Overview

Our experts in Commemorative Medals and Tokens are adept at appraising and valuing all types of consignment, and we have sold more British tokens by auction than any other auctioneer, whilst remaining the only major British auction house offering trade tokens in specialist sales.

Recent commemorative medal highlights include a silver medal commemorating the Devon landing of William of Orange in 1688, a winner’s medal from the London Olympic Games in 1908 and a bronze medal celebrating Admiral Vernon’s capture of Porto Bello in 1739.

Important tokens have included a 17th century Butchers’ Guild halfpenny, a 1669 token used at London’s notorious Newgate prison and the largest copper coin ever to circulate in Great Britain, a sixpence of the Birmingham Workhouse, 1813.
