Coin Condition Explained

Grading the quality of coins can be extremely complicated at the best of times. Those of you who know the standard coin grading system used in the UK will be well aware of how complicated and misleading the definitions can be, with 'GOOD' being a coin that is actually in poor condition, badly worn and covered in marks and scratches, and 'FINE' being a coin that is of average, worn condition!

Our grading system is much easier to understand.

Circulated - This is a coin that has been in circulation and so may show signs or wear, but with all of the detail on the coin being nice and clear. These coins will never have major damage or wear. All coins are carefully checked before being rated so that only the best of the lot are sold by British Coin.

Uncirculated - A coin that shows no wear, other than bag marks or minor mass production scratches, and looks as it did when it left the mint with all its finer details intact and with full lustre present.

BUNC - A coin that is in pristine condition as it has come straight from the Royal Mint, untouched, this coin will have no marks at all.
