    An Important Bound Catalogue Of The Valuable Collection Of Coins And Medals

Coins or numismatics are a popular and strong area for collectors and investors alike. We can assist clients with gold, silver, milled and pre-decimal coins, proof sets, tokens and banknotes.

Medals and militaria are other areas which are proving to be popular with collectors, who are keen for not just for medals but for awards, cap badges, uniforms and helmets. Also, military ephemera is becoming more important with items like flight logs, diaries, photographs and war souvenirs especially when they give a background ‘story’ to medals.

At Ellis, Willis & Beckett we understand that coins, medals and militaria can be emotive subjects ands valuations and guidance with care and discretion.
