"I have a dream" said one man, one day I would walk in a coin shop and the owner would bring forth a HENRY VIII testoon. What is that? It is a shilling oh Henry VIII the British King that had many wives. [A coin that would have cost 1700gbp in 1974 today after the words monetary mis-handling could cost you 65’000gbp] see -


British coins are so diverse and with over 1000 years of history opens the door to collect everything from a CELTIC coin to a farthing of ELIZABETH II.


Today the market is still continuing on an upward trend, start, enjoy, search you will be rewarded by an interesting hobby that also introduces u to many new friends. Coin collecting is first a hobby of Kings and today seen as an” investment tool for wealth protection” Such words we dare not have said a few years ago.


Avice only buy in these markets the finest you can afford. See the non commercial site of - to see the Art of Coins.


Study, learn, and be involved in your own investment for the future – to be correct I should say there are many knowledgeable dealers who can assist you in your path forward, just choose wisely. A coin is Art – Quality Art has always been collected, coins being no different.


Every coin in the collection that makes up - was thrown to the floor, may I say not a cement floor, if it was still attractive on the floor it was bought for the collection. We wonder what stories would be told  if a coin could talk .

British gold coins especially for the numismatic are fascinating and beautiful, but there are some of the coins are expensive especially those early sovereign. Also remember that generally speaking the older the coin the larger its value is.

Collecting british coins can be quite a fun hobby but at the other end of the scale, something like the 1933 penny is already worth about $50,000. A pretty expensive hobby indeed.

Why is it that a contemporary Queen Elizabeth II sovereign is often more expensive than a Queen Victoria sovereign e.g. QEII 2005 sovereign 230 GBP, QV young head sovereign 226GBP for sale at Bairds and Co London?

British coins are a little hard to get over here, but I've had some good luck finding old English pennies.  I have found 2 in the foreign coin bins at coin shops.  They don't seem to recognize them.  I found a 1775 with a hole in it the other day, and a very worn one from the 1730's.  Pretty good for less than a quarter.  

I don't know a lot about british coins, but I know I like them.  Especially the older ones.  

Coins are fun.
