Dix Noonan Webb Ltd is the UK's leading specialist auctioneers and valuers of coins, tokens, medals, militaria and paper money of all types, expanding into the specialist fields of jewellery, watches and objects of vertu with the opening of the Jewellery department in November 2015. Established in 1990, the company boasts over 250 years' combined experience in this field and stages regular auctions throughout the year.
Directors Nimrod Dix, Pierce Noonan and Christopher Webb each spent some of their formative years at one or more of the country's leading auction houses and dealers. They lead an experienced team of in-house specialist staff, backed up by a worldwide group of knowledgeable regional representatives and consultants.
We held our first auction in 1991. Since then we have sold many important collections and one of our sales in September 2006 was Britain's first numismatic auction to gross over £2 million. In the calendar year 2008 we turned over in excess of £8.1m-worth of material at hammer prices and produced no fewer than 18 different auction catalogues.
Dix Noonan Webb Ltd were the first British numismatic auction house to maximise the benefits of information technology to our business, developing a state-of-the-art catalogue publishing and auction system. This enables us to turn cataloguers' text and electronic images into a searchable, fully illustrated internet catalogue within minutes of a lot being entered and posted online. Later deadlines for entries of material can thus be accommodated, with printed catalogues being despatched less than a week after cataloguing is complete. These production efficiencies benefit buyers and vendors alike and our integrated back office system ensures speedy processing of all transactions with online personal account management.
At Dix Noonan Webb we pride ourselves in providing an unpretentious, friendly service to clients and warmly welcome enquiries from all those wishing to buy or sell at auction. We're also happy to provide free valuations which accurately reflect market trends.
Although our main business is auctioneers and valuers, we also handle a significant number of high value private treaty sales and welcome enquiries from prospective vendors who prefer this method of selling.
