The Coffee House is an opportunity for you to see and chat with others, show off items from your collection, ask questions and generally socialize. The Coffee House is open on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.

Consult your Newsletter and emails from the club for details about upcoming Coffee House events. You can also contact us on Facebook Messenger or send us an email.

Live Auctions (Currently Suspended)

A limited number of auction lists are available at the meetings so be sure to print off a copy and bring it with you.

Our auctions always have some unique, rare and interesting items. The auction sheets are available in PDF format below. We welcome you to come out whether you are a member or a guest. Anyone may bid in person on auction items, but only W.C.S. members are permitted to submit items for our future auctions.

Generally the lead-time to submit is 2-3 meetings with an average of five items per submitter per auction. A consignor may submit a dozen or more items, however they will be spread over a number of months at the Auction Coordinator's discretion.

A small commission based on the final sale price is paid by the consignor for any items sold at auction:

  • $14.99 or less: 25 cents
  • $15 - 24.99: $1.00
  • $25 - 34.99: $2.00
  • $35.00 or more: $3.00

The Auction Coordinator reserves the right to refuse and/or withdraw an item at his discretion. Reserve prices are based on a number of factors and sources and usually set at 50% of the market value. Contact the Auction Coordinator (Brian Faulkner) for further information or if you would like to submit items for upcoming auctions. Bidders and consignors are encouraged to review the Auction Guidelines.

Please use the Auction Consignment Form provided which you can fill out and hand in personally to Brian along with your consignments.

Can I bring family and friends to your meetings?

Absolutely, we encourage family and friends and fully believe "the more the merrier". Of course we hope you enjoy the experience so much that you give serious consideration to joining our club! Our monthly meetings are always open to the public (collectors and non-collectors) regardless of their numismatic knowledge.
