Stamps & Coins
We have been fortunate over the years to have a steady flow of stamps and coins pass through the Exchange Saleroom, including many private collections. Most are sold within our specialist collectors sales however items of lesser value can also be offered in our more regular general auctions. Gold sovereigns and half sovereigns are frequently consigned and can be offered in both collectors and Antique & Fine Art sales.
Coins of interest to collectors often include those that circulated for only a brief time, coins with mint errors and especially beautiful or historically significant pieces. Coin collecting can be differentiated from numismatics, in that the latter is the systematic study of currency.
Stamp collecting has been one of the world's most popular hobbies since the late nineteenth century with the rapid growth of the postal service. Stamp collecting proved to be an almost perfect hobby for collectors because there was a never ending stream of new stamps as each country sought to advertise its distinctiveness through its stamps. Because some stamps became rare, a thriving international trade in stamps was created.
If you have any stamps or coins whether they are single items, small or large collections, then please discuss their value with one of our experts.
