Welcome to the web site of
Michael Coins Ltd
Due to new government instructions
We have all been asked to stay
in our homes to protect ourselves
from the virus Covid-19 and NOT
to go out unless for food and any
other "essential" reason.
For that reason I regret but from
today, 24th March,
I will not be posting out any further
orders until the government agrees
that it is safe to do so.
I regret this decision but it makes
sense and keeps me safe !
However, I am happy to hear from
anyone that would like to reserve
a coin or banknote.
Stay Safe & Keep Well :-))
