Proof Sovereigns

One of the most popular gifts year after year are proof sovereigns. We have the 2020 coins in stock at amazing savings compared to the recommended retail price. Available in full, half, 3-coin and 5-coin sets, these dated coins come in a wooden presentation box and are issued with a certificate of authenticity from The Royal Mint. 

If you're looking for this years coin we have the 2019 Sovereigns available in various sizes. Looking for a backdated coin? Check out the rest of the proof sovereign range.

Christmas Coins

Over the years The Royal Mint have released several Christmas coins. Whilst there aren't any new designs released this year, we do keep stock of the backdated coins. These include the 2017 Christmas Tree £5, the 2018 Nutcracker £5 and the 2016 Nativity Story £20

Coin Sets

The annual UK Coin Sets are the perfect keepsake gift. The sets feature coins bearing the year of their issue. The most recent set we stock (and one of the most in-demand gifts!) is the 2019 Annual UK Coin Set. This presentation folder contains 13 coins, including five commemorative issues; Sherlock Holmes, Wedgwood, Samuel Pepys, Queen Victoria Anniversary and D-Day Landings. We keep a wide selection of dates in stock so make sure to check our coin set page

The 2019 My First Coins and Baby Journal is great for a baby's first Christmas. The journal leaves space to document babies firsts, such as first smile and first words. 

Commemorative 50p Coins

The Snowman and The Boy

What could be more festive than this Christmas classic? The newest Snowman coin features the Snowman and the boy. The silver proof coin features a colourful design, presented in a perspex block so you can put your coin on display with the rest of your Christmas decorations. 

Wallace and Gromit

What better stocking filler than this Wallace and Gromit Brilliant Uncirculated 50p which opens up into a rocket display? These 50p coins featuring the claymation duo have proven to be a favourite amongst fans. 

The silver proof version of the coin features a coloured image of Wallace and Gromit on the reverse and comes beautifully presented in a display box. 

Coin Books

If you know someone who's always finding commemorative coins in their change, the bookazine Spend It? Save It? is a great way to find out just how much they're worth. 

For more experienced collectors, we have several coin books available which will help them identify and price their coins. 

The 2020 Coin Yearbook catalogues British coins, from ancient Celtic editions, all the way up to modern decimal coins - all for under £10! The 2020 edition is a new release so it features all the most up-to-date coin values. 

The 2019 Coins of England and the UK Catalogue, (also known as the "coin collectors bible") gives you prices and information about all UK coins, from hammered issues until modern day. Presented in two volumes (both included); a hard-back pre-decimal issue and a softcover decimal issue. The book is a must-have! 

Christmas Sixpence

A Christmas Tradition

Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a lucky silver sixpence baked inside the Christmas pudding. Get your coin for just £2 and add a presentation pouch for an additional £0.95.



That's right, we do jewellery as well. We're typically a third cheaper than high street jewellers. We have a HUGE amount of stock which we haven't quite got round to putting on the website so if you're looking for anything in particular just let us know.

Chanel Ultra Bracelet

How's this for a bit of luxury? This Chanel "Ultra" Bracelet features over 1.7ct of diamonds set in 18ct white gold, with a black resin design. This bracelet retails for £11,200, but we are selling it for over 60% off this price!

Whether you're looking for a solitaire, halo or cluster pendant, we're sure to have something in stock. This 0.79ct diamond claw set solitaire and platinum pendant is one of our own designs, meaning we can customise it to your taste and price range.

Looking for something bigger? This 1.14ct solitaire brilliant diamond is set in 18ct yellow gold.
