Legend Rare Coin Auctions’ (LRCA) Regency Auctions have experienced very strong growth in 2018, with two sales containing enough material to justify two-day auction events. The boutique concept LRCA has created found a niche that was long overlooked. The market for hand-selected, high-quality U.S. coins was much stronger than expected. It is with great pride in the growth and demand for the Legend brand auctions that the firm is announcing that in 2019, there will be six Regency Auctions, including the first time that a Regency Auction will be a “stand-alone” event (being held in January), that will not be in conjunction with a PCGS Members Show (all others for 2019 will be held in conjunction with PCGS’ Shows).
To accommodate the additional Regency Auction, LRCA is also announcing that the December 2018 Premier Session will be the firm’s final monthly Internet-only auction. While these sales have been very successful, due to the overwhelming demand for Regency Auctions from both consignors and buyers, the firm is redirecting its efforts into the Regency Auctions to ensure that they become the best U.S. numismatic auction events of the entire year. However, to give the monthly Premier Sessions the farewell they deserve, LRCA is pleased to announce that the December Premier Session will be the biggest and best yet—the firm is billing it as a mini-Regency Auction.
“From its outset, LRCA was designed to be different, and offer a different level of quality,” explained the firm’s president, Julie Abrams, “and we mean not just the quality of the coins being sold, but the quality of the customer service and the experience for both buyers and sellers. To that end, we thought the monthly Premier Sessions provided a great opportunity for collectors of coins in the $1,000-$10,000 range. While we are sad to see them go, we are very excited for what the future holds for our Regency Auctions.”
The remaining 2018 monthly Premier Sessions will continue on as scheduled, with a very impressive offering being planned for December’s final session. Lot viewing will take place at the December PCGS Member’s Show, December 12-14.
The first 2019 Regency Auction will be held on Sunday, January 27, 2019, at the Beverly Hills Marriot, and will begin at 4:30 PST. This will be a stand-alone sale, held just prior to the always popular Long Beach Expo. More details about collections already consigned will be announced in the coming weeks. Due to the holiday season, consignments must be in house no later than Wednesday, November 28.
Regency Auctions will be conducted as the Official Auction for the PCGS Member’s Show throughout the rest of the year, with specific dates and locations to be announced shortly.
