A total of 34 'scratched field' bronze coins are recorded of all dates and denominations, made up of 20 Pennies, 7 and 7 s. Of the 20 Pennies, 12 are known to be in the British Museum , this being one of the remaining 8 available to commerce. An extremely rare opportunity to bid on a piece of Victorian numismatic history.

Buy English Certified Coins

London Coins holds auctions every three months in Bracknell, Berkshire with a dedicated section for Certified Coins. This section covers English Coins graded and encapsulated by third party grading companies including CGS - UK, and the US companies such as PCGS and NGC.
London Coins also offer an optional service where we can recommend coins suitable for third party grading and encapsulation where we believe value is likely to be added to an auction realisation price if the coin went through this service, these will usually be exceptionally high grade English Milled coins. We can arrange suitable coins to be submitted to CGS - UK prior to and ready for auction inclusion, an additional charge of £11 is levied on the sale price but we will only recommend this service if we believe more than this amount will be added to the hammer price result.
