"Regarding the 1737 Irish proof farthing, I am over the moon with it - great coin for my farthing collection. Very professional service from a sophisticated young lady who dealt with genuine service and reassured phone call, and a speedy delivery - 100% valued numismatist that I would highly recommend."

- Lee, UK, bought from us April 2024


"I'm writing to let you know that I received my Commonwealth of England silver Halfgroat of Twopence and I'm absolutely thrilled how beautiful a coin it is. The coin in hand is definitely nicer than the photos let on but for that, I'm very grateful. It's safe to say I will be ordering from Sovereign Rarities in the future."

- Bill, USA, bought from us March 2024


"I just wanted to thank you for the service you have provided for our family. It really means a lot to us to be able to gain the advice of a trusted professional and we were so impressed with the prompt valuation, opportunity to sell and swift exchange."

- Katherine, UK, sold to us January 2024


"You are a wonderful auction house, I can't find the words to thank you. I hope again to win other lots in your future auctions. A warm greeting to all of you."

"It was during the recent annual Hong Kong Coin show that I became aware of Sovereign Rarities, and their impressive collection of truly valuable coin assets. Once I identified the extraordinary range of coins available, I requested additional information from Sovereign's carefully crafted, well-codified, and highly coherent website. What made this contact even more impressive, was that they were at the time attending the Hong Kong Coin Show, and yet took the time to engage with me, receiving counsel, and even recommendations directly germane to convincing me I had arrived at my intended destination.

Over the course of my experiences in the bullion and numismatic markets, never have I had such an authority reach out to me in order to provide input and perspective. I purchased three absolutely gorgeous items, followed by FedEx delivery of the coins to my home only 48 hours later.

If any given entity's most precious asset is its people, I must say that Sovereign Rarities values and embraces this fundamental principle in working with others, and from what I can tell, it appears to commence at the very top. Going forward, I cannot imagine not starting at the very top; at Sovereign Rarities."

“Sovereign Rarities provided an excellent service when I decided to sell a rare coin I found with my metal detector. They put a great deal of time and effort into researching a previously unseen piece, calling on experts from around the world for their knowledge and opinions. I particularly appreciated that there was always someone available for me to talk to throughout the process, as it was all new to me. The auction sale itself was very well publicised, again drawing international attention, and the final outcome was a fantastic £28,000 hammer price - several times the £5-8k estimate! No seller fees to pay either. A great result”.

Price Realised inc. BP: £33,600 



 “So far this year I have consigned coins to the Sovereign Rarities Auction on three occasions. The service is efficient. The advice... has proved very sound. My first such sale entailed parting with a Una and the Lion 2019 Two-Ounce Gold Proof that I had bought from the Royal Mint. A very favourable transaction; more money to put back into coins!” 

-Anonymous, consigned 2021-2022

“My consignments were very well marketed and presented by Sovereign, resulting in some strong realisations. Many coins significantly exceeded my already optimistic expectations, with my 1847 Gothic Crown bringing £28,000 - four times the high estimate. Prompt payment too!” 

-Anonymous, consigned 2021-2022

 "Sovereign Rarities’ ‘Ides of March’ auction provided an excellent opportunity to sell a necklace of Roman coins containing of a very rare Brutus 'Ides  of March' Denarius. The descriptions and photographs were very comprehensive and I particularly loved how the historical events behind the coin were described, along with the humour that, ”unfortunately - and somewhat ironically  -  it is Brutus's coin which bears the most stab wounds!” , a reference to the holes that unfortunately pierced the coin. Amazingly, the coins realised significantly more than had been anticipated due, I am sure, to the publicity and personal interest shown by the people who worked at Sovereign Rarities. Thanks to all concerned."
