It is really appreciated.

Thank you so much for this Rolls Royce service. The coin arrived safely much to [grandson's] amazement and delight. 
He’s now honing up on Constantine to astonish his teacher – not to say his classmates.
Thank you also for the access to the website – I’m sure the information will be very useful and I found it fascinating. 
If we find our way up to Hadrian’s Wall this summer – who knows what this little coin may start - we’ll call in.

Just to let you know I picked my coins up from the Royal Mail depot yesterday.  I am very impressed with the quality of each.  You warned me that the Elizabeth I was a small coin and I didn't know what to expect but I am very pleased with the detail and am glad I purchased the same. I shall certainly buy more coins in the future.
P.D., Lancashire

K.W., Lancashire

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Having sought far and wide to purchase a roman coin for my wife's birthday I found a website that was genuine in its offerings.  In so many cases the offerings were either sold or just not there or too expensive. The Hadrian coins website displayed exactly the coin that has now been delivered to me securely.  The coin was much better than I half expected it to be and will I hope provide the surprise that I am seeking for my wife. I would encourage anyone wishing to make a purchase of genuine coins to use the services of John and Julie Higham as they provided outstanding service. 

A very satisfied customer,
S.B., Worcestershire

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just wanted to send a quick email to confirm the delivery of my coin. It is even better than I'd hoped.  I also wanted to thank you for the very prompt  and excellent customer service you gave keeping me updated throughout via email.  And I really appreciated the courtesy slip with the extra info about the coins' London origin. It all helps fill in the coin's history for me. This is my first coin but I somehow think it won't be my last. And as I only live a couple of hours away. I hope to come visit your shop sometime soon.

P.T., Barrow-in-Furness

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for the excellent ____ and ____ which arrived today and thanks also for taking the time to include the additional historical information about the artefacts, which was fascinating to read.  An exemplary service as usual.  I look forward to doing business with you again sometime soon.

C.N., North Humberside

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Many thanks for sending my coins. I recently enjoyed a break in Northumberland
which included some walks along Hadrian's Wall so am delighted to have this as a souvenir!
Also the Antoninus Pius silver denarius has a superbly detailed portrait of the emperor - a quality coin indeed.
I hope to purchase more coins from yourselves in the future.

T.W., Greater Manchester

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for the excellent coin which arrived today, very much appreciated! And thanks also for reserving them all for me over the past few weeks. By the way, if you do get any more hoard coins in, then please let me know, as I'd like to build on that collection in the future. And I'll keep a look out on your website for any new coins that interest me. Once again, many thanks for providing such an excellent service as usual, always a pleasure

Thanks so much for everything,

R.B., Virginia, U.S.A.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I wanted to let you know the coin arrived today - it is beautiful. It is the first Roman coin I have ever seen in person or held. It is heavier than I expected. I guess I knew it was roughly the size of a US penny, but didn't realize it would be a lot chunkier!  I am very happy with the service and the time you took to answer all my questions.

C.S., Kentucky, U.S.A.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Many thanks for the excellent roman coins which arrived today - I was particularly chuffed with the Trajan brass sestertius which had tons of character to it, an thanks also for the extra info. on the Roman Emperors, which was fascinating to read.  The certificate for the hoard coin, which also included the history behind its discovery was invaluable.  All in all one couldn't have asked for a better service, and I look forward to buying from you again soon.

Thank you for the Grassmoor hoard coin which arrived yesterday.

I have inspected the coin more closely this morning. I am very pleased with it. It is a really nice piece, and from a well known, documented, hoard too ! It will fit well in my collection. I will definitely be looking over the other items that you have listed, and would like to hear what other Constantinian coins you might have.

I really am chuffed with it  -  thank you very much.

S.McA., Edinburgh
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The service was quick and efficient. John went into the shop on his day off to send the coin to me once I'd placed the order and it arrived promptly the next day, so I can't fault the customer service. My partner was delighted - it was for his 50th birthday and he had wanted a silver hadrian coin for some time - and the condition was much better than he expected.
SF, East Sussex

RC, Gloucestershire

When my 8-year old daughter decided to save up her pocket money to buy a genuine Roman coin, we found Hadrian Coins on the internet and browsed their website to get an idea of the cost. When the moment came to make a purchase, Julie and John were a great help, sending us photographs by email of several options. The service was excellent and the coin arrived overnight, together with some background information and a certificate of authenticity. My daughter was delighted.

D.B., Glasgow
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks for the coin and your prompt efficient service, also delighted with the information that you provided with it. Its' a present for a friend and we're sure he'll be as pleased as we are! Definitely be back for more.

When I was back to Germany I sough about a gratification for my self in memory for the nice Hadrian´s Wall trip. The purchase should be of course from England, also from a shop near the Hadrian's Wall.  I found the Antiqueshop in Carlisle from the Internet. I thought I try there to buy a coin from Emperor Hadrian. The correspondence was very pleasant. I had opportunity on the web page to choose the coin for me. Super!  I did  the payment with the MasterCard. Few days later, I received a wonderful coin of the Emperor Hadrian . The carrying out was perfect. I have a genuine  Hadrian's silver coin from antique shop (www.souvenirantiques.co.uk), for my good memories.

My big thanks to Julie and John Higham, they made me very happy. Also my best thanks to all information and pictures about the history of the Hadrian's`Wall  I receives from John. Excellent! John did a lot of work therefore.

W.W., Freiburg, Germany
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My initial enquiry was answered very quickly and helpfully, and once I had paid for the coins they were delivered very promptly and were well-packaged and exactly as described. I'd certainly order from Hadrian Coins again.
