R. Ingram Coins News

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...

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.

New coinssept 2015
