Selling Through IAG Auctions   BACK  
Why Us?

International Auction Galleries has been a leading Australian Auction House for over 30 years, established in 1985 with a proven track record and an outstanding reputation.

Our commission rates are the most competitive in Australia, with NO SELLERS COMMISSIONS OR FEES (0% Commission), and NO other charges! With others charging up to 40% in total commissions and fees, you will get up to 20% MORE by selling with IAG. Lower fees means both Buyers and Sellers are the big winners in our auctions!

We specialise in high quality "boutique" style Coin and Banknote Auctions that whilst smaller in size, are big in results. Our focus is on everything from unreserved lots for $1 to the very rarest in numismatic items. Our Auction Sales are a yearly numismatic highlight, attended by many of the biggest dealers and collectors in Australia. As of 2016 we have done over 100 LIVE and Online Coin and Banknote Auctions over a period of 30 years, and have achieved well over $120 Million in sales.

We also hold more Auctions than any other auction house, averaging one sale every 2 months. This means you have more options when it comes to selling, and have much less of a wait time for payment. Our Auctions continue to set record prices, and we currently hold several pricing "World Records", including the highest price for any Australian numismatic item, and the highest sale price achieved for any numismatic auction in Australia of $1,909,000. In 2008 we sold 2 items in consecutive sales for over $1,000,000 each!

IAG's numismatic specialist and the auction co-ordinator Paul is considered one of the leading numismatic experts on Australian Coin and Banknote Rarities, and has been National President of A.N.D.A. (The Australasian Numismatic Dealers Association) four times. Paul is also the longest ever serving ANDA Committee member (18 years and counting) including serving as Vice President for 8 years, and chairing numerous Numismatic committees, and heading up the Ethics and Good Conduct Committee (E&GCC).

No Sellers Commissions, more frequent Auctions, faster payment, confidentiality, integrity and professional service – that's why we are....
