Banknote auctions continue to grow in popularity and importance with collectors across the world.

Not only are they now a key part of the collectables industry, banknote auctions are also the best way to achieve the maximum possible returns when it comes to selling all types of paper money.

Here at Warwick & Warwick, which was established in 1958, our experts are trusted as one of the market leading valuers and auctioneers for British banknotes, world banknotes and rare banknotes.

And because we can call upon almost 60 years of valuation experience, our banknote auctions consistently achieve the maximum prices possible.

And when you buy banknotes from us, it means the price you pay is guaranteed to reflect the high quality we provide.

Are you thinking of selling your banknote collection or part of it?

Our team of banknote experts will be pleased to offer free advice to all UK residents, in complete confidence, on any matters relating to private treaty sales or buying or selling in a banknotes auction.

As experts in British banknotes and paper money from around the world, we regularly assess and provide free valuations for single items as well as offering professional guidance to find specific items to help with the formation of banknote collections.

In addition to selling single notes, our banknote auctions also include complete private banknote collections, some of which have taken decades to compile.

With more than five decades of experience to our name, we are proud of our reputation as one of the UK’s best known banknote auctioneers.
