Coin Auctions & Valuations Overview


Our seasoned specialist Stephen Sparrow has a deep understanding of the nuances of the coins and banknotes market and whether you are interested in buying or selling he would be delighted to hear from you.

Collectible Coins 

Collectible is closely related to value when it comes to auctions. If a coin is highly sought after, then it will naturally command a high price at auction. If coins are not of interest to collectors, there will be no demand for the item at auction. So before submitting coins for auction, researching the likely demand is an important first step. If you are unsure of the value and believe your coins might be worth submitting for auction then our coins experts are on hand to provide a valuation. 

What Coins Can Be Considered Valuable?

Coins from Ancient Greece as well as Roman examples even through to some more modern currency including banknotes, tokens and medallions can be considered valuable. As with any collectible item sold at auction, much will depend on the rarity of the coin, its significance within its historical era and what it is made from, gold guinea coins for example will command a higher price at auction.

Coins that are not considered of value are old 50 pence coins and many special edition coins released within the last 30 years that have seen wide distribution. Where coins are deemed to be of value, our coins auction department has a strong track record and has achieved notable results for clients selling their coin collections.
