Testimonials

The following testimonials were provided by satisfied consignors to our auctions over the last two years.

 

 

“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”.

“So far this year I have consigned coins to the Sovereign Rarities Auction on three occasions. The service is efficient. The advice of Robert Parkinson, Senior Numismatist, 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!”

“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!”

"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."
