Visit Us For A Valuation

We offer the best prices when we can view your coins in person. That’s why we encourage anyone looking to sell coins to visit our premises in Royal Wootton Bassett.

Royal Wootton Bassett is located in Wiltshire, easy to get to from J16 of the M4. We’re only six miles from Swindon which is served by trains on the London to Bristol line. Appropriately, out premises are in the former HSBC bank, on the High Street of this historic market town.

We are open from 9.30 to 17.00, Monday to Friday. No need to call ahead, just bring your coins to our dedicated, secure sales room.

Sell Your Coins Fast

We understand that you’d like to realise the value of your coins as soon as possible. For most coins and coin collections we can provide a speedy valuation while you wait. We have expert staff on hand during our opening hours, ready to inspect and assess your treasures.

If you’re happy with our price we can pay you the same day, either by bank transfer or in cash.                         

For larger collections it might take us a little longer to provide a comprehensive and accurate valuation. As far as possible we will work to provide you with a figure within 24 hours.

Free, No Obligation Valuations

The valuations we provide are the prices that we are prepared to pay for your coins.

You are under no obligation to sell to us and we encourage you to research the market and seek opinions from other experts. Even if you are not looking to sell right now, getting professional valuations can inform how you develop your collection.

All our coin valuations are free, except if you are seeking a probate valuation. See below for details or read our Probate Valuations guide.

Sell Your Silver Coins Online

There’s no need to leave your house to get a fair price for your old silver. For pre-decimal silver coins you can now sell online with our Pre-decimal Calculator. We can provide instant prices by weight, face value or denomination and getting paid is as simple as posting your coins to us.

Get Cash For Coins From Home

If you’re not local or you have a large consignment, we can still help you sell your coins.

We can provide a guide price for you coins based on their weight and photographs but we can always provide a more accurate figure when we can view your collection. Simply Contact us and we can arrange to securely transport your coins to our offices for assessment.

The British Numismatic Trade Association

We are proud members of the BNTA – The British Numismatic Trade Association. This is an independent body that works to uphold the reputation of specialist dealers in coins and medals. As members we are bound by the BNTA’s Code of Ethics. This Code confirms our commitment to buying and selling authentic coins in a way that complies with relevant legal codes and good practice standards.

The BNTA also maintains databases of stolen goods and common forgeries, both of which we refer to when purchasing coins.

Probate and Insurance Valuations

Are you looking for a probate valuation on a collection of coins? We can help.

Inaccurate valuations of assets can be challenged by HM Revenue and Customs, slowing down the process. For a flat rate of £150 we can provide you with a formal, written valuation, designed to be acceptable to probate authorities. If you subsequently choose to sell the items to us, we will refund the fee.

The Britannia Coin Company is part of Gold Traders (UK) Ltd. If you have other items made from precious metals like jewellery or watches we have the expertise to complete probate valuations for these items too. We can also provide valuations for insurance purposes on request.


We are always proud to show off our previous customers experiences with you and what they thought of our purchasing through with Britannia Coins.
