Valuations

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 that's 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 items in person.

Our office is located at 10 Charles II Street, St. James's, London SW1Y 4AA. We work on an a appointment only basis.

Of course, we appreciate that not everyone can make it to London, and if not you can still get in touch by emailing us directly on info@bsjauctions.com or call us on +44 (0)207 930 7888.

Baldwin's of St James'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.

Please note that Baldwin's of St James'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.
