An Important Message From Stacks Bowers Galleries Regarding Buyer’s Fees

Author: Stack's Bowers Galleries / February 27, 2012

As most of you are probably aware, the past year has been quite an exciting one for Stack’s Bowers Galleries, our team and our valued clients. The creation of the company has allowed us to offer you many new and improved opportunities for buying and selling exceptional U.S. and World coins and paper currency, such as the Stack’s Bowers Galleries Official Auctions of the ANA World’s Fair of Money and ANA/PNG Pre-show, multiple auctions in Hong Kong, as well as our continued tenure as the Official Auctioneer of the Whitman Coin and Collectibles Baltimore Expos three times a year.


In keeping with current industry trend and in order for us to continue to provide you with ever-increasing auction opportunities and outstanding service, we will be updating our buyer’s fee schedule, effective with our Official Baltimore Auction beginning June 25, 2012. Our new buyer’s fee will be 17.5% of hammer. However, our current policy is to offer a discounted buyer’s fee of 15% on all invoices totaling $50,000 or more of hammer.

Stack’s Bowers Galleries Revised Buyer’s Fee Schedule Effective June 2012*



TOTAL AUCTION HAMMER PURCHASE                                BUYER’S FEE

Total Invoice Over $50,000 USD at Hammer 15%

These changes will not affect the 2012 March Baltimore auction. The new fee schedule will initiate with all Stack’s Bowers Galleries and Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio auctions beginning June 2012.


Please do not hesitate to call us at 949.253.0916 if you have any questions regarding this new fee schedule. As always, we greatly appreciate that you have chosen Stack’s Bowers Galleries for your numismatic auction needs and we look forward to providing you with continued excellent service.
