    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    It consists of
    1 Some very old florins and half-crowns which contain a high proportion of silver.
    2 Old Thrupenny/Threepenny bits
    3 Specially minted Event Crowns and sovereigns
    4 Other

    Is anyone on this forum a collector or knows of one.

    I am reluctant to use Firms such as "we buy any Gold" etc

    I will also search the web and my locality (Maidenhead)
    I do not think auction is viable or to my liking but....

    If any of them are rare or particularly valuable then the likes of Spink or Sotheby's are probably your best bet, although it may be cheaper to auction yourself,its often the case that better prices are realised using professional auction houses. Collectors like a full description and a fair assessment of condition so it gives collectors more confidence than buying from the likes of eBay.

    They are not particularly valuable.

    However I have done some research and I think some of the older florins/half-crowns may be worth over 1 each and I have maybe 50.

    So a posh auction house would (I Think) not be interested.

    I have contacted some coin-shops and I may well visit for them to assess,
    The coins were collected and were in circulation so their condition is "variable"...
    We shall see !

    If there's any you're struggling with,I've got a Spink catalogue which will give a good indication of value,either put them on here or PM the details to me and I can give you an idea.

    Pre 1920 silver coins have 92.5% silver, 1920 - 1946 have 50% silver. I have always done well selling on eBay, usually getting more than scrap value. Only mint condition coins have an added value worth talking about.

    Recently got rid of a lot of old coins, mint coins and stamps. Took them to a specialist coin/stamp shop who hold monthly auctions.
