Buy & Sell Old British & Foreign Gold and Silver Coins
When you want to sell gold and silver coins we are the first choice as coin buyers of all denominations and all periods. Tel 0121 448 0488 for more info. We also buy probate coins in silver and gold. When you want to sell gold and silver coins please be aware that many coin dealers offer good prices on the phone, but as soon as they have your coins in their hands they start to reduce their offer based on condition. Many pay below scrap silver or gold price and that way if they cannot sell the coins as collectables they make their profit by scrapping them in with Gold and Silver buyers like us. Therefore our advice when you want to sell coins is to cut out the middle-men.
We pay our calculator price regardless of condition . More often than not we pay a great deal more for gold and silver coins than coin dealers who tend to offer below scrap. That way if they cannot sell them as collectables they sell them on to us. Gold coins we buy include Sovereigns, Half-Sovereigns, Krugerrands, Angels, Guineas, Maples, in fact we buy all gold coins regardless of condition.
UK Silver Coins - Sell Silver Coins British & Foreign
NB British Silver coins TO compare our coin prices with a "£1 face value" offer from a coin dealer just get our gold and precious metals price calculator price for 112 grams after selecting the purity of your coins eg 925 for pre-1920 coins and 500 for 1920-1946 coins.
Here's the logic...A crown is a 1/4 of an old pound and weighs 28 grams so there are 4 of them in an old pound. A crown weighs 28grams so there are 4 x 28 grams in a pound ie 112 grams But remember your coins wil be worn so the offer will be somewhat less in reality. If you have coins to sell including foreign silver coins and are unsure what you are doing or need more info then call us on 0121 448 0488
As at 02/07/2020 we were paying 27 times face value for 50% coins and 54 times face value for 925 or sterling coins.
We buy all British and Foreign silver coins including silver shillings, crowns, sixpences, florins, marks, guilders, francs, dollars, lire, dinar roubles and rupees.
When you want to sell silver coins you'd think you'd get a better price from a Coin Dealer? That is not the case! Many of our customers are surprised at the prices they receive for their silver coins It's not rocket science. Many dealers want to pay below true scrap price for silver coins . Others try to buy them at face value, which does NOT give you the best price. The prices we pay are nine times out of ten higher than coin dealer prices. nb

All those old coins you have in your house may well be worth a small fortune! Old coins , British or Foreign are worth money!!!

Prior to 1920 British silver coins contained high purity, 92.5% (Sterling) silver.
From 1920 to 1946, British silver coins contained 50% silver.
From 1947 onwards, some denominations of British pre-decimal coins issued for circulation were "silver-colored," however these coins were made of copper-nickel, and contained no silver.
In addition, there have been some silver decimal coins minted in limited quantities as commemorative or bullion issues, typically in Proof condition; these coins were not intended for circulation.
The standard circulating denominations of pre-decimal British coins from 1800 to 1946 which contained 92.5% or 50% silver, included threepences, sixpences, shillings, florins, two shillings, halfcrowns, double florins, and crowns and we buy them all .
