Lots of coins sold, lots more added on

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on July 30th 2015

Our late Summer list 2015 has been online now for 3 weeks and sales have been excellent. The big change has been the interest in decimals; this was a peripheral area, but interest now is enormous, especial for Two Pounds, and Olympic 50p's.

We have recently added a great deal of new material, notably a lot of modern Maundy sets, but also plenty of silver proofs and a great deal of foreign coins, notably from the US and Canada. When we prepared for this list, we were really focused on getting all the key dates in, and at prices which normal people can afford.

Prices for coins were a little sluggish through 2014, but they have certainly bounced back this year. Even ordinary material has been going for seriously high prices. We ourselves attended a local auction earlier this year. It wasn't specifically a coin auction, but they had plenty of coins, across the board for sale. We were staggered at the prices being achieved, well, well above our selling prices in many cases. We came away with one minor lot, and are not tempted to return!

With interest rates very low, and set to stay low for the foreseeable future, investing in coins, is appealing to more and more people. We regularly get people who have given up on the banks, and lock, stock and barrel have jumped into coins, if they choose the right material, there is definitely gains to be made. We are always happy to give advice on investment potential, or indeed anything else. On a daily basis we get people thank us for giving a phone number and being willing to chat. We are. We can be contacted on 023 80324258. We are available on this number from 8am onwards, if we are not here, leave a message and we will be back to you asap.

As ever we hope you enjoy our site, if you do tell fellow collectors, if not tell us, and we will try to resolve the issue. Happy hunting.

Brand new list - brand new climate

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on July 2nd 2015

Our late Summer list 2015 is now online and we are delighted to report that our previous list was one of our best sellers ever. If you were someone who bought from us - thanks. You are part of our success story and we are truly appreciative. With this list, we really focused on getting all the key dates in, and at prices which normal people can afford.

The 1905 Half Crown is one of the famous coins of the 20th century. Most dealers won't have a single example, many other will have one and it'll be in AUNC condition and be priced at around £10,000. We have no problem with this and have a number of coins to this value, but most collectors in our experience, want one in and around fine, for a few hundred Pounds. In our current list we have 4, they are priced at between £375 and £795. I think sometimes in the coin world we need to get a dose of reality. If you read in the papers or read about "coin trends", you'll often see examples of what price Triple Unites are now going for compared to 20 or 30 years ago; often the conclusion is that they are a great investment. But for 90% of you people reading this, that may be interesting, but it is also completely irrelevant.

I will stress again, that we do sell expensive coins, we have an 1864 Copper Farthing for sale at £18,500 and we have large numbers of Gold coins, many priced in four, and some in five figures. But, and here is the big "but" we sell coins in all grades so if you only have £10 or £20 to spend, we still will have something for you. We hope you enjoy looking through our list, a hard copy is available if you want one. Should you have any queries we are always happy to hear from you.
