?

    Registering to bid in our auctions requires some additional information. This step must be completed prior to bidding in any CNG auction, and users must register for all subsequent auctions. If you are a current CNG customer in good standing, your first registration could take up to 24 hours for the approval to bid process to be completed. All subsequent auction registrations will only require you to verify that none of your contact information has changed, or to update the information if it has changed. Your approval to bid will remain on file and be instantaneous, so in the future you will be able to bid immediately. New user accounts will need to be verified via other numismatic references, and may take longer.

    A. Go to auctions.cngcoins.com.

     “auctions.cngcoins.com”

    B. Click Register to Bid button next to the auction you are interested in.

     “auctions.cngcoins.com”

    C. Enter or confirm your First Name, Last Name, Company, Phone Number, and Shipping Address.

    D. Check the box to indicate that you have read and agree to Conditions of Sale, Terms of Use, and Privacy Policy.

    E. Check the box to indicate that you are 18 years of age or older

    F. Click Register.

  4. How do I bid on and use the new platform?

    The auction platform can be reached directly by going to auctions.cngcoins.com, or by clicking any auction links on cngcoins.com, including in the top navigation bar, categories in the Feature Auctions and Electronic Auctions section, or via search results.

    There are two basic types of auction closes on the new platform: Timed Auctions, such as our esales or mailbid auctions, and Live Auctions, like our Triton sale. Bidding on this new platform is mostly the same as earlier. For Live Auctions (which are technically Timed Then Live Auctions), pre-bidding will be handled as a Timed Auction, and will be accepted up until the moment that the lot opens on the floor, at which point the lot closes as a Live Auction.
