Common Questions

In most cases the cost of the postage would outweigh the value of the coins.

Old coins and bank notes are often only worth their face value or their weight as scrap metal.

For this reason, we ask that you only include coins as part of a larger parcel or sent in alone in very large quantities (at least 5Kg/11lbs). If you are going to do this we would suggest using a very strong box!

If you have a smaller quantity and no other items to include with your coins, consider putting together a parcel with a friend or family member. You can then combine your items and send them as a single parcel.

Yes! Whether it is coins or bank notes, Deutsche Marks or Turkish Lira, as long as it is no longer in circulation, we buy all foreign currency.

It’s always worth sending in your coins as part of a larger parcel.

Not many coins are worth more than face value, so while they will boost the value of your box, they won’t be worth very much on their own.
