Buying Coins

The Coin Hunter Coin Database contains a wide variety of coins for sale. Ancient coins from over a thousand years ago, right up to the latest releases from The Royal Mint and everything in between.

If you are looking to buy new coins or coin sets currently in production, you can buy direct from The Royal Mint or from a small number of coin dealers who stock the latest releases.

If you are looking for modern decimal coins in presentation packs or sets (which are out of production and no longer available from The Royal Mint), some coin dealers listed in the dealers directory do specialise in decimal coinage.

eBay and other similar online marketplaces can offer good opportunites to find items missing from your collection, but do remember to research prices to make sure you do not pay too much.

If you are looking for old pre-decimal coins, The Royal Mint do have a range of historical coins available and most coin dealers should also have a good selection.

eBay is an option, but do research the coin itself and consider the price asked before making a bid or choosing to "Buy It Now". There are many fake coins offered for sale, a good feedback score is no guarantee. Research may help you avoid spending good money on a worthless coin or paying too much for a genuine coin.

Coin Hunter says: If you have any concerns about identifying real coins from items made to decieve, you should look to buy from a professional coin dealer with a solid reputation in the industry. Coin Hunter search results only include items sold by reputable dealers and eBay listings are only shown from selected coin dealer shops.
