How to CoinSnipe:

CoinSniper Auctions are based on the Penny Auction format, so if you’re familiar with these kinds of auctions, you’ll know what to do. Here’s how to get started:

1. Register and Try out the Reward Auction Games
After you register (within 24 hours), we’ll give you 985 Reward Points (same as Reward Bids) so you can try out a Beginner Auction on us. When you need more, you can redeem the Reward Points you win to get bonus free coins or bonus Paid CoinSnipes (bids) buy more CoinSnipes for less than 60¢ each using your PayPal account or credit card. Using a credit card through PayPal is easy, even if you don’t have an account. But if you don’t like PayPal, I have another credit card payment alternative for you, too.

Beginner Auctions are the low-risk way to try out CoinSniper.com. Even if you’re a seasoned penny auction pro, we suggest starting here to try out the system and take advantage of zero reserve.

2. See what makes CoinSniper different
Once you get the hang of CoinSniping, look for more valuable coins in our Expert auctions, and take advantage of Bidding Bounties (free CoinSnipes given for all unsold lots) and CS Vault Credits (discounts for outright purchases in the CS Vault). Not sure what all this means? Check out the Auction Glossary. Why all the strange rules? Just like coin collecting, knowledge, experience, understanding and DETAILS make the difference between a good collector and a not-so-good one. This site is built for collectors who thrive on details and knowing how to exploit them! Take the time to get smart and you’ll get amazing deals.

3. Become a Collector
When you’re ready to join the hobby of Kings and build your collection, visit the Numismatic Learning Center—our free resource for (almost) everything you could want to know about coin collecting.
