We sell all manner of coins and
banknotes, with stocks varying depending on what material has
been purchased, what has been prepared for sale, and what has
been sold !
We buy virtually anything in coins. Quoted here is an extract from the advice aimed at charities selling coins and notes as a fundraising effort.

collecting coins can be very lucrative. (Many of the
charities from whom we buy stamps and coins
find that the coins now more than match their stamp
