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.

Spring 2015 catalogue now uploaded

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on February 27th 2015

Hi all,

We are delighted to inform you that our new Spring list has been uploaded, and it is a cracker. There has been a dearth of material in the coin world in 2015, but R. INGRAM COINS are bucking the trend, and you'll see lots and lots of new exciting items in this list. Just to give you a few tasters:

Loads of nice slabs, including a number of Half Crowns: there's a 1739 (MS62) and a 1685 (AU58). If you like slabs there is plenty here for you. As always much Gold, many new Sovereigns, including another 1823. We have bought in a nice collection of Crowns, a couple of superb ones from 1700, an 1847 and a good range of Wreaths. Right through the English milled series we have a huge range, and as always we don't just cater for the rich and super rich, there's lots here for people on modest incomes.


We have always specialised on getting the early rare English monarchs and we have our first ever Harthacnut Penny, all be it thrice holed! Many seriously rare pieces, that you'll do well to find on any other dealers list.

For those who like foreign coins, there is a big expansion too. We have an excellent range of US coins, and have for this issue we have bought a really extensive selection of Canadian. In fact no matter what you collect, you should find something of interest. We are always looking for feedback, so please do get in touch and tell us what you think. Happy hunting.

New Year 2015 list now online.

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on January 6th 2015

A Brand New Year and a brand new list. Our New Year 2015 catalogue has now been uploaded, it's number 112 and one of our best. This one covers all bases, we've got our usual extensive range of Gold, Silver, Copper and Bronze as well as many proofs. There is the 1911 Half Sovereign, the 1893 Crown, the 1839 Sixpence, to name but three. We also have a mid grade Northumberland Shilling,  and lots of choice and rare coins throughout the English series, both hammered and milled. But we also have a lot of material that we don't always list online. So if you collect Roman, or Foreign coins you are in luck as we have bought extensive collections of both, and many are fairly easy on the pocket.

Sadly not in our current list:


So welcome to our site, have a good look round. Should you have any queries you can always e-mail us at: [email protected]coins.com or use the telephone 023 80324258. Most websites dislike the phone NOT US. We look forward to hearing from you.

Happy New Year!

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on December 30th 2014

So here we are, nearly at the end of 2014. Its been a hugely eventful one for us, probably the busiest in our history. Our new website went online on February 20th, we've had the good fortune to purchase some incredible collections and thanks to YOU, we have found thousands of new homes for many thousands of coins. Our New Year 2015 catalogue will be out in early January, in the meantime enjoy the New Year celebrations and keep up your interest in Numismatics, the king of hobbies.

More Roman & World coins on web-site!

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on November 26th 2014

Thanks for reading this. List 111 has been online now for three weeks or so, we have achieved record sales, thanks to all who have contributed. Our site is not a static site however, the list is constantly changing. All sold coins are immediately deleted, and in just the last few days, we have added many hundreds of new Foreign and Roman coins. Many of these are at the cheaper end of the scale, so ideal if you are lacking Christmas presents.

We have updated the front page of our site, and we hope you like the new layout, we are always keen to receive feedback, good or bad; do let us know what you think.


If you don't we suggest you follow us on Facebook, we post several times a day on a variety of topics, here is a recent one:

I was talking to someone recently, who said that if you collect coins, you've obviously got lots of money you don't need and "what a pity you couldn't do something useful with it." When I queried what he meant by "something useful", he replied "well you could give it to the poor to start with." This opens up a can of worms I don't wish to open, but it does presuppose that if you are poor, that you don't collect coins.

Now I do fully accept if you are "poor" by UN standards ie you don't have enough money to "feed and clothe a family" you clearly aren't going to be buying coins, but in a society where even so called poor people can afford Sky sports (£35+ a month), to play bingo (£10-£100 a week plus), go to the pub (easily spend £10 up to a lot more in a single night), and even to follow my beloved Eastleigh Football club, not normally seen as the preserve of the rich, but it does cost you, when you add in travel, programme and a burger £20-25 to see a single match. I am not sure I concur that coin collecting is for the rich.

We have recently grading the following Shillings and we priced them as follows:
1820 NFair £5
1872 Fair £5
1873 NF £9.50
1838 YH by Lauer £7.50
1897 GF £6
1908 NF £9.50
1912 Fine £6
1913 Fine £7.50...you get my drift. So I don't accept that coin collecting is only for the rich; but I do accept that it is obviously true only the rich will buy the most expensive coins...just as they will buy the most expensive houses, cars, holidays, boats, jewellery etc etc. Why pick on coins?
