BWIC Auctions

Combining elements of traditional financial markets, fractional ownership, and collectible auctions into a revolutionary competitive sealed auction process.

What is a BWIC Auction?

Collectable’s BWIC Auction is an innovative and proprietary sales channel and price discovery process, modeled after the public financial markets, that serves as a formal request for bids on investment grade collectibles. Collectors and investors can bid to own iconic collectible assets individually or as part of a group. (Note: Group Bidding is only available to verified accredited investors)
