We are dedicated to serving collectors all over the world. We sell coins, banknotes, medallions, ancient coins, antiquities and books. Coincraft only deal with collectors, we do not sell anything as an investment!

At the shop and on our website you will find a good range of coins, banknotes, ancient coins, medallions, antiquities and books available to buy. If you are visiting the British Museum, then pop across the street to say hello.

Every three weeks we publish a 24 page full colour tabloid sized newspaper called The Phoenix which is FREE on request, just order it by clicking this link https://www.coincraft.com/the-phoenix-our-free-publication - we will be happy to send you a complimentary copy. In it are offerings of coins, banknotes, medallions, ancient coins and antiquities at fixed prices. Many of the items are discounted from their original issue price, we run one of the largest secondary markets in this type of material.
