Centuries of expertise

Since 1872, Baldwin’s has dedicated itself to the joy of collecting. Originally a specialist in numismatics, we have grown to become leading auctioneers for both traditional and emerging collectibles. Based in our famous home on Strand, we bring together exceptional cross category expertise, from our standing as global leaders in the field of coins and medals, to Stanley Gibbon’s unrivalled experience in philately – as well as contemporary expertise in trading cards, video games, comics and sports memorabilia.

By bringing all of these different specialisms together under the Baldwin’s brand, our reputation is built on more than 300 years of expertise in collectibles. Our mission now is to build on that proud history and service to spark, and support, the love of collection in many new generations to come. As the premier auctioneer for all kinds of collectibles, we have the responsibility to make the experience of buying, seeking and selling treasured items one filled with trust, care and joy, at every stage of a collector’s journey.



That collecting has always been about more than ownership. Collecting, of any treasured item, is about discovery and joy. It’s about the dream of what you don’t yet have. The thrill of seeking and finding. And the triumph of a successful pursuit. Our purpose is to keep that unique collector’s flame alive for many generations to come.
