How To Sell Your Items

Sell your coin and banknote collection with John Spence, an experienced coin dealer, through our simple and hassle-free Penny Man process. We aim to offer the best possible customer service, experience, and price.

Professional Appraisals

Have your items tested by our coin, comics, and books experts. Your item will be carefully examined, and the quality will be tested using first-rate technology, knowledge, and research.

Price Offer & Payment

We will determine a selling price once our Penny Man evaluation is complete. Payment can be made in cash or processed as a same-day bank transfer to your nominated account.

Deceased Estates

The Penny Man specialises in appraisals and valuations for antiques, collectibles, furniture, toys, guns, silver, books, coins, and tools. We are here to buy or sell for you during a difficult time. We’ll assess your requirements – free of charge with no obligation.

We’ll Travel To You

Our valuers will come to the property to discuss your requirements and develop the most suitable service options. We have a team of valuers available in the Northern Rivers and South East Queensland area. They can usually schedule a time to meet within a couple of days.

If you are outside of the area, call us for information about our interstate visit schedule.

Fast Evaluations

A written proposal within 24 hours of the visit. We’ll always give you two choices about how to move forward. These may include us offering to purchase the contents or sell them at auction on your behalf and will be fully inclusive of all costs and services to achieve your objectives. If you’d like to be involved in some of the work, that’s fine, or you can leave it up to Penny Man. You can choose how you’d like to work with us.

Single Point Of Contact

A dedicated Account Manager is your single point of contact, and we’ll keep you updated with arrangements as the job progresses. At the end of the work, an inventory of contents and consolidated account are presented, showing what happened to the things in the house so that you can provide full accountability to the estate beneficiaries.

John Spence & Son

John Spence is a Lismore local who has spent his life collecting coins and dealing with silver and gold. As a boy, John found a coin and felt it might be worth something. It wasn’t, but his interest was piqued. Now, John has over 40 years of specialising in the best quality Australian coins and banknotes and can buy and sell knowing exactly what to look for in coins and collectables. John’s son, Luna, follows in John’s footsteps and specialises in comics and books. You won’t come across a fairer deal than when working with the Spence family. They know what it takes to build a collection and are here for you to buy and sell the very best.
