Hi - I'm completely new to coins and largely just fascinated by history & wanting to own a part of it. I'm looking at silburycoins.co.uk which I understand to be a reputable dealer. My question is this - assuming that by buying from a site like that I assume I'll be paying "retail" prices rather than hunting bargins, are the prices fair? Do I need to become an expert on valuations or can I assume that a coin priced at, say, £300, is reasonably priced? I'm happy to pay a sensible markup to get through a reputable dealer however am I being sensible doing so? Are the prices such that I'd be a muppet to buy from online retailers and should I be doing proper research myself first? I guess I'm asking whether its acceptable to simply shop at places like this online or whether I'd be fleeced. Is there somewhere else I should be shopping?
