Boningtons auctions offer expert advice and appraisals regarding all coins, stamps and medals, for which the market is currently particularly strong in its demand. We regularly throughout the year hold auctions for these items which always have a good turnout. The details of upcoming auctions can be found on our home page.
We have over the years been consigned to many private collections of various sizes with one significant collection holding 500+ medals. This collection included some extremely fine examples of gallantry medals and pieces dating from the Victorian and Edwardian eras right up to the present day.
The majority of this collection went under the hammer on the day of the auction. It was not surprising that we had a record turnout in the Saleroom (despite very inclement weather!). Bidding was very competitive amongst collectors and dealers alike (both in the sales room and on the telephones) with the Crimean and early Victorian medals holding good premiums. The entire collection sold, much to the delight of the client.
Specific highlights to date for our Fine Art Auction included a cased Military Cross with citation, a pair of Falklands Atlantic medals to the Parachute regiment, a WWI Military Medal group and a Military General Service Medal with three bars.
If you are looking to be kept up to date or purchase a particular era or type of coin, stamp or medal, please provide us with your details on our enquiry form and we will notify you via e-mail when such examples become available in our forthcoming sales.
