Brushwood Coins

Collectors Coins

This is an updated release of the Brushwood collector's coin page. It will be expanded in the future to include further Brushwood Coin Notes and additional coins for sale.

Coin Notes

The first Brushwood Coin Note we published covered the British coin grading definitions. In early 2006 we then released further coin notes on "Wren Farthings" and "Ship Halfpennies". A further Coin Note on the "Brass Threepence" was then added in 2008. These Coin Notes provide information on all the variations commonly found in Royal Mint issued coins, along with pictures and circulation figures for each year of minting.

Further Coin Notes now also recently published include one on the History of the UK Fifty Pence Coin covering the first 50 Years of issue. The Fifty Pence Coin Note covers every aspect of the 50p coin, from its introduction in 1969 through to its 50th Anniversary in 2019. The first edition also includes all the 2020 coins (1st Edition: Jan 2021).

A number of other reference coin notes are being considered for the Decimal Coinage of the UK, and the most recent of those is a complete "History of the UK's First Decimal Coin", covering all the scarce ten pence issues including the Alphabet Letter series.

If you are interested in the origins of the shape of the Fifty Pence coin then there is an amusing Institute of Mathematics article that will be of interest called "Concorde, Conway and Curiously Curved Coins" to which we have provided a link above.

Coins For Sale

In addition to the wide range of Proof & BUNC sets to be found on the other pages of the website Brushwood currently has for sale the following coins as listed. Coins are normally available at UNC grade, with a few of the less common dates only available in up to EF condition. We also have a number of other individual decimal proof coins for sale.

We also have for sale Whitman folders for Halfpennies and Farthings.

If you send us a list of coins you need we will be happy to quote you a price that will be below the current market value. We always aim to match or do better than the 'Buy It Now' prices found on eBay for coins.
