Coin and Stamp Pawnbroker

Pawn your Antique and Bullion Coins, and Rare Stamps from the comfort of your home

Rare Stamps and Coins Pawnbroker

Stamp and coin collecting is one of the most popular hobbies worldwide – there are an estimated 50 million stamp and coin collectors across the globe. Collectors are not usually motivated by an item’s value, but by an interest in its history, geography, or style – the same for coins too. That said, collecting can be profitable and many people see stamps and coins as a good way of investing; prices for single stamps at auction have sold for up to $10m in rare cases.

Your collection may have been built up steadily over the years, or even it could have been a bequeathment or gift. Whatever the case, it may have hidden financial value that we can help you access. As long as your stamps or coins have an open market value, we will happily lend you 70% of this figure.

Many pawnbrokers will offer to lend against your stamps or coins, however, they don’t offer the same services that we are uniquely positioned to provide. An established FCA regulated pawnbroker, we combine the specialist valuation expertise of auction houses and dealers with our custom developed pawnbroking software and an experienced operations team. Our peer-to-peer lending platform confirms loans quickly and guarantees an easy and confidential transaction.

We use a simple online platform to process our loans, and then we pass the savings onto our borrowers, allowing us to offer the most competitive pawn loan interest rates. All you have to do is upload a picture of your item, describe it, apply for a loan, and you receive an indicative offer.

Is Borrowing Against Rare Stamps or Coins Right for You?

You might not have used a pawnbroker before or may be unsure of the process. The traditional pawn shop image of a valuer sitting behind a counter in a high-street booth is far from the reality with us. There are a wide range of benefits to a pawn loan, some of which you might not have been aware of. So, if you are unsure about the idea of borrowing against stamps or coins, here are the benefits:

No Tedious Paperwork – We know that your time is precious. That’s why our application process is online – quick and simple.

No Credit Checks – The security of a pawn loan does not depend on your financial history. As we are lending money against your assets, your credit score is not relevant to the decision to lend.

Spot-Free Credit Score – Even if you are unable to pay back the loan, your credit history will remain unaffected. We do not report any failure to repay loans and if you wish to walk away from the loan, we sell the assets and transfer the excess funds back to your account.

Easy Access – Receive 70% against the value of your stamps or coins simply by completing our hassle-free online application from the comfort of your home or office.

Discreet and Flexible – We understand that financial arrangements can require discretion.  We communicate only by email and phone with the named borrower, and we post items back in discreet unmarked packaging. Should you wish to make an appointment to meet us, we have an unbranded office in the City of London. We do not have a shop, so do not retail defaulted items.

Low-Interest Rates – We are committed to helping you get loans at the lowest possible rates. Our interest rates are less than half of what other high street lenders charge from borrowers.

To easily understand the interest rates we charge, we have prepared an indicative example of how they are calculated on pawn loans. If you have any questions about a loan, our small team is always at hand to help.

Representative Example: Total credit: £4000. Set-up fees: £120. Loan term of 6 months. Annual Interest rate: 40.2% (fixed). Interest for 6 months: £828.12. Amount repayable in one installment: £4,948.12. Representative APR: 53.0%.

All loans are for a fixed term of 6 months. You can repay early at any time without penalty.

Risk Warning: If the loan is not repaid, the assets may be sold.
