    I recently had an outstanding experience with Chards Coin and Bullion Dealer. From start to finish, their team provided exceptional service and expertise. They were incredibly knowledgeable about the products they offered and patiently answered all of my questions.

    The selection of coins and bullion they had available was impressive, and I was able to find exactly what I was looking for. The prices were very fair, and the quality of the products was excellent.

    Shipping was prompt and secure, and the items arrived in perfect condition. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with my experience with Chards Coin and Bullion Dealer and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a reliable and trustworthy coin and bullion dealer. Their customer service is second to none, and I will definitely be a repeat customer in the future. Five stars all around!

    No other UK dealer comes close for the levels of personal care and deep market knowledge possessed by every member of staff at Chards. Exceptional company and exceptional people

    wish they’d bring back secondary market silver bars on the special VAT scheme. I check almost weekly and never in stock

     – :

    Good bullion dealers but there has been a few occasions where my coins have not been packaged well and have just been put in the same bag, they also charge a minimum of £6 delivery, which another bullion dealer I use gives free delivery and still prices the coins the same, if not a little bit cheaper.

    But they have a good range of coins and fair prices and I use them when they have something I am looking for but the other dealers I use are out of stock and I have never had a problem with them.

    Best of the best, second to none for choice and knowledge in the numismatics world. Never have I met a more friendly group of people, no pressure, no steering you towards coins you dont want or need. 100% satisfied.

    What I love about this company is it loves what it does – and that just shines through. It shares that joy, that sense of social history, the currency of change, with others too. It has a regular slot on local (county wide) radio talking about finds, changes, advising others – again with that irrepressible spirit. It’s a cornerstone of the local community and helps other businesses make connections and supports local charities.

    But as a customer, frankly intimidated by the thought of venturing through the doors, I got a lovely welcome – and I was only buying an Isaac Newton 50p for my brilliant Oxford maths graduate nephew in the hope it may come to acquire more value. The care with which that small walk-in transaction was handled was much appreciated. There is a genuinely lovely team here – and a family who lead from the front.

    These guys are really good helping beginners out. When I lived in the UK and started out investing as a beginner, they were patient and helped me out a lot. Much recommended!

    Deserving winners of the top bullion dealer prize, Chards are hands-down the best coin resource in the UK if not the world. Epic collection and epic knowledge.

    By far cheaper than most other dealers, I have recommended them many times.

    I’m disabled left one of my sticks in the old premises which they took with them when they moved keeping it safe for me.

    I’ve been using Chard’s since 2012 & will continue to do so.
    Friendly & nice team who have always looked after me & made my accessibility dog most welcome always giving him water.

    Good luck Chard’s, you deserve to win this. Andrew

     – :

    Despite an initial mix-up, Chard’s competent team of staff (with particular thanks to Serena – She is the BEST!) helped me to sort things out.

    Their items are reasonably priced and the range of precious metal products is just phenomenal.

    Having said, I would like to see a overhaul of their website soon, as it is hard to search for different items at the moment.

    First and foremost, they should have an ‘In Stock’ option since many items are actually not available – even though the site says they are!

    The checkout procedure needs some more thoughts as well – the ‘mix-up’ I mentioned above is the result of this.

    There is no doubt in my mind that I will continue to buy from Chard in the years to come. (Note: I have actually been buying from another site, but I guess I will not be doing that anymore).

    Thanks again for being so great!

    (BD Ed: It’s our understanding that Chards are currently in the process of a full site redesign)

    each time I’ve dealt with chard I’ve been more impressed than the last and I always get the feeling that this is a passionate hobby or interest that happens to be a successful business. Everyone there has the kind of in depth knowledge that usually only comes hand in hand with an obsessed collector. Lawrence particularly noteworthy for his encyclopaedia like brain. For any numismatist a trip to chard must be on the must do list if your in the area.

    I’ve been buying from ( and sometimes selling to) Chard for what must be 20 years and have had an exceptional experience every time. Lawrence is a walking wikipedia and the whole team are that rare mix of friendly and professional that keeps me coming back again and again.
