Sending Coins by Post

Sell Gold and Silver in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Scotland or Anywhere Else!

As of today, we can now offer fully insured, door to door service for any value and quantity of bullion gold and silver. We arrange a trusted courier to pick up from your front door and deliver everything next day to our offices in Blackpool. This service is fully tracked and signed for and you can be rest assured the whole investment value is insured. After you inform us what you would like to sell, we will offer an option to fix the price and provide an estimate of delivery costs. Following this we will post out a tamper proof box, shipping label, packing instructions that are easy to follow and book a courier to collect at your convenience. All we ask is that you provide a 3-hour window you are happy to wait in for collection.

The whole process takes 3 or 4 working days and you can expect payment as soon as we check the coins / bars for authenticity and quantity quoted.

This process is perfect should you have very large quantities of gold or silver (such as monster boxes) or should you live too far away to justify driving.

We offer some of the best buy back prices on the market and should you live in London, Surrey, Cornwall, Scotland, Brighton, Birmingham, Leeds or Manchester you can take advantage of our prices without even leaving the house!

Cash payments are only offered in person in the showroom and is subject to availability and cash limits. A 1% fee for cash applies over £1,000, ID and Proof of Address are required.

Payments are generally paid within 3 working days, however, this may be longer, you will be advised first. CHAPS transfers are available at a fee of £30.

Wrap items securely to protect the items and avoid movement. Include a covering note with your name, address, telephone number and your bank account number and sort code. Ensure that you choose Royal Mail Special Delivery and ask for your parcel to be fully insured. Rather than saying you are enclosing gold or silver coins, say that it is a numismatic item.
