Bourne End Auction Rooms

Coins, Medals & Militaria

At Bourne End Auctions we hold regular online and timed auctions for coins, medals and militaria. Tim Langley heads the department and has had keen interest in these fields since an early age. We were fortunate enough to auction a single owner collection of over 500 medals and militaria related items. Among this large and varied collection was a Version 1 Queens South Africa medal. There were only around 50 awarded and can be easily identified from version 2 and 3 by the years 1899-1900 below the wreath. There were telephone bidders, on-line bidders from around the world and local bidders in the room. It eventually sold to a private collector for £5600. Though not the most expensive medal we have sold, it is the history behind it that makes it one of the most interesting, as a version 2nd and 3rd of the medal make in the region of £200.
