Ever wondered what Exonumia are? Apart from being an unsual word that is! 

Exonumia are numismatic pieces which are not classified as coins or paper money. Examples of these would be medallions, token, badges, stamp replicas and other items. 

Stamp replica and coins

Gold stamp replicas are a form of medal or medallion and are an alternative to buying physical gold. 

Collecting medallions and stamp replicas

A number of medallists have marketed replica stamps in gold, and other metals, in order to market them at stamp collectors (philatelists). Some will undoubtedly have been bought originally by stamp collectors, but others will have been purchased by non-philatelists. View all our medallions here

 

Medallions and stamp replicas for sale

We are always happy to buy and sell medallions including stamps replicas. Our buying and selling prices are usually related to the intrinsic value of the precious metal content. We pay competitive prices and sell for a modest premium depending on market factors such as aesthetic desirability, supply and demand, and our stocks.

Alternative Gold Investments

There are of course, other ways to invest in gold, these are gold accounts, gold futures, gold mining shares and more recently, the introduction of ‘e-gold’. Each of these have their own risks and for various reasons we do not participate in, promote, or offer recommendations on any of these methods. Please read our dedicated page by clicking here.
