Today's the day! This is the blog where you can comment about all the news and notes that I will be updating live in this blog. You can watch the auction live @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4FjRhrXjkM. Here I will update the important news and updates like who gets the gold coin, who's doing well, and other things. Thank you to all who have donated their coins, currency, time and money to this auction. YN's today all over the nation thank you, because without you, today would be impossible. Enjoy the auction!

11:57 A.M. EST A lot of rookies in this year's auction. I saw 5 1st years, 2 2nds, 2 3rds, 2 4ths. Good sign for the growth of the hobby!

12:34 P.M EST A lot of bids going on right now as some YN 's are going hot out of the gate. Over 50 people watching consistently! New record!

1:02 P.M. EST A lot of YN's still holding out waiting for the right moment to strike. Reports of many people with over 1,000 YN dollars leaves us with an interesting storyline heading into the meat of the auction. Nothing major happening as of late but stay tuned for more!

1:08 P.M. EST Some fun quotes from YN's:

999 Kevman: "The Lots are selling fast. bid, bid, bid.

Coin King 15:"this auction is a great time for all those who participate, thanks to all who made this possible."

Mihir K: "Too much calling going on; just be well prepared, bid and be surprised. That's the fun of it."

UPDATE: 53 registered bidders officially.

1:15 P.M. Someone just got ejected from the auction for not registering and not cooperating with the auctioneers. Not good for him, but definitely well deserved.

"Good, I guess haha"

Go check it out!

UPDATE:Garrett Ziss Bought that redbook (lot 57) for $425 YN dollars


So I asked YN's what their favorite college is:

Carter Bell: BYU
Kenny:Penn State
TheCoinStudent:Notre Dame
Lufstob Lee: Ohio State
Jonas:William and Mary


YN's paying their respects to Rollie and Abby Z bought lot #76 for 200 Yn dollars

Jonas also is the first person in YN auction history to use an emoji to bid as he used an 100 emoji on lot #76. Major style points.

Rest In peace, Rollie.


We're almost at the grab bags. Who will win? West, Central, or East? Stay Tuned.
