Previous Announcements

We look forward to welcoming you again

Published June 13

Following the Government’s most recent announcements, I am very pleased to be able to update you on our plans for reopening our new and much-improved store at 399 Strand, while doing all we can to keep both our customers and staff safe.

From June 15th we will be open for people to visit us by pre-arranged appointment, followed two weeks later on June 29th by the full opening of all three floors of the building. This includes our new Baldwin’s coin room and display areas as well as a completely new shop on the ground floor.

We are very excited by this but rest assured, we will be implementing a range of measures to keep everybody safe including the use of floor markers, hand sanitiser, plastic screens and additional cleaning. We will also continue to minimise staff levels on site while doing all we can to offer you the very best level of service.

If you would like to make an appointment to come and see us prior to June 29th, please contact us or get in touch with a Baldwin’s representative. The Baldwin’s team remain available to speak with you and answer any queries you may have throughout normal opening hours (Monday to Friday, 9 am to 5 pm).

We look forward to being able to welcome you to our new look home and wish everybody continued good health during these unprecedented times.

Our colleagues and customer safety remain our top priority and we thank you for your understanding in this unprecedented situation we find ourselves in.

To all of our friends in the coin collecting world

Published March 13, 2020

As a near 150-year-old organisation, Baldwin’s has seen many challenging moments throughout its history. Witnessing the developments of Covid-19 has saddened us while at the same time has re-enforced our commitment to the two most important elements of our business, namely our colleagues and our customers. 

Over the last few weeks, we have been working continuously to ensure that we do all we can to protect everybody as much as possible while providing you with the best, most comprehensive service possible. 

The situation continues to change day by day, if not hour by hour. For the majority of this week, many of our staff have been working from home and this proportion will increase further. We have also operated a policy of staggered attendance on a team-by-team basis.

Throughout this time, all areas of our business have remained open but in order to further protect both our colleagues and customers, as of today we have reluctantly closed our shop in Central London on a temporary basis. The Baldwin’s team, however, remain willing and able to assist you by phone or email and distribution of our products, all of which are available online, is currently unaffected. We would love to hear from you if you are interested in buying, selling, or simply discussing the wonderful world of coin collecting. 

It is important to us that during this difficult time, we are seen to be doing all we can to help our customers and support our cherished hobby and we will continue to work tirelessly with this aim in mind. We are very aware that many of our clients will likely have to spend much more time at home than normal and we will endeavour to entertain you with more educational articles and blogs, posts on social media, informative and captivating videos and to continue to offer any advice or help that we can. 

This situation places a huge burden on all of us but by tackling and sharing that burden collectively, the hobby will emerge with a stronger sense of community and purpose than ever before. From everybody at Baldwin’s, we wish you and your family good health during this difficult time.
