We are totally Covid secure as there is thick glass between you and us and only one person CAN get in at a time! Until Boris says otherwise, this is the way it must be. We have been buying large amounts of gold, silver and currency as the situation bites. We have been selling the odd bit of foreign currency, mainly euros for people going to Ireland or back to Europe due to Brexit.

Coins up to 1946

Up to and including 1946 UK silver coins really did contain silver. In fact up to 1919 the silver change in your pocket was 92.5% silver – the same as your silver chain or tea set.  You could’ve literally taken off 14 grams of your chain and you’d have had the same as a half crown.

In 1920 they ‘partially debased’ the coinage by making silver coins of only 50% silver.  The population was outraged.

We buy Silver Coins up to 1946

In 1946 they fully debased the coinage by making silver coins out of cupro nickel.

Now, silver has gone up in value so much that it is now worthwhile melting old silver coins for their silver content – and it’s not illegal as ‘old money’ was ‘called in’ after decimalisation. If you’ve got any foreign silver coins bring them in anyway and we’ll look them up or test them – as each country stopped using silver at different dates.

If you’re concerned that your silver coins are worth more numismatically, bring them in and we will look them up in the latest coins value booklet we have.  Then you can make a decision.
