At CDN, we are frequently asked how we determine prices. Obviously
this is of great concern to our readers and is a subject that we often discuss
in these pages. Although the details of each item we appreciate are nuanced and
specific, there is an obvious answer: CDN Exchange.
CDN Exchange (CDNX)
is an incredible tool that is available to all coin dealers who levels the
playground for all participants to compete and collaborate in the rare
money and paper money market.
Readers of Gray sheet monthly have seen ads in these pages for
years but so far we haven’t done the case for the incredible
importance and value offered by the Stock Exchange.
The main reason is that the development of CDN Exchange to date
was basically a 10 year “soft launch” where we slowly rolled out new
features and improvements and tested them in real time with our loyal followers
CDN Exchange was originally launched as “CoinPlex” and in 2017 we merged it
into the CDN Publishing family and renamed it. Since then, we have found a great
development company to take CDNX to the next level, and we spent well
in six figures to improve the platform.
And the best part, we’re still working on huge improvements that
will allow dealers, large and small, to do a lot more business.
Is CDN Exchange for you?
The first consideration is whether CDN Exchange is right for you. the
the cost of membership is $ 150 per month, billed automatically to your credit card. (New
members can kick tires for 30 days, free!)
Obviously, CDNX is a good deal if you exchange coins or paper money on a
regularly. It will pay for itself the first day you use it, even if
you do not participate in the auction aspects. We have intentionally kept
the low subscription price to make the Exchange affordable for all
reseller, coin store and jewelry in the country.
The main components of CDN Exchange are:

the Stock Exchange is fully loaded with over 230,000 active wholesale CDN prices,
grows daily as we grow continuously. We have not only updated the prices
continuously because we review specific items daily, but

As a CDNX member, you join a community of like-minded dealers
parts of the numismatic market. We have members of all sizes: some
without employees at the world’s largest dealers, including Heritage
Auctions, APMEX, CAC, Stack’s Bowers and others.
The community aspect of CDN Exchange revolves around our modern messaging
system that allows members to communicate with each other. We are married
the traditional text “messages” of the old teletypewriter systems with images,
“Likes” and the comments we now know in modern social media
sites like Facebook and LinkedIn. When you post a message, it is emailed to
all users * (users can choose to opt out of specific senders) also,
ensure the best possible radiation. Our members tell us that they have a
incredibly high interaction rate on their offers. The best part …
there is NO transaction cost for you. CDN Exchange works only as
and we are not involved in any transaction.
Surprisingly, trade is one of the most underrated aspects of the system.
Most members start with the price research system,
realize the enormous commercial potential that the system offers to members. the
CAC’s commercial arm, for example, has over $ 900,000 in separate offers. If you
want to know why CAC coins are trading higher than non-CAC coins, the
the reason will be immediately apparent when you join the system.
Seth Chandler of Witter Coin in San Francisco loves message boards on
CDNX where he offers freshly calibrated pieces that enter their shop. He publishes
a quick picture and description and the parts usually sell out within minutes.
Simply put, CDN Exchange is the present and future of online coin trading
It’s no secret that the few money and paper money markets have seen
decline in recent years. One of the main reasons for this is
as market leaders, we have failed to encourage dealers to
specific areas to support these markets. In the past, you could often find
specialists, for example, in Indian cents or Morgan dollars. Today we see
Certified Acceptance Corporation (CAC) with over $ 900,000 in market offers
for glued parts. If you have a $ 10 CAC approved gold coin,
there is a live auction for this on Exchange.
Your printed offers
CDN Exchange offers our members a space to support their main markets
which is reflected directly and immediately in our price database. Yes
your new bids exceed current levels, we usually get those new levels
within 24 hours and you can see how your bids affect the market within 24 hours

guides if applicable.
