Worldwide Recognition

Rapp Auctions has been established for decades on the worldwide philatelic market. Now, after our debut in numismatics a few years ago, we have gained an excellent reputation on that market as well. Rapp auction sales are different – this is evidenced by our public appearance, our comprehensive advertising output and, in particular, our high quality auction catalogues.

Auction Catalogues

Only quality sells quality


We have always been dedicating greatest care and substantial funds for the best possible presentation of our auctions catalogues. All the pictures of our consignments are actually lithografic prints in the highest possible quality. Every working step as well as the colour adjustments with the valuable original is being handled professionally and with extraordinary care. To take pictures of our numismatic treasures, we have installed a camera station specifically calibrated for coins and medals.

The editing is then carried out in our in-house graphics department, which results in top quality hardcover catalogues year by year. Collectors, consignors and buyers from all over the world are impressed, because our catalogues show exactly what stamps and coins are all about.

eCatalogues

Everything with one click – the digital auction catalogues


In order to offer you a simple and fast alternative besides our high-quality printed auction catalogues, we will put all catalogues for free and digitalised at your disposal on our website (around a month before the auction sale). The so-called eCatalogues were very much appreciated by our customers during the last auctions. Thanks to the modern display in form of a browse catalogue, it feels like having the original catalogue in front of you. 

Highest quality and interactivity
The high resolution of the pictures and the simplicity of browsing them, have led to written bids of potential buyers, even before the catalogues were printed and sent out.

But there's more to it than that. Our eCatalogues are not only informative but also interactive! With just one mouse click, you can access the following functions:

  • Additional illustrations on the internet
    Are there any reasons that prevent you from personally attending the viewing of the auction lots? No problem! Click on the magnifier symbol in the lot description and you can see, download and print generously illustrated excerpts of our collections.
  • Download the certificates
    Of course we have also digitized all certificates and experts’ reports. We provide the possibility to study them along with the lots by just clicking on the words "Attest" or "Fotobefund".

The digital version of our catalogues allows us to keep up with the needs of our international buying clientele and our consignors. Register for our newsletter and we will inform you as soon as our eCatalogues are available.

Fair Attendance

Rapp Auctions is represented at international trade shows for philately and numismatics. We take advantage of these favourable opportunities to advise customers and potential customers from around the world personally and competently and to stand by them as a reliable partner during the sale of their stamps and coins.

If you decide to entrust us with a consignment, it is of course possible for you to hand it over to us right at our trade fair stand. We will ensure the safe and uncomplicated transport of your treasures to Switzerland.


The international coin fair Numismata Munich will be taking place on 4th and 5th March 2017, and Rapp Auctions will once again be represented at its own large stand.
