When you need help valuing collectibles, you take them to an antique shop.

We couldn't help you if we DID know something about them, but then, we aren't experts in valuing coins/medals...as the title of the forum says, we are experts in ROYALTY. (just because a coin has the image of a royal on it, doesn't make it germaine to the topic.)

DId you know that "Silver Gilt" isn't worth much? It's not real silver...just a very thin layer on the surface.

    A wonderful item indeed, dear boy. I’ll wager it is worth a King’s ransom at the very least, however a more realistic sum would be £50.00 and not a penny less!
