About Government Auction

Government Auction was founded as a general resource to buying assets such as jewelry , gemstones, memorabilia, collectibles, art, prints, antiques, and vehicles throughout the United States. Most people don't realize there are hundreds of thousands of assets and valuables that are seized everyday and made available through various resources. Many of these confiscated assets are passed on to us for immediate liquidation. Some examples of how we acquire requisitioned objects are from bankruptcies, IRS, estate sales, trusts, and more.

Government Auction is the largest company of its kind and the only one in the United States that works closely with these agencies to acquire literally thousands of assets and confiscated goods, such as Ruby Gemstones, Sapphire Rings, and Men's President Rolex Watches, Mercedes Benz, and Gold Coins. In most cases we acquire these treasures at a fraction of their actual retail value. Once acquired these items are liquidated through the auction site. Clients are made up of just the everyday person who wants to buy a Diamond Bracelet, Pearl Strand Necklace, Sterling Silver Pink Sapphire Earrings, Oval Cut Emerald Gemstone Parcel, Remington Bronze Reissue at an unbeatable price.

All assets that we offer are normally at a 30% - 60% savings to the client. What this means is consumers are making a good investment immediately. By purchasing assets cheaply people can make a sizeable profit if they decide to resell it later on.

Government Auction is one of the most reputable jewelry and gem clearinghouse company in the U.S., with over 20 years of experience.
