A warm welcome to this website, containing commemorative and historical medals, marking national occasions, as well as events of a more local or personal nature, together with a few coins and tokens.

An emphasis is placed on the condition of items offered and the avoidance of surface damage and wear, wherever possible, particularly in the case of medals, where edge knocks, nicks and other defects. including cleaning, mar the visual splendour of such items. Care is taken to avoid such items, and items can be returned, within seven days of receipt, if not entirely to satisfaction. Postage and insurance are charged at cost, which is scaled back for multiple orders.

The prices are net, but there is no 'Buyer's Premium,' as now exists at every auction house, where an additional 30% or more is frequently added to the hammer price.

Items are also wanted for outright purchase, and advice is available for those deciding upon the sale fo their collection.

The cat medals represent a collection that my wife Missi and I have been acquiring over many years and occasionally add to, when opportunity presents itself.

The Second Edition of my book British Comemorative Medals and their Values was published by Spink in 2010 and contains 2230 entries and more than 3000 coloured illustrations, interspersed throughout. They have been laid on silk-coated blue paper, which provides a pleasing backdrop to the medals themselves, which have been carefully selected for their superlative condition and attractive appearance.

     The book was published in an edition of two thousand, each individually numbered, and the cost, including postage and packing to anywhere in the world, is £180; though UK clients can benefit from purchasing their copy direct from the Royal Mint in Llantrisant, where copies are presently available at £150 plus postage, following a purchase made by them some time ago.   

It is a heavy book, weighing almost 2 kilos, and clients within the EU wishing to order a copy are advised to do so directly through the numismatic firms of F.R. Kunker, in Osnabruck, or Schulman in Amsterdam. Those in the U.S.A. can do so  through Hedley Betts in California, Kolbe & Fanning in Ohio, or Charles Davis in Boston; while in the Far East, Daruma Galleries in Tokyo maintain a stock of the book.

There will be no third edition, but it is hoped that a stand-alone listing of updated values will be produced at some point. 

For a brief preview of the book, simply click the Front Cover, below left, and turn the pages.  

Any questions - email or call.

Enjoy browsing and happy collecting!
