London Coins LTD is part of the London Coins (Holdings) Group LTD which owns London Coins LTD and has 51% ownership of CGS (Coin Grading Services LTD) Britain's first third party grading and encapsulation company.

London Coins LTD main core business activity is the auctioneering of all numismatic items from any country and any era, the auctioneering of paper money from any country and any era, medals both military and commemorative and bonds and shares. We are experts at maximising the sale levels of all such items both single items with values ranging from hundreds to tens of thousands of pounds and accumulations and collections where we are regarded as "bulk lot" specialists. We have a dedicated section in our catalogues for modern cased and proof items such as Royal Mint and Westminster issues and a large and active client list for these. Our Monday valuation clinics at New Ash Green Kent allow an opportunity for a free appraisal by our director and chief valuations expert Stephen Lockett who has been active in the numismatic market since 1982. At our valuation clinics a valuation based on current auction realisation expectations is freely given, and a recommendation for those intending to sell whether to consign to auction or consider a private treaty price. London Coins LTD are private treaty purchases of numismatic material as well as auctioneers so can offer both options, with immediate settlement available for private treaty deals.

London Coins are stockists of high grade English Milled coins, and gold sovereigns at bullion related prices and price lists of these can be found on this web site. We also service wants list for English Milled coins in certified third party CGS grades.

We offer information regarding coins as an investment, and a portfolio service for those whose primary interest in coins is as a vehicle of wealth creation.

We are regular attendees at major Coin Shows in the UK and overseas.

We are members of The British Numismatic Trade Association, and Stephen Lockett is a life member of the American Numismatic Association.

General
All lots are strictly graded by the Auctioneers. At the end of each lot, in brackets, is an estimate of what, in the Auctioneer's opinion, a lot may make. This is neither a reserve nor a guarantee of the value.

A buyers premium of 17% will be added to the hammer price of each lot.

Viewing of Lots
Lots will be available to view at the Bracknell Grange Hotel, by appointment at our offices in Kent, and at coin shows we attend in the midlands and Yorkshire please see the current catalogue for details or contact us. We always show a variety of lots at The Cedar Court Hotel coins show in Wakefield the last Sunday of the month prior to the sale, but you should contact us to ensure we will be bringing the lots you wish to view.

Room Attendance
Please see our related page New To Auctions and if you are attending the sale for the first time please bring proof of your address and ID.
Authenticity
All lots are offered genuine (unless stated) and have been authenticated by ourselves. If any items are later proven to be not authentic we will take them back and issue a full refund. We are members of the British Numismatic Trade Association whose members must follow strict guidelines concerning authenticity and returns. Third party graded and encapsulated coins ("slabbed" coins) have authenticity guarantees from the grading company concerned.

The following bid steps will be adhered to at the auctioneers discretion.

From 0 - £50 £2 steps
From £50 - £100 £5 steps
From £100 - £200 £10 steps
From £200 - £500 £20 steps.

For lots that are being bid for above £500 we do accept a "CUT" bid. In this case a bidder may state "CUT" which means the bidder wishes to bid at half the normal bid step, however this is then the bidder's last bid and no further bids will be taken from the bidder.
If you wish to make a bid outside of these steps then you may submit a written bid.

Written and Proxy Bids
We reserve the right to round down bids that are less than 5% increment over our published bid steps. So bids such as £101 , £1,005, £10,010 may be rounded down to £100 £1,000 and £10,000 respectively, this can mean that a bid that has been received prior to any rounded bid that was at the normal bid step can take preference.

Proxy Bidding
If you are not attending the sale you may contact us prior to the sale with any bids you would like us to action.

As part of our continuing program of quality improvement, it will be our policy regardless of the method of communication used (post, email, fax or phone) to return to each bidder a list of the bids we have entered into our system. We can receive up to 5,000 individual bids prior to each sale, they are input twice, the second time by a different operative by way of verification, but we believe it may still be useful for bidders to receive feedback of what bids from them we have input.

This service will allow each bidder to verify we have processed the bids correctly, and also, in the rare event of post or electronic communication going astray, the absence of a returned notification could indicate that the bids have not been input and may not have been received by us.

Therefore, if within 5 working days from receipt of your bids you have received no notification, we strongly recommend you contact us to query the safe receipt of the bids.
