Laurence and Margaret Andrews started their coin business in Leicester in the early 1970's, trading under the name of Laurence Andrews. Airedale Coins was not established until 1978, when the business moved to Bingley in West Yorkshire. Bingley is a market town in the middle of the Airedale Valley in the Yorkshire Dales, from which the name Airedale was taken. Recently the name has been shortened to Airedale Co., purely for security reasons, it is wise not to advertise that packets and parcels may contain valuable items.
The Business is 100% Mail Order, and we specialise in giving a highly efficient and competitively priced service to our clients. We offer a personal service and are always happy to talk on the telephone to customers about their requirements. We sometimes visit coin fairs, and may meet clients face to face, but, as a general rule, all transactions are by mail.
The main business has tended to focus on new issues, particularly from the UK, but, with this website, we have increased the number of older issues.
We are long established members of both the ANA (American Numismatic Association) and the BNTA (British Numismatic Trade Association.
|Please note we are a 100% mail order company. this enables us to give a very efficient service at competitive prices.|
