Heritage Auctions will conduct a World Currency Weekly Auction that runs each Tuesday on HA.com, the firm announced Jan. 25.

The weekly auctions came about because of the continued growth in recent years of the Heritage Auctions Currency Department, which eclipsed $41 million in sales in 2018, Heritage reported.

“The increase in popularity and demand for world currency offered by Heritage Auctions in recent years has called for the birth of a dedicated platform,” said Dustin Johnston, Heritage vice president Dustin Johnston said. “We foresee a continued growth in world currency, and the weekly Tuesday auctions will go a long way toward allowing Heritage to meet the needs of collectors everywhere. They will have a variety of graded and ungraded bank notes from across the globe.”

The next World Currency Signature Auction will be April 24-30 in Schaumburg, Illinois.

“The lots in the weekly sales will be 100 percent unreserved, increasing the appeal to collectors of all levels,” Johnson said.
