ANA and Collectica, Inc. Enter Agreement to Create a Safe Online Auction Community
Collectica, Inc., an online auction community and marketplace for collectors, has entered into a collaborative agreement with the American Numismatic Association. The relationship is designed to address online consumer protection issues and create a safer, more userfriendly online experience for collectors.
Headquartered in Chicago, Collectica provides not only an auctions marketplace, but a space for members to showcase their collections and interact with other enthusiasts. It has a large focus on coins and currency, but also welcomes many other collector interests, including stamps, music and sports memorabilia. Members can showcase and organize their collections, meet people with similar collecting interests, establish clubs, host virtual meetings, read industry news and share information about upcoming events. Collectors can even keep their collections private so only their friends can view their albums. The marketplace is free to list in and closely patrolled to fight against fraud.
Under the terms of the agreement, the ANA has a representative on Collectica’s Executive Board of Advisors, and will work with Collectica’s management team to develop sound operating guidelines and address coin and currency consumer protection issues. Participation in Collectica’s dealer tier is limited to ANA members in good standing, and the ANA receives a portion of all auctions involving ANA members.
“We are thrilled to be working with the ANA. This relationship is an important step in showing our commitment to collectors,” Collectica CEO Michael Dworecki said. “We intend to continue to rollout features that will benefit numismatists, and we look forward to hearing from the collectors themselves with feedback and support.”
