In for a penny, in for a pound.

The Dawsons coins and banknotes department offers regular sections of early hammered gold and silver coins up to 20th century and present day rarities, as well as banknotes, bonds and share certificates.

One of our recent highlights was the sale of a single owner collection of hammered gold coins, with the earliest example dating to the reign of James I in 1604. Garnering interest internationally the sale achieved market-leading prices and a was a 'white glove sale' result meaning a 100% success rate.
