The medals from a West Midlands source were discovered by Richard Winterton’s Coin and medal Consultant Stephen Wrenn. Mr Wrenn comments:

‘It is rare to find so many fine medals from a single source to different recipients. The market for medals is particularly strong at present with people buying for pleasure and investment.’

The consignment is expected to fetch £3-3.5k when offered in the forthcoming specialist sale in Lichfield on 2nd June.

Stephen Wrenn holds free valuations for medals, coins, (antique to modern gold, silver etc) and banknotes at The Lichfield Auction Centre every Tuesday from 10am to 12midday. No appointment necessary, but may be advisable due to popular demand.
