With a distinguished heritage dating back to 1856, Stanley Gibbons is the world’s longest established rare stamp merchant. Our world-leading experts are at the heart of everything we do and they travel globally in search of authentic, high quality material often of extreme rarity and value. It is this adherence to quality that gained Stanley Gibbons the Royal Warrant in 1914 and allows us to offer a lifetime guarantee on all our rare items. We remain the only philatelist to offer this assurance.
The company continues to serve pre-eminent collectors, philatelists and numismatists all over the world. We are proud to continue our association with the Royal Philatelic Collection, supplying stamps, publications and advice and assistance, when required.
Based opposite the Savoy on the Strand, the traditional home of stamp collecting, the Stanley Gibbons shop offers the broadest retail philatelic stock available anywhere in the world, with over a million stamps available to browse and purchase. In the same building, our philatelic auction department hosts up to 10 auctions each year, where the strength of our brand and superb location combine to achieve the very best results for our consignors.
With the move of our prestigious 142 year old numismatic business, AH Baldwin & Sons, to 399 Strand we now also offer collectors and investors the opportunity to secure selections of rare coins, tokens, medals and bank notes from a single location. Baldwin’s is one of the oldest and largest numismatic dealers and auctioneers in the world, holding auctions in London, Hong Kong and New York. Together with Stanley Gibbons’ investment department we are able to offer investors balanced and diversified portfolios of investment grade collectibles from our offices in London, Jersey, Hong Kong and Singapore.
The purchase of Mallett Antiques following last year’s acquisition of Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions creates a uniquely hybrid dealer/auctioneer in the market for fine and decorative arts, antiques, jewellery and other valuables. Together with Stanley Gibbons’ philatelic authority and Baldwin’s numismatic expertise we are creating a powerful group of brands operating at the pinnacle of the global collectibles market and thereby optimally placed to serve the broadest collecting needs of our clients.
