“This is a small company with a big asset: its brand is imbued with an unblemished reputation for expertise and honest dealing.”
The Times (London), April 8th 2006 , writing about Stanley Gibbons
Located at 399 Strand, across the street from the Savoy Hotel on the River Thames, Stanley Gibbons houses a collection of more than 3 million precious stamps. No other stamp dealer comes close to the quantity and quality of stock and level of expertise that we offer.
Stanley Gibbons set up a designated Investment Department during 2003 to cope with increased interest in rare collectibles as an investment following a wave of positive media interest. The department, based in Guernsey (with offshoots in Jersey and London) has grown considerably since inception and now has a team of Investment Portfolio Managers to look after our clients needs.
Quality and integrity
As the market leader we are able to acquire the finest items on behalf of more than 150,000 clients around the world. Stanley Gibbons only buys and sells material that we verify and authenticate and fundamentally, that we would want to buy ourselves. That’s why we are the only philatelic business that offers you a full lifetime guarantee of authenticity on all purchases.
What we offer you
Our qualified team of experts recommends only the highest grade material for investment, autographs and documents that we believe will increase in value over time. We provide annual valuations for you that allow you to keep up to date with the performance of your investment and can provide helpful advice on when to sell for maximum return.
We also offer you secure storage and insurance facilities in our vaults at 399 Strand, London or offshore at our Guernsey office.
