Frequently Asked Questions



Q.     Do You buy Coins and medallions?


           Yes! We are active buyers of all numismatic material and try to keep a varied selection of items available for purchase. Please get in touch, we can arrange to come out to you to assess your items in person, via email, phone or you can bring your items over to us (by prior arrangement)


 Q.    How do I get the most for my coins?


We are completely transparent about your options - we know that selling to us is not your only option. If we think you would be much better off selling your particular items elsewhere or in a specialist auction we will tell you - as simple as that. In most cases however,  we can give you the most cost effective way to maximise the return on your coins with minimum effort from you. High fees at auction (Sellers commission is usually between 5 - 20%+VAT, and buyers 20 - 25% +VAT - so the spread between what a buyer pays and what a seller gets can be as much as 50%!) mean you will nearly always end up with more money in your pocket selling directly to us rather than via auction. 




Q.     Do you have a physical shop as well as an online store?

           

No, our address is just a mail box - a physical shop would simply be too costly. We are happy to make appointments to meet in person at our secure separate office or increasingly often in the comfort of your own home. Sometimes the local Coffee shop makes a useful space to view smaller collections!



Q.  Do you do valuations?


Certainly, valuations and informal advice are free of charge and without commitment


Q.  Do you deal in 50 pences and other modern decimal coins?


 Modern coins from loose change in circulation are the only coins we do not buy. All other modern issues including year sets, proof sets and silver and gold sets are all of interest.
