Royal Mint Bullion offers you the flexibility to sell silver bullion coins and bars to us at competitive rates, based on live precious metal market prices. To sell silver to us, it does not have to be produced by The Royal Mint as we will gladly accept enquiries regarding silver coins and bars from other mints and refineries around the world. This gives you the opportunity to sell silver which was stored or purchased elsewhere offering you both convenience and flexibility. Please note that unfortunately, we do not currently accept jewellery (e.g. rings or necklaces) or any 'scrap silver' through this service. Only coins and bars are accepted.
You either have the option to send your silver coins and bars to The Royal Mint using a track and trace delivery service offered by your local post office or by hand delivery to one of our approved partners in London.
For higher value orders we may be able to offer a convenient collection service from your registered address.
We make selling silver easy, safe and secure.
