Va. treasury putting unclaimed coins, jewelry up for auction
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Jewelry, coins, electronics and collectables will be up for auction through May during a state auction of unclaimed property.
The Virginia Department of the Treasury says nearly 1,200 items will be up for grabs in the so-called tangible property auction. All bidding is done online at the following website:
under the heading "VA Treasury Dept. Unclaimed Property Auction Online."
Bidders must register on the site to participate in the auction.
A preview day will be held May 12 in Richmond. Items up for auction will be on display. The auction concludes that day.
The department's unclaimed property program returned more than $45 million in missing and unclaimed money in 2014.
