What makes a coin valuable?
Coins derive their value from their rarity, condition, visual appeal and - most importantly – the size of their collector base. Our specialists are experienced at assessing preservation and identifying details that distinguish a common coin from a valuable one.
I have coins to sell, what’s the next step?
Contact one of our specialists directly or email email@example.com with pictures or a description of your coins and we will get back to you as soon as possible with an idea of value.
How will my purchases be shipped?
We ship via registered post for items under £3,000 and by courier for more valuable or bulky items. Every shipment from Sovereign Rarities is fully covered by our insurance. If you are concerned, please contact us with any queries at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What happens if I’m not entirely happy with my purchase?
On bullion products the price of goods are linked to underlying metal prices or financial markets and all sales are final, there are no refunds or exchanges. There is no statutory right to return or cancel an order once placed under the Financial Services (Distance Marketing) Regulations 2004 or Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013.
However, for non-bullion items, should you be unhappy with your purchase or it is in any way not as described we will accept refunds within 14 days of you receiving your item(s). If uncertain about a purchase, we encourage our clients to ask any questions beforehand so as to minimise the time our valuable coins spend in transit.
