Assets from Pobjoy Mint Limited go to auction

Signalling the end of an era after over 58 successful years in the coin market, Pobjoy Mint announced that it was closing at the end of last year; with Taya Pobjoy – their Mintmaster and Managing Director retiring. As a result, there will be an online auction of over 200 lots featuring coining presses, machine tools, fabrication machinery, print and packaging equipment, jewellery equipment, office furniture and more. The online auction will close at 6 p.m. GMT on the 14th February.

Based in Britain, Pobjoy Mint has a reputation for innovation and creativity which was recognised around the world. This included dozens of new techniques, materials, shapes, and finishes. They have celebrated a number of coin and medal firsts since their inception in 1965.

The upcoming online auction is managed through a partnership between Hickman Shearer and AllSurplus, the world’s leading online marketplace for surplus business assets. Highlights of the assets range from coin presses and manufacturing machinery by brands such as Grabener, Schuler, Bruderer, Worcester, to Janvier B&J die cutting and reducing machines and Brandt and Scancoin coin counter, baggers, and elevators. The machine tools feature grinders, lathes, and vertical machining centres. This is along with fabrication and cutting machinery featuring laser cutters, spark eroders, vertical bandsaw, notcher, welders and fly-presses. Plus, finishing machinery, inspection equipment, print and packaging equipment.

The range of lots means the equipment is appealing to an extensive range of audiences, from those involved in the mint and numismatic industry, to metal fabricators, machinists, manufacturing professionals, and also jewellery makers.

The catalogue of assets is now online, and items will be available to view onsite prior by appointment.

“It is an absolute honour to work with such a prestigious and globally recognised brand. The sale of the Pobjoy Mint machinery and equipment builds on the team’s significant expertise and knowledge of asset valuation and sales. The sale also represents a good opportunity to re-purpose and re-distribute kit either back into the industry or for it be used by other industries.” said Tim Howard, Managing Director of Hickman Shearer.
