BOSTON, MA, UNITED STATES, November 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The tradition of going to an auction in a physical brick and mortar space is no longer the only way to bid on items. Today, auction houses are expanding their reach by encouraging their clients to download their mobile app or to go directly to their website to participate in their sale. As an example, Baldwin's of St James's (BSJ), ranking among the top numismatic auctioneers of rare coins, has been using Auction Mobility’s digital platform to run their live and timed auctions, helping to attract new bidders and grow their business.
The excitement of a live auction has an emotional and competitive factor which helps drive up the price of an item. This excitement isn't lost when clients download BSJ's mobile app or go to their online platform. A no-Latency Hi-Def video stream keeps the auction's excitement alive just as if bidders were sitting feet from the auctioneer. They can now participate in the auction from anywhere in the world with a single swipe or a click of a button.
Expanding ways to engage participants in an auction is what auction houses are finding crucial in today's digital world. The features of BSJ's auction platform keeps the integrity of the auction, while adding convenience for the bidder. Some of those features include absentee bidding and ‘watching’ a lot which triggers a push notification to the bidder’s phone when that lot is coming up.
Baldwin’s Auctions, founded in 1872, is one of the largest and longest established numismatic dealers and auction houses in the world. St. James's Auctions was established in 2004 as the auction division of Knightsbridge Coins, a thriving business founded in the mid-1970s. St. James's Auctions rapidly grew into one of the UK’s most reputable auction houses for coins, medallions, tokens, paper money and related objects, prompting a new venture in January 2017, when St. James’s Auctions and Baldwin’s Auctions decided to merge their two names, forming a new auction company called Baldwin’s of St. James’s. They now hold more coin auctions per year than any other UK based Numismatic Auction house.
Baldwin’s of St. James’s world-class team of specialists have over 200 years of numismatic experience amongst them and a historic track record of valuing all aspects of numismatic material – from Coins to Banknotes to Military and Commemorative Medals to Tokens to Books.
