Gold Medals
Although medals and medallions are not VAT exempt, they can be an interesting way to invest in gold at the same time as acquiring historical, artistic antique artefacts.

Medals and Medallions
To some extent the words medal and medallion are interchangeable. We have always used the word medal to suggest the type of medal which is awarded, for military service for example, and have used medallion to signify other medal types, such as those issued to commemorate historical events, or for sale to collectors. Our usage however is somewhat arbitrary. Daniel Fearon, for example in the introduction to his book Catalogue of British Commemorative Medals, states that what we call medallions should properly be called medals. We bow to his expertise.

Collecting Gold Medals
There are many types of medals which have been issued, from Roman times to the present day. Depending on the nature and purpose of the medals, they have been issued in gold, silver, copper, bronze, white metal, and other metals. Some medals were issued in two or three different metals at different prices for commercial medals, or for different recipients in the case of awarded medals. Those issued in gold usually have quite low mintage figures compared with their less expensive brethren. Over a long period of time many of these may have been melted down for scrap, more so for gold than for silver, and hardly at all for base metal versions. This means that gold medals will have become relatively rarer since their issue. This increasing rarity can make them an investment for the patient collector, as well as a fascinating and interesting collectable.

We Buy and Sell Gold Medals
We are always happy to buy and sell gold medals.

Gold Medal Gallery
The prime purpose of this section is to showcase a number of gold medals which have passed through our hands. We may still have these available for sale. Please see individual pages for more information.
