We endeavour always to keep our postal bidders satisfied with accurate descriptions, and realistic estimates based on our many years experience as dealers and auctioneers. Please note though it is not our policy to accept returns of bulk or partially described lots. All single lots are offered as genuine and as described and can be returned by postal bidders within 14 days if the grading or authenticity is disputed unless the lot has the rider “bought as seen” in which case authenticity has not been verified by us and no return option is available. Buyers may request an extension to this period for a further 14 days for the purpose of authenticity verification, buyers must agree this extension with London Coins LTD stating the lot(s) in question. 28 days after the sale our books are closed and no refunds will be made for any reason, and no returns accepted.

We offer an efficient world wide postal service at no extra cost (we pass on our costs only). Items are despatched after payment is made, please allow 21 days for delivery. Alternatively items may be collected from the above address, or where practical at the shows we attend (see website).

Bidding steps will be at the auctioneer’s discretion.

As part of our continuing programme of quality improvement, it is our policy regardless of the method of communication to us (post, email, fax or phone) to return to each bidder a list of the bids we have entered into our system. We believe this will produce several benefits and prevent several potential problems. We can receive up to 5,000 individual bids prior to each sale, they are input twice, the second time by a different operative by way of verification, but we believe it may still be useful for bidders to receive feedback of what bids from them we have input.

This new service will allow each bidder to verify we have processed the bids correctly, and also, in the rare event of post or electronic communication going astray, the absence of a returned notification could indicate that the bids have not been input and may not have been received by us.

Therefore if within 5 working days from receipt of your bids you have received no notification, we strongly recommend you contact us to query the safe receipt of the bids.
