Selling coins and gold Sovereigns

Claim Form

If you're considering selling any gold Sovereigns or other coins, make sure you're getting a fair price.

Many gold dealers will only offer a price based on the bullion value of a gold sovereign, regardless of its condition or scarcity. Some specialist coin dealers even require you to advise them that a coin is particularly rare or collectable!

Can you value my sovereign over the telephone?

Unfortunately, it's practically impossible to do this. Valuations can vary hugely depending on the condition of the coin and its scarcity. There's nothing worse than over-valuing a customer's coin based on its described condition, only to down-value it once it's been received!

What if I change my mind?

You're under no obligation to sell to us. If you change your mind, we'll return your coin(s) via next day insured Royal Mail Special Delivery & we'll do it at our cost, not yours.
