Coins for Auction - Ross's Auctioneers & Valuers
Coins

Whilst most obviously coins have been, and still are, a form of currency across the globe, coins are often mounted and used for decorative purposes. Most frequently, our auctions feature sovereigns and half sovereigns, often mounted as pendants on necklaces or as charms on bracelets.

The English sovereign was revived as part of the Great Recoinage of 1816 and these were minted from 1817 onwards in the U.K. Full sovereigns are struck in 22 carat gold and have a weight of 7.98g; these are increasingly popular with collectors as investment pieces, whether loose or as part of an item of jewellery.
