VALUATIONS AND APPRAISALS
Our world-class team of specialists have over 200 years of numismatic experience between them, and a historic track record of valuing all aspects of numismatic material - from Coins to Banknotes to Military and Commemorative Medals to Tokens to Books.
We can offer completely free advice on the best way to sell your collection or item/s. Our specialists will let you know what they believe is the best course of action to achieve the highest price - be that a direct sale or a consignment to one of our high-profile auctions around the world.
If you are after an easy sale, or quick cash-in-your-pocket, then thats fine too - let us know and our team will advise the best way to achieve this.
The world of numismatics is an extremely complicated one, and there are many factors that make a coin, medal, token, banknote or book valuable (such as rarity, condition or age). Therefore the most accurate valuations are always made when we are able to see the item/s in person.
Our office and store is located at 399 Strand in the heart of London, just a few minutes walk from Charing Cross Station, and is open for valuations between 9.30am and 4.30pm (GMT) Mon-Fri. Due to high levels of demand, we always recommend booking an appointment beforehand.
Of course, we appreciate that not everyone can make it to London, and if not you can still get in touch by clicking on the icon above or by emailing us directly on:

If you plan on sending pictures of your coins or item/s, for a more accurate valuation please ensure that you have included the following:
1. High-resolution JPEG images of both sides of the coin or items.
2. A full description of the item/s, including where it was acquired (if known).
3. The type of metal (i.e. silver, copper, etc).
4. The dimensions of the item/s (27mm, 3.4g for example).
The more information we receive about a coin or item, the more accurate we are able to be.

We can also offer free verbal valuations in person at any of the numerous fairs and exhibitions we attend around the world every year. Click on the icon above for a full list. These events are frequently extremely busy, so its a good idea to book an appointment.
Baldwin's can also offer written valuations for probate and insurance purposes upon request, and we also offer house visits when appropriate to pick up items for sale. For more information, please get in touch.
We regret that we are unable to offer valuations on coins or other items submitted through our social media sites (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook).
Please note that Baldwin's reserves the right to make a charge to cover the cost of our time in the case that valuations require a large amount of research.
