Rare coins and bank notes collections
Doerr Dallas offers specialist appraisals of collectable coins and bank notes. We are an independent business offering a high degree of personal attention.
From investment to pastime, numismatic collections offer an interesting and potentially profitable hobby, with aficionados ranging from Popes and Emperors through to slightly more low-key collectors. We value all coins including Roman, hammered, silver, gold, and foreign collections.
Coin collecting dates back to 12th century and Pope Boniface VIII and the Italian thinker and poet Petrarch are two of the earliest collectors.
For bank notes, recently renewed interest has persuaded many people to consider whether they have notes sitting around at the bottom of drawers or in attics at home.
The more unusual they are, the more they’re worth. Unfortunately, this means that some notes are just too common to be worth more than their face value, however anything from before 1960 is worth getting valued.
Even the 1950s old black and white fivers – which a lot of people kept, can sell for good money. One in mint condition is worth about £50.
Coins of interest to collectors often include those that were circulated for only a brief time, coins with minting errors and especially beautiful or historically significant pieces. Coin collecting can be differentiated from numismatics, in that the latter is the systematic study of currency as a whole, though the two disciplines are closely interlinked.
The motivation to collect coins isn’t only about getting rich. The beauty of the artwork, its rarity, the age, and the history is the attraction to collectors. It is, therefore, no surprise that numismatics is a field so wide and inspirational to everyone.
