Welcome to the World Coin Gallery Coin Trading System
You can now arrange a trade with other collectors around the world without EVER having to sort through doubles lists to figure out what they have that you want, and vice versa!
Here's how the system works:
Step 1. Log-in to World Coin Gallery and check the boxes in the "C" column next to each coin type in your Collection and the "S" column for your Spares available for trade. If you would like to create a Want list, check the boxes in the "W" column. Click the "Update" button at the bottom of each page. If you have a large collection or doubles list already recorded as an Excel spreadsheet, simply add a column, populate it with the WCG_Key for each coin type, send the file to me and I will load your collection and/or spare coin data all at once!
Step 2. If you haven't already done so, Register for Coin Trading to establish your interest in trading.
Step 3. Evaluate Potential Trades. This will compare your spare coins to the collections of all other members who have registered for coin trading and produce a report listing all of the spares you have available that other coin traders do not have and all of the spares other collectors are offering that you do not have.
This system is REVOLUTIONIZING world coin trading!
We never need to sort through doubles lists, often written with country names in other languages, to determine potential trade opportunities.
From your report of potential trades, you can click to display a list of all your spares that you can offer the other collector and all their spares that they can offer to you. Simply follow up with that collector by email to balance a trade, privately exchange postal mailing addresses and mail and receive coins!
Always check out the honesty of the person you are trading with. Worldcoingallery does not screen coin traders registering to use this system. Ask for references, check "Good Trader" and "Bad Trader" lists on-line. My favorite list is maintained by David Rivera Alonso. And check out the person you want to trade with on our Members and Trades Excel file. You can also submit a new record for the Trade history file by adding a record for yourself in the Trade Members Table (use the next available Index number) and entering your trades into the New Trades Database. My good friend Zdravko Bosnjak (in Croatia) periodically transfers records from the database into the Excel history file.
If you have any questions or suggestions about this coin trading system, please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
