Coins & Medals

One of the oldest and most popular pastimes, coin collecting or 'numismatics' is known as the 'King of Hobbies'.

People have hoarded coins for their bullion value for as long as coins have been minted. Collecting coins for their artistic value can be traced back to the 14th century and is still as popular today as it was back then. Coin collecting unites generations with a shared passion for the past and can produce tangible long term rewards.

The value of medals can vary enormously depending upon a number of factors; rarity; condition; the notoriety of the recipient. Military medals awarded for extreme bravery or for a particular campaign or event are always of great interest to the collector as are awards to well-known individuals.

Whether you are looking for a coin to add to your collection or a medal for decorative purposes, or just curious about their value, our experts can give you advice and guidance regarding their worth and our sales offer a good array of items for you to choose from.
