R. Ingram Coins News

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:

COINS ONLINE 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!

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on December 22nd 2016

Hello all. Its been a very busy end to the year, I have only just noticed its been 2 months since our last post!

We have processed many orders & been sorting through many collections of coins and purchased quite a few of them. Please do bear us in mind should you have something to sell.

We have a new list coming out early in January which will contain some very desirable items indeed as well as a number of more affordable coins in the sub £20 price bracket.

We hope you enjoy the festive period and please note we will be open throughout so do please feel free to contact us. If not we look forward to speaking with you in 2017.

Merry Christmas and a Happy new year from Michael & Rendel and the rest of the team here at R. Ingram Coins.

 

 

 

 

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

NEW STOCK IN - Many Banknotes & World Coins

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on October 5th 2016

We have completely revised our Banknotes section and added hundreds of new items! We now have a massive range of Scottish notes and English notes. We also have a fantastic range of modern Silver proofs from around the world including Canadian, US and much more. We have also purchased a group of Australian mint sets which are surprisingly scarce.

Do visit our Website to see details, or e-mail us on [email protected]coins.com

 

Fantastic new list for September

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on September 1st 2016

Gold, Gold, Gold, its been a mad few weeks. We have never had demand like it. If you have ever thought of investing in Gold NOW is the time to do it.

100_2624[1]

The above 13 coin set from 2002 has the equivalent of over 18 and a half Sovereigns of Gold in it!

Our new list is a cracker, the biggest we have issued. We now have over 10,000 coins, of every sort. So get looking and we look forward to hearing from you.

Lots of new coins added

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on August 12th 2016

It’s been a great and very busy time for R. Ingram coins. We are well underway in compiling our next list; this will be out in early September and promises to be a real humdinger. Amongst many other items, we have some modern Gold £2 proofs, an 1893 £2 proof – these getting really scarce now. A £5 from 1902, a couple of lovely Guineas from 1664 and 1764, both slabbed as AU. We have some rare Gold Hammered coins, and when complete it will be our biggest and best, by a margin.

We have just added several hundred new foreign coins. These include many scarcer coins, and large new selections from USA, Indian and Germany besides many other countries. We have also added a few English coins, so do have a look.

Another first occurred last week, when we begun sponsoring our local football club; Eastleigh FC. Playing in the national league with the goal of getting promoted into the football league, we are very excited by this. Do come along and see a match, we will be happy to buy you a pint.

Meanwhile the price of Gold continues to soar with no sign of a let up. In these uncertain times there has never been a better time to invest in coins. As always we are here for a chat, to advise, and of course to sell you coins. Keep enjoying summer and watch out for the Eastleigh results.

Brexit and the new world order

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on June 30th 2016

What an amazing June we have had, our football team lost to Iceland, our rugby team hammered the Australians in their own back yard, our cricket team are moving towards the top of the world. Our country has voted for Brexit and the leaders of the two main parties are gone/going. What next!!

Well for us here at R. Ingram coins things don't look too different. We have just uploaded our new catalogue (list 121), and don't forget, if you would like a hard copy just let us know and we will be happy to send you one. Now whether you voted stay or leave, one thing is for sure, things will never be the same again. The key is not whether we leave the European Union, but whether we leave the single market. Should we do that virtually all economists are agreed this would severely damage the UK economy and it could take years, if ever, to fully recover.

So what does this mean for coin collecting? Well any uncertainty in the markets means inevitably Gold will strengthen, and those of you who are observant will notice all our cheapest priced Gold is sold. We have lots more Gold and given the potential for rises it is still competitively priced. Do have a look at the Sovereigns in particular if this interests you. More broadly, with interest rates expected to dip to 0% any time soon there has never been a time where alternative investments look more attractive, and coins are still a largely untapped resource. I think the coin market could easily explode in the next few months, and if it does this will bring us good and bad news. Good in that we will be selling coins hand over fist, and bad in that as prices rise, it is harder for us to purchase material.

Interesting times. Should you need any help or advice we are always here for you.

Our coming list and Facebook

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on June 8th 2016

Now into June, we are well into grading for our new catalogue which will be out at the beginning of July. We add stuff on a regular basis, so it is always worth looking to see what has been added, on a weekly, if not daily basis. Just click here to see the updated pdf.

It is worth checking us out on Facebook. One of our most popular post went as follows:

Afternoon everybody. We had a thing going on at my church recently, where we were talking about, how in your job, you can make a difference in the world. At first glance being a coin dealer is not a job that can affect much; its not like being a nurse or an undertaker or a teacher etc, etc. And yet...

You can make quite a big difference in this job. Most of the people we deal with are older men. I would guess that 40% of our clients are over 70 and maybe 20% over 80. As a result we regularly have people on our mailing lists die. It is the worst part of this job. Some of these folks we have got to know over many many years, we have talked to them about all sorts of things, and then they die, and its a sad feeling.

We often get the wife, or sometimes daughter say that the deceased really loved their coin collecting and receiving our catalogue and coins, was one of the highlights of their last few years. That always makes me feel good, its nice to know even doing this job, we can make a difference, and if we have lightened up any of your lives, even for just a few minutes, then I for one feel truly blessed.

We also list new coins, lots of historical stuff related to the coins we list. We post at least twice a day, and if you fancy being involved go here.

New list in a buoyant market place

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on February 24th 2016

Our list 119 Spring 2016 is now online. It's a great list, with lots of new items, right across the spectrum. We are now busy adding all the new pictures, these should be completed shortly. If you want pictures of anything that hasn't been pictured contact us and we will e-mail you as an attachment. The coin market is roaring at the moment, this is good news for sales, but means we have to work harder to get the stock in at the right price. We have done the work and are sure you will be pleased with the result.

As ever, we aim to stock the widest range of UK coins of anyone in the world. A bold aim, but one we do try to live up to, but we cannot stock everything so if you are looking for something we don't have TELL US . We will then source the item for you, and offer it to you when we have obtained it.

March 14th is a big date in our calendar as we will be activating 1000's of new online accounts. If we don't have your e-mail address, please send it to us, and we will do this for you also.  Happy hunting and we hope you find what you are looking for; we hope too that we hear from you. Have a great Spring.

VALENTINES DAY

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on February 12th 2016

Do make sure you tell your loved one how much they mean to you. It really makes a difference, and THEY NEED TO KNOW.

What's this got to do with coins I hear you ask? Well in truth, not a lot; except, there is something we need to tell you, and that is that things are really moving in the world of coins in 2016. Coin prices are sharply up this year, partly driven by the spectacular rise in Gold, which over recent months has moved from under £700 per Ounce to approaching £900 per Ounce. We have certainly noticed that the demand for our coins has gone through the roof.

We keep tabs on what is selling well and not so well, and in truth pretty much everything is selling. No surprise to hear that Gold is selling well, small Silver is always a big seller, and 3d's in particular are flying off the shelves, Copper and Bronze are sometimes a little slow, but not at the moment, and it's all grades, not just the star items, but Victoria Bronze Pennies in VF, Copper Half Pennies in fine, Farthings in any grade it's sell, sell, sell.

This means more than ever we need to buy and whether it's a valuable single coin, or an enormous collection you have stashed away in your loft, we are looking to purchase. It's easy to sell your coins to us.  So what are you waiting for? Lets get cracking...

 

.Gold1                               A good time for people who are collectors of Gold coins. Will Gold keep going up?                                                           Gold2

Time to invest in coins

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on January 6th 2016

It’s that time of year, when many people are making a fresh start. In particular for savers especially, there is a desperation to earn more on their money than they did with the banks in 2015. Not difficult as many saver rates were paying less than 1%.

A number of investor advisors have been suggesting that the collectables market might be a decent alternative place to put cash. Coins are one of the main collectables, and we have seen over recent months, lots of people, just en block transferring money from a savings account and putting it into coins. A look at recent Spinks can show you why, with a huge increase in the value of top grade coins.

Not sure how the new year will play out, but if you have money sitting around doing absolutely nothing, you could do worse than give us a call. 023 80324258. By a happy coincidence we have just uploaded our New Year 2016 catalogue onto our website and you can see that here. It is our most extensive ever list and has lots of great coins which scream INVESTMENT. Have a good look through the list, and if you should have any questions feel free to call, write or e-mail us. We still use the dog and bone and that number once again 023 80324258.

Happy Christmas to all customers!

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on December 21st 2015

It’s been a great year, thank you.

It may be Christmas, but we don’t stop working. (The website, is of course, online 24/7), and there is usually someone here to answer queries or take orders. If not, do leave a message and we will get back to you usually the same day. Emails are checked several times daily.  

Recently we were asked about die letters. These occur rarely, but notably do so on the 1862 Half Penny. The letters A, B, and C are placed by the lighthouse. These letters were used so the Royal Mint could gauge how quickly the Half Penny dies were wearing. Die letter C, is the rarest, followed by die letter B, with A being the commonest, though still exceedingly rare. We've actually got all 3. For those looking to buy one, at the top end we have a die letter C slabbed by CGS VF40 for £3250, if your budget doesn’t stretch that far, we can do you die letter A or B, in Fair to Fine for £550. If you would like to take a look at our complete range of Half Pennies you will see many other interesting varieties and dates as well.

We hope to hear from you in 2016, if not before!

Coins for all occasions...

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on November 24th 2015

People buy coins off us for many different purposes. We have a large number of serious numismatists who have often been collecting for decades. They have the coin bug and we help them with their collection. We also sell a lot of cheaper items to coin collectors who may have just started in their hobby or are younger collectors.

We also sell a number of items as presents, birthday, christening and (its not too far away!) Christmas. We have supplied coins for period dramas.. We sell a large number of bulk lots to people who either want lots of coins or perhaps are looking to sell them on or trade them. In short, if you want coins, we do not mind why - we are happy to supply them!

Recently we had a first though. A young couple asked us for a large quantity of pre decimal pennies to use as flooring for a cloakroom. I must be honest, this is not something we had heard of previously, but a quick look on google shows that "(penny floors" are not uncommon. We will be very interested in seeing the finished article and will endeavour to supply photos when it has been completed!

Coins for all occasions indeed!

In our new list we have lots of slabs!

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on November 5th 2015

Our new Winter catalogue is now online and it contains lots and lots of slabbed coins. For those unfamiliar with slabbed coins, these are graded independently, usually by American companies conforming to US grading standards. The coins are contained in a hard plastic case with a grade ranging from MS-0 to MS-70 where VF begins at MS-20, EF at MS-40, AU at MS-50 and Unc at MS-60.

We sell what you want to buy, and at the current time, lots of you want to buy slabbed coins. When we started 19 years ago, they were very unusual, you rarely saw them, and when you did they were regarded as "weird American stuff", well they are weird no more.

We are often asked if we slab coins, and the short answer is no. We sell both slabbed and raw (non slabbed) coins, but if you buy raw, you'll have to find your own slabbing company and get it done yourself. There are plenty of them, many in the US, but a number in various European countries, many with UK representatives. It's your choice, but if you want them pre slabbed, check out our website. You'll see a good selection.

November list coming soon

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on October 15th 2015

Since we begun in September 1997, we have produced 116 lists and in a few weeks we will be uploading and sending out list 117. Always we have striven to make each list bigger and better than the last. We think we are largely successful in this. One of our motives is to give you the best choice available. We have all seen dealers lists with 3 Gothic Florins, priced at £350, £550 and £800; we list these coins too, but we will list a couple of hundred Gothic florins, catering for both the die collector, and the person looking to spend a tenner. We do try to live in the real world.

That said investments in coins are booming, and we are advising people on a weekly basis, who have made the decision to take funds out of the banks or building societies, where their money is earning virtually nothing, into coins, which with some wise guidance, can prove very profitable indeed. If this is something that appeals to you, contact us by phone, e-mail or letter. It will be a decision you won't regret.

Autumn 2015 list upload - biggest ever!

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on September 4th 2015

Well Summer has gone already, that didn’t last long did it? The good news is we have just uploaded our biggest ever listing. We have in excess of 9,000 coins now, including lots of additional foreign, especially US and Canadian. We have bought in some lovely Silver collections, with a number of modern Maundy sets, and a stunning range of small Silver. A vast selection of early Copper, much of it lowish grade and therefore affordable. We have also put together the finest collection of Third Farthings ever assembled, all of it slabbed by PCGS. As well as this we have gathered in a very large selection of rare early Copper, much of it quite cheap so do make sure you lookout for that.

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.

The coin market is a changing

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on May 20th 2015

2014 was quiet a challenging year for the coin market. In truth there was a glut of good material and falling Gold and Silver prices led to prices stabilising and in some areas falling. I remember discussing this with another dealer last Summer and we were musing when this might change. Well folks things HAVE changed. This year auction after auction and dealer after dealer have been issuing smaller lists, and with the same numbers seeking less coins, prices have been going up. Even really ordinary stuff has been getting respectable prices, and even 1970's proof sets are fetching twice what they were just 6 months ago.

We have strived, and succeeded in bucking the trend. Our Summer 2015 catalogue has been our biggest and best ever, and we have thoroughly enjoyed putting it together. We love coins and when there is a shortage, we work twice as hard to get material in. So if you have a nice collection, we are interested. Auctions are fine if you are happy to lose upwards of 35% in premium, and have 6 months to wait for payment. With us no fees and immediate payment. So get in touch if you have something for sale.

If you have a good look you'll find all sorts of material in our list. No matter what you collect (unless it's stamps or pottery!), as long as it's COINS we'll have something for you. We've lots of lovely Gold, including an Ansell Sovereign, the extremely rare Australian Half Penny of 1923,  a fantastic early Crown collection, much of it slabbed, lots of new Half Crowns, including a Cromwell, our normal stash of small Silver, lots of Copper and Bronze, of course, lots of excessively rare hammered, and we even have the complete collection of Olympic 50P's. If you really can't find anything, you aren't trying hard enough!

Do contact us and lets have a chat. Here's hoping you enjoy what you see. As ever feedback is hugely appreciated.
