Product Prices and Postage Costs reduced from 25th February 2015

Due to the weaker Euro I've been able to further reduce the postage costs for all weights, from single coins to heavy parcels. Every item offered for sale has a weight associated with it to ensure accurate charges (I never charge for packaging materials or time taken packaging). World shipping charges are also reduced, but here is a summary of the postage charges and reductions for customers ordering from the UK and all European countries:  

Up to 50g, was 1.30, now 1.10 (higher values insured/trackable)
51 - 500g, was 2.95, now 2.50 (higher values insured/trackable)
501g to 1kg, was 6.00, now 5.25 (higher values insured/trackable)
1kg to 2kg, was 7.50, now 6.50 (higher values insured/trackable)
2kg to 5kg, was 14.50, now 11.85 (trackable/insured by default)
5kg to 10kg, was 18.00, now 15.50 (trackable/insured by default)
10kg to 20kg, was 26.00, now 22.95 (trackable/insured by default)
20kg to 31.5kg is a new option added for the heaviest orders, cost is 29.95 (trackable/insured by default)

I buy pre 1947 Silver Coins.

For years now, a major part of my business has involved the purchase of pre 1947 British silver coins. In normal used condition these coins are not collectable and have a value based on their silver content. The Guardian Newspaper ran a piece on pre 1947 silver coins refering to and quoting information provided by me, in the money section of the 10th September Saturday edition. Read the article here:
