Bonhams follow Spink

Posted on Thu, 8 February 2007 by Phil Mussell - General News, Coin News, Medal News, Banknote News

After moves by Spink last week to increase their buyer's premium on all lots up to £2,000 Bonhams have announced that they are to follow suit with an increase in their premium to 20% on all lots up to £250,000 (in effect most coin and all banknote and medal lots). The company's premium is currently at 20% for most of their sales but the coin and medal department had, until now, been exempt. Whether the other big houses follow suit remains to be seen
