Corona Virus Update

Buying from us

We continue to operate here at Silbury Coins in these unprecedented times, albeit working from home. You can still buy items on our website as usual. Shipping may take a little longer as we are making fewer trips to the post office and some postal services are operating a reduced service. We will keep you updated at every step of the order/shipping process. If you have any questions regarding shipping you can contact Lucy (lucy@silburycoins.com) or John (info@silburycoins.com) and they will be happy to help. 

We are closely monitoring the postal service and will update on any changes, if you'd prefer we can safely store your items until a later date, just ask.

Selling to us

We are still buying single items and collections by post. If you’d prefer you can send pictures via email, phone or WhatsApp for a rough valuation first. To sell items please send them to us using Royal Mail Special Delivery (available at any post office, both insured and tracked). Please package well and include your contact details, we will be in touch when your package arrives with an exact price. If this is acceptable we will pay you by direct bank transfer, if not we will return the items to you via the same method of post.

We wish all of our customers & friends well at this difficult time and we look forward to hearing from new and old friends over the coming months.

Iron Age

The Iron Age is split in to three main categories, most artefacts and all coins come from the Late Iron Age (2nd to 1st Century BC) and there is a wide diversity of bronze items found. Some of the items we see include brooches, clothes toggles/fasteners, mounts and equine related metal work such as terret rings and occasionally a linch pin part or cheek piece. Votive items from the Iron Age are found but not often. It is worth mention that all metal work from the Iron Age is scarce in comparison to Roman and later periods. Most items found in Britain are made of bronze, seldom do you see silver or gold artefacts from this period, I think this was all used for the extensive coinage! Often artefacts are enamelled, generally red or yellow and if these pieces are large & impressive they can fetch thousands of pounds.
