COINS, MEDALS, and BANKNOTES
Although principally stamp dealers, we do also deal in coins, medals and banknotes. A variable general stock is held at our shop, and we are always interested in buying new stock. We do not specialise in any particular area, and many collectors (and dealers) look in on us regularly to see what is new.
Coins; we keep a range of British and Foreign,
cheap items at just a few pence up to scarcer specimens. Stock
organised by country or area, and we also have mixed bags and "pick
your own" boxes.
Banknotes; again a general stock is maintained, usually including a selection of the notes of the Scottish banks. See separate page.
Medals; often our weakest area of stock, we often seem to sell out very soon after stocking up !
Numismatic Covers; these fit into our philatelic stocks, and we almost always have some available. See a price list of some at this link.
Albums, Catalogues. Books and Supplies; we keep some of the popular coin albums and pages, plus plastic pockets, coin trays, coin cases, and similar items as standard stock. Some books and catalogues are stocked when they are published, others can easily be ordered as required.
Buying; we are always happy to be shown collections, accumulations, or single items with a view to purchase. We also operate popular regular
Auctions in Edinburgh. We hold a stamp auction every few weeks (and this usually includes a non-philatelic section, often with banknotes, medals, or coins). About every third sale we have a Stamps and Collectables Auction which comprises all manner of things apart from stamps. From time to time we hold specific specialised auctions of banknotes or coins. Click here for more information about auctions. Some indication of buying prices for British coins here.
If you are planning to bring in any material for us to
with a view to sale, auction, or valuation, please contact us
arrange a suitable time for an appointment. (You may be asked to
Charities; many charities collect quantities of coins
and Foreign, current and obsolete) which they then sell to us,
that this can be a very lucrative source of funds. Some do this
same time as collecting stamps
Gold Coins; we are happy to buy odd gold coins singly or as part of a collection. However, should a customer have a valuable holding of gold coins (i.e. at least about £1,000) we offer a brokerage service where we inspect and identify a customer's coins, and find a good buyer, normally very quickly, and obtaining as high a market value as you are likely to obtain anywhere. For this we simply charge a commission. The rate of commission is normally between 5% and 10% (+ v.a.t.), depending on the size and difficulty of the lot. We would always advise our fee before proceeding, and for very large sales our commission could be lower.
