Our next token auction, MB97, is live here online with bidding closing on 17 March 2021. This auction begins with Ronnie Breingan’s really good collection of transport tickets, tokens and passes (lots 1-127).  To put this into perspective, although there’s only just over 100 pieces, it’s a much better group than the previous Scottish transport tokens we offered from the Macmillan collection (there are a few from that collection in here, also some from Brodie).

Apart from British and world token coinage, we will have more pub and mining checks from Emyr George’ plus books and catalogues from his library. The Kelly’s and other directories are already for sale at fixed prices on the site – search on ‘directory’. Text catalogue MB97 tokens for download here.

We’re not just about auctions. When you look in the BUY section here you will find all sorts of numismatic items at fixed prices to buy now. Browse or search by category or key words. And of course we’re always looking to buy or to receive future consignments. We’ll put up more pieces to buy now online gradually so bookmark the site please.

Our next auction for medals won’t be until later in spring. Consignments are welcome for inclusion but message us first before sending.
Meanwhile we’ve lots of different sorts of medals plus coins, tokens and weights in the ‘buy’ fixed price section with more being added. This includes a run of Admiral Vernon medals commemorating the war between British and the Spanish in the West Indies, semi-piratical!
