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.

Items can be returned within ten 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 additional 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, while advice can also be given to those preferring to place their items in auction, should that be the preferred route of sale.

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 British Comemorative Medals and their Values was published by Spink in 2010 and contains 2230 entries and more than 3000 coloured illustrations, interspersed throughout, all of which have been laid on silk-coated blue paper. It provides a pleasing backdrop to the objects themselves, all of which have been carefully selected for their superlative condition and attractive appearance. The book was published in an edition of 2000, each bearing an  individual number. 

The cost of the book, including postage and packing to anywhere in the world, is £180, but UK clients can benefit from purchasing their copy direct from the Royal Mint in Llantrisant, where copies are presently still available at £140 plus postage, following a purchase made by them some time ago.   

Weighing almost 2 kilos, it is a heavy book 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 either through Hedley Betts in California, Kolbe & Fanning in Ohio, or Charles Davis in Boston; while in the Far East, Daruma Galleries in Tokyo similarly maintain a stock of the book.

While there are no plans for a third edition, it is hoped that a stand-alone listing of updated values will be produced at some time in the foreseeable future.

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!
