Bidders all over the world are anxious to buy now, and we are attracting many new buyers with every auction. For the upcoming auction they seek shipwreck coins, especially gold cobs (which have done very well lately); gold coins (particularly from Latin America); early and dated cobs from Mexico, Lima and Potosi; rare world silver crowns; and high-end shipwreck artifacts in good condition with proper certification. It almost goes without saying that gold and silver ingots are doing very well in the current market of record melt values, and since they have all the top customers for shipwreck bullion, this auction is by far the best place to sell treasure ingots.
