Coins, Medals & Militaria

Twice-yearly Coins, Medals & Militaria sales, which take place on the Fridays prior to our June and December Fine Art & Antiques sales.  These sales will include rare and antique coinage, bank tokens and notes, military & honorific medals, antique firearms, uniforms, edged weapons and other related  ephemera.

Coins, bank notes and tokens have a value that far outweighs their intended use as a unit of currency. Archaeological and historical records of Ancient Rome and medieval Mesopotamia indicate that coins were collected and catalogued by scholars and state treasuries. 

A medal or medallion tends mostly to be a small, flat and round piece of metal that has been sculpted, moulded, cast, struck, stamped, or some way marked with an insignia, portrait, or other artistic rendering.  Medals are awarded to a person or organization as a form of recognition for sporting, military, scientific, academic, or various other achievements.  Military medals, particularly of the World Wars, have become a major area for collectors with extra attention being paid to the history of the recipient.

The militaria market has gone from strength to strength in recent years and we have an established client base for these items. Of particular interest to collectors are edged weapons, antique firearms, and commemorative pieces. Items with a good provenance are especially sought after.
