At present -

I am working on adding GB Banknotes

GB - Banknotes  

Work is in the process of amending some of our 

grades as we have in the past used EF+ for 

what many dealers, auction houses, etc. call UNC.

This is explained on the frontpage of our 'GB banknotes'

and as to how far I have got with the alterations.

A new Banknote Grading page has been added 

to show examples of my banknote grade listing - now !

The Bank of England banknotes:

1928 Mahon; 1930 Catterns1934 to 1950 Peppiatt

are now up to date with new items added

with pictures for the Mahon & Catterns banknotes

Our stock of Peppiatt banknotes is so large

that we don't have the time to scan each banknote !

Work is now complete on our Treasury

1914 Bradbury 10 Shilling banknote page

and the 1914 Bradbury 1 banknote page.

These are now separate and completely 

re-worked with scans of all notes.


At present I regret but I do not have the 

time to re-work, add or scan all of the 

Fisher 10 Shilling & 1 banknotes.

If there is any banknote with this

signature that you are interested in

I'll try and make time to scan, 

re-grade and price the note for you !


 After the GB banknotes are added

 I will continue to add New British coins

to the website in a systematic order.


The Next GB coin items to be added 

to the website will be:

 The GB silver denominations of

Maundy 3ds; Silver 3ds & 1 pence

in that order !


At present -

Most of our British GOLD coins 

& Our Foreign GOLD coins 

are up to date & priced.


The British Coin & Banknotes

that are up to date are:- 

The Proof & UNC coin sets 

Most of the Decimal coins

 from 100 to decimal halfpence - 1/2 p


Including the Very RARE 1983 



The other GB coins up to date are:-

Crowns;  Double Florins;

Halfcrowns; Florins; Shillings; 

Sixpences; Maundy sets & Groats


Some of our Foreign CoinS 

from "Afganistan" to "Canada"

have been added (Alphabetically).

But we have many more countries to add !

From Canadian Provinces & Token to Zimbabwe 

Some Special or unusual items from some

other countries have been added to our

"Extras" page 


Foreign Banknotes: 

The Scottish notes are up to date.

as are most of our Gibraltar, Guernsey, 

Isle of Man,  Ireland (Rep.), Ireland (Northern)

& Jersey banknotes also.


After the UK silver coins have been added

A large collection of 

British: Copper & Bronze coins -

Pennies, Halfpennies, Farthings & fractional coins

 will be added. 

Followed by possibly either 

MORE G.B. banknotes 

or foreign coins 

Or even more foreign banknotes!


We have some interesting items are in our

  "Extras" selection !


Hopefully, one day ALL world countries are to be added -

which will include both coins and banknotes. 


The coins & banknotes have been stored "off site" 

with a local storage company, for security reasons.
