Anyone into coins?

Post by RichardW »

Not French, but hey, there's all sorts on here!

Have been given some coins to dispose of for a family friend.

2 Silver crowns - 1897 (Victoria golden jubilee) and 1953 (QE2 coronation).
1913 Gold sovereign (not sure why 1913?)

All look uncirculated to me.

E-bay trawl suggests the 5s coins are worth maybe £25 for 1897 (although I saw one at £300 :rofl2: ) and £5 for the 1953 one; and the sovereign in the region of £300.

Any interest before I commit them to the 'bay?

You'll have to let us know how you get on. I collect watches, I have far too many.

That's nice but the balance spring is screwed and I'm not clever enough to repair it.
