Spring list uploaded

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on March 5th 2018

We are delighted to announce that we have just uploaded our Spring list 131 to our website and we hope you will find time to have a good look at it. Like everyone else, recent times have all been about the snow. We have lived in Southampton since 1980 and I am not sure we have ever experienced anything like it. Certainly it has been problematic posting out orders, because if the post offices aren’t open, we can’t use them! Nonetheless, the hope is that things will return to normal in the next few days, and certainly by the time we post our hard copies out, which is scheduled to be in a week or so’s time.

If you do get a chance to look at the new list, you will find a record number of items listed. The figure is close to 11,500. Because we do have such a huge stock, not all of it can squeeze into our catalogue. That runs to 64 pages of A4 text, but we do spill to several sheets beyond that. However the pdf is the full listing and is the place to go if you want to see everything.

What is most notable about the new list is the amazing variety of items on offer. The biggest growth areas have been in Hammered, especially a vast collection of Charles and James Farthings, virtually all the Peck numbers are covered so if you collect these, this is the list for you. We have also added, stacks of Banknotes, plenty of US, we have a new 5 Guineas from 1688, and plenty of Gold, Silver, Copper and Bronze as per usual. Notably we have bought in nice collections of Shillings and Silver Threepences. Our Foreign selection is ever expanding too, and covers about 25% of the complete listing.

Over the 21 years of our existence our catalogue size and shape has changed, and we are now publishing an A4 size catalogues. We began this with list 129 in response to collectors telling us that they were struggling to read the print. We are thus continuing with this size for the forseeable future. If you would like a copy just let us know.

As ever our new catalogue was a pleasure to put together, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. We always love to hear your feedback, so do contact us.

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on November 17th 2017

We have recently uploaded list 129 to our website and we hope you will find time to peruse it. We always try to have a very extensive listing, and this one certainly is that. It has over 11,200 coins, our record number ever. So much have we got, that a sizeable chunk has had to be omitted from our 64 page catalogue. more on that below. What is most notable about the new list is the sheer variety on offer. The two biggest growth areas have been in Decimals and Foreign coins. A few years ago, we sold very few Decimals, in truth they were regarded as the "poor mans collection". No longer, sparked by the Olympic 50p issues, we now sell a huge amount of Decimals and many command serious prices. Modern proof sets are now sought after. We have the collectors sets from 2013-2017 for between £175 and £260 each, and we are not expensive. We now devote about a third of our entire listing to foreign coins, we may be leaving the EU, but interest in all things foreign is growing in leaps and bounds.

Over the 20 years of our existence our catalogue size and shape has changed, and this issue sees it become an A4 size. We have had many comments over recent time to the effect that some folk struggle to read the print. We ourselves have sometimes had difficulty,  so we have finally done what many have asked and increased the size. Still 64 pages long, it is now much easier to read, though less handy to pop into your back pocket! The change has come because you our customers requested it, and we do need your feedback. So good or bad, tell us what you think, and if enough of you don't like the new size, then we will return to the smaller size.

In these days of buying online, we do realize that many of you no longer require a paper copy, and that's fine; however many of you do. The internet is great, but nothing beats sitting in a comfy chair, with a glass of whatever floats your boat, and looking through a catalogue. We do know many of you feel that way, because you tell us. Many are concerned we will stop producing lists. YOU HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT, we plan to continue lists, every couple of months for the foreseeable future. It is true that most dealers no longer issue catalogues, but we do and are proud to do so. You can compromise, if you like looking at a list, but don't want a paper copy, you can browse our  pdf. This is from which we produce our list. You get an added bonus as the pdf carries our full listing, not just that which can be squeezed into 64 pages.

Our new catalogue was a pleasure to put together, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. The new catalogue is superb, though we say it ourselves, with lots and lots of new material, including much Silver, Copper and Foreign. We hope you enjoy it and we do love to hear your feedback, so do contact us.  And if you should want a hard copy of our catalogue, just let us know and we will be delighted to add you to our mailing list.

A new list is here...

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on September 29th 2017

Hi all,

Our new list is now out! Its stacked full of coins as usual, Lots of quality English milled, decimals, new World coins, the list goes on. Apologies for the delay - those of you who are observant or extremely geekish(!) might have noticed that this update has been 3 months since the last one, so why the extra month?

We began R. Ingram coins back in September 1997. Since then pretty much every two months we have issued a catalogue. Initially it was a very small affair; this has grown in leaps and bounds and our catalogues now feature 64 pages and nearly 11,000 coins. Most dealers no longer issue catalogues, but we do and are proud to do so. Many people these days are happy to look at the website and we do have a  pdf which you can view. This is from which we produce our list, with a few added coins that couldn’t quite be squeezed into 64 pages.

Rendel and his wife have recently given birth to their second child, Charlie Robert  (Michaels 10th grandchild!), he is a lovely little fella, but was born with a major metabolic disorder. The net result of this was a great deal of worry and even greater amount of time in hospital. Rendel and his wife were staying in hospital accommodation for some days, and Michael was visiting on most days! This meant that we struggled to do the day to day work, and orders did take a little longer than usual. Thanks to all who were very understanding and had no problems with the slight delays this has caused, Charlie is looking up as he enters his 7th week on planet earth, and we now back to our usual routine.

The new catalogue is superb, though we say it ourselves, with lots and lots of new material, including much Silver, Copper and Foreign. We hope you enjoy it and we do love to hear your feedback, so do contact us. We hope list 128 is our most successful ever, but the last few weeks have taught us, that whilst that would be nice, some things in life are far more important.

R. Ingram Coins - list 127 now online

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on June 28th 2017

These have been very exciting and, sometimes, harrowing times as well. The awful terrorist attacks and the dreadful Grenfell Towers disaster, plus all the fallout from that has led us all to feel a little nervous as we look to the future. We have not been helped, by having a very uncertain political situation, and the start of the Brexit negotiations; when Confucius wished his enemies interesting times, it was not just with irony!

Despite all of the above, having shed our tears, having helped, where we can, we have to try to live a life with some semblance of normality, and here is where it can get very difficult. We have just released catalogue number 127 (the late Summer edition), and it really is by far and away our most extensive list. Now we are not soothsayers or predictors of future trends. We can be certain of very little at the moment, all we can do is to look at the past to try to gain some indicator for the future. So what is likely given the crazy state of the world in mid 2017:

Gold to increase in value is a fair bet. In the last 2,500 years people and institutions have always turned to Gold when they didn’t know what to do.

Interest rates will rise. That is fairly obvious given they have been so low for so long. With inflation nudging 3% that is just a matter of time.

With antiques, in times of squeeze, people tend to buy the rare stuff. The stuff that we are unlikely to turn up a whole new source of, so expect the current rise in pre 1927 proof sets, the increase in the value of Gothic crowns and the huge demand for Maundy sets to continue.

We always say though when people ask us, what they should buy, you should buy what you like. It’s all very well buying as an investment, but if you don’t really like what you are buying, at some point you will sell and go for what you do like, and that can be expensive. So whatever you do, make sure you are buying what you like. And let’s be fair these increasingly valuable items are lovely. Who would not enjoy a Maundy set from any period, a top grade Gothic crown is a superb example of the majestic Gothic architecture, and the old proof sets are lovely to look at.

So enjoy our new list, do let us know what you think, and whatever else you do, make sure you enjoy your family, while you can; for none of us know what lies round the corner.

New catalogue - Brexit underway - general election - What does it all mean?

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on April 25th 2017

These are exciting times, not just for us as we release our 126th catalogue, but its all change; we really do have a new world order. So what does all this mean for coins? Uncertain times equals  volatile markets, volatile markets equals a chance to make money. If you make right decisions, you could make a fortune. And people have in recent times been making a lot of money on coins. The boom area at the moment is proof sets. Not so long ago you could pick up the 4 coin Gold set from 1937 for around £3,500. These sets have been selling for anything up to £20,000! We currently have one for £14,500. Not cheap, but very reasonable in todays surging markets. Other proof sets to be doing very well are the 1911, 1893, 1887 and all those before then. If they can be in the original box, in immaculate condition, you are sitting on a Gold mine.

In a sense though, the key is to buy the coins, before they surge. There are no guarantees in life, but in our opinion, the next big thing, will come from UK Silver coinsHalf Crowns,  Florins, Shillings, and 6ds have a long way to go before prices start to fall back. Maundy money is a superb investment. We are selling Victorian Young Head sets in top condition, for under £300 in some cases, and we have a nice range for barely more than this. I am as sure as I can be, these sets will rise rapidly. People have a lot of money to invest right now, banks are paying very low interest, and it is our view that English Silver coins could be a very profitable investment.

Our new list is a cracker. We have of course, a vast array of Silver, much Gold and we always buy in plenty of Copper and Bronze, which is always popular. We haven't forgotten you hammered enthusiasts out there, and we also have a large selection of Foreign coins, should you have more eclectic tastes. We hope you enjoy our list and look forward to speaking with some of you.

New internet coin forum!

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on January 27th 2017

One thing 20 years a coin dealer has taught us, is that people love talking about coins. They love exploring the history, seeing the pictures, and asking 1001 questions! We don’t know all the answers and we don’t always have the time. For a long time now you have been asking that we start a coin forum. Well after some planning and feedback here it is. You can go to the forum:


 We need to stress that this is YOUR forum. It needs to be legal, it needs to have at least some link to coins, other than that, you can post whatever you like. To a degree our Facebook site covers some of these areas, a recent topic which talked about how to become a coin dealer, received an enormous response, but with a forum you can take the subject as far as you want to. Have a look at our Facebook and Twitter.

 To some degree we are flying by the seat of our pants, let’s see how we get on and if we need to change it we will. Feel free to give us any feedback on this – our e-mail is [email protected]coins.com

 Thanks for all your interest in our current list. A fantastic response, do keep browsing as we regularly add new stock.

New Year 2017 New list uploaded!

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on January 6th 2017

A happy New year to everybody. Our New Year list 124 has now been uploaded, and this is by far our biggest and best. We have no less than 5 Five Guineas, including two corkers. We’ve  bought in plenty of new Gold, including much pre Victorian and some nice French. We have also listed plenty of new slabs, including an Ansell AU55, and lots of Bank Tokens.  We have also added some lovely Crowns, including super 1723, 1739 and the 1746 proof; also large collections of Silver covering all the denominations, but especially Half Crowns and small Silver. As ever plenty of Copper and Bronze and lots of Hammered. If you collect Foreign coins, we have bought in a vast range of it, including much US, and New Zealand.

 We are really looking forward to 2017. With Brexit and Trump sure to be issues, a very volatile market, which has seen gold swinging wildly in recent times; we are sure that coins as an investment will continue to surge. As ever we would love to hear from you. Lots of ways to contact us. Please do.



Please note you may well have received an email from us on December 8th with details of your new online account.  Happy collecting. 



2016 is nearly over!

Top quality English coins are us

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on October 28th 2016

We have always prided ourselves on keeping the most extensive selection of UK coins in the world, bar none. Its been our modus operandi since we began in 1997. If you want a cheap clear date 1905 Half Crown or a lower grade 1863 Sixpence, no problem, these are our stock in trade. If you want that key date, we are the people to contact. However recent times have seen us expand somewhat, and we have moved into dealing in some very choice and high value items.

Our new Winter 2016 catalogue, which we have just uploaded has some cracking material. We have a couple of 5 Guineas, always very desirable, a couple of superb 2 Guineas, one of the finest known 1664 Guineas, stacks and stacks of other gold coins, and with Gold going up and up in the wake of the Brexit vote, many of you have turned here for an investment. Its not just gold, we have some wonderful Crowns from 1662, 1679, 1687, 1692, 1700 and the list really does go on and on.

We hope you enjoy looking through our list, in the unlikely event that you find nothing of interest (you must try a little harder!), do still contact us, as we have thousands of coins which are not listed, many will never be listed, and we may well be able super selection of rare and choice coins. Don't miss out have a thorough look today.2016-10-28 14.53.13
