We buy a range of sought-after coins, including Krugerrand, American Eagles, Sovereign Coins, and Rare Coins. You could earn anything from £93 for an American Eagle coin weighing in at just over three ounces, to an astonishing £1,700 for a four-coin set of British Britannias!
The American Eagle coin has firmly claimed its place as one of the most popular coins in the world. The Gold American Eagle was first released in 1986, famous for depicting the scene of the $20 Saint-Gaudens gold coin. This coin was first created on the request of President Theodore Roosevelt.
The reverse of the coin gives its name to the American Eagle, depicting an eagle flying. Each coin is made of 24 karat gold, but is also alloyed with other metals to protect them from damage. The result is over 91% pure gold, 3% silver and 5% copper.
In 2016, a good Samaritan donated a Krugerrand coin to charity. What the charity didn’t initially realise is that the coin was worth a whopping £900! If you have Krugerrand coins lying around, you could be sitting on a fortune.
The Krugerrand is a South African gold coin, its name joining Kruger, a former South African president, and rand, the South African unit of currency. All coins bear the portrait of President Kruger, as well as the South African Springbok. All Krugerrands are minted from 22 karat gold, making them extremely valuable, as well as a small percentage of copper. The result is a more orange coin in appearance, but one that is more durable and scratch-resistant than other, similar coins. If you’re looking to scrap old gold coins, condition is everything — making the Krugerrand a solid coin investment.
When it comes to selling rare coins, you’ll often receive a much higher offer because they are more sought-after. Coins possess great value to collectors, and because we’ve built up valuable relationships with collectors, we know exactly who will want to buy your gold coins — meaning we can give you the best possible price.
When it comes to selling your old gold coins, there are three things we look at. Gold coins come in several sizes or denominations. These include Ounce, Half Ounce, Quarter-Ounce, and Tenth-Ounce. You’ll typically receive a higher quote for a higher denomination coin, but quality and condition is key.
A coin in poor condition will get you, at best, the scrap value for gold. However, a coin in perfect condition will mean you’ll get more. The final thing we look at is the rarity of a coin. If we believe there’s resale potential, for example, for those looking to complete their collection, we’ll be able to offer you more money for your gold coins.
