It was founded in 1872, and their current team of specialists has over 300 years combined experience in all areas of numismatics, including British and foreign coins, commemorative medals, Ancient coins, military decorations, banknotes, stamps and autographs.

Over their long history, Baldwin’s has built up an impressive stock of numismatic items, and their specialists frequently attend auctions and fairs all around the world in order to source the finest and rarest items. Their reserve of numismatic items is the most comprehensive in the UK, and Baldwin’s has a history of sourcing rare and important coins for prominent collectors.

In 2005 Baldwin’s merged with Noble Investments (UK) PLC, and acquired Apex Philatelics in 2008 and Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions in 2012, meaning that in recent years the company has expanded to become a formidable market player.
