One of Baldwin’s key goals is it to make numismatics as accessible to all – and to that end the firm strives to make the items on its Fixed Price List as varied as it can. Alongside the exclusive and unique items Baldwin’s also lists any number of numismatic materials for the more modest budget – coins and books that can add significantly to your collection for a good price without compromising on quality.
