Posting Coins to Us
Selling gold sovereigns to us is very easy.
You may deliver them personally or use the post.
Since 1964 we have transacted much of our business by mail.
Sending coins to us by post is quite simple and reliable. Within the UK, we recommend the Royal Mail's Special Delivery service, which used to be called "registered".
On receipt we will agree a price with you if we have not already done so, and send a cheque by return first class post.
If you prefer, you are welcome to call at our showroom with coins for sale. There is no need to make an appointment, but if you have a large amount of coins, it is advisable to let us know in advance.

Notes on Table
It can be worthwhile to spend a few minutes working out the best way to split a delivery.
For example, when we send 100 krugerrands (approximately 3.5 kgs), we split them into 2 packets, each of which cost £10.10 each = £20.20, instead of 1 packet which would cost £22.55. We also get double the compensation amount into the bargain, our own goods transit insurance covers the balance.
If you do not have any separate insurance, it may be advisable to discuss with the Post Office the best way to send them
Note that Royal Mail's maximum compensation on "Recorded Delivery" is £26, but this excludes "valuables", which makes it almost useless!

Packing
Most people pack their coins securely, but occasionally we are surprised by how badly some people will pack their coins.
Try to wrap each coin separately if valuable, or to roll a quantity of coins in paper or plastic to form a cylinder. Plastic bank coin bags are ideal. Tape them up tightly after wrapping so that the coins cannot move around and scratch each other. Surround the roll with bubble wrap or tape it to cardboard so that it cannot move around inside the package. Try to use the smallest possible outer box or envelope to reduce the amount of slack inside.
