How to sign up for an account

Next, fill in the form on the sign up page.
On a mobile devide the form looks very similar.
Once you have completed the form, agreed to the Terms & Conditions (click the check box below the password field) and pressed the 'Register' button, you will automatically remain logged in and redirected to the last page you visited before you pressed the Sign up button.
To place bids, The Coin Cabinet will need to approve you as a bidder.

It may take 24-48 hours for us to approve your bidder account as we make sure all our registered bidders are real persons. We are likely to contact you to make sure we set up your bidder account according to your specific needs. If necessary we may ask for
- Numismatic references
- ID document (copy of passport/driving licence)
- Proof of address
- Recent bank statements (assisting us in setting your credit limit)
Unauthorised and/or fake bidding is a rising problem in online-only auctions. Therefore we do our outmost to be responsible auctioneers and take further steps than most other auction houses to perform KYC (Know Your Customer) checks. While the purpose is to keep our bidder database free of fake users and our auctions free of fake bids, we believe this also enables us to provide a better service to our customers.
