Are there any coin collectors in Sheffield?

Tried looking but unable to find any answers. 

 

I've got two Elizabeth I coins (a Sixpence and a Shilling) I am looking to sell but wanted to see what I'd be offered before parting with them. 

 

If anyone is able to direct me to the right person, that'd be greatly appreciated.

Sixpence is 1571. The head side is mostly faded but can see the crown and outline of Elizabeth I. The text around the edge is almost clear, some parts faded. The stamp side can clearly see 1571 dated, the outline and most of the text. Some detail is faded.

Shilling dated roughly 1592 - 5. The head side has a clear outline, but details are faded. The text on outside is rather blurred. The stamp on other side has most of the outline and detail, some faded areas.

(Not sure if pictures will show, but they are below.)

As has been mentioned before on a similar topic, if you go to Elsecar Heritage Centre, there is a antique shop there, and a guy who deals in old coins, the shop itself is well worth a visit if you like that sort of thing.

Oh that's really interesting! Was trying to avoid ebay as the prices are all over the place and I'd have no idea if anyone would try take advantage. Would love to try get what I think they're worth. The shilling I was expecting around that range, genuinely surprised about the sixpence. May do some further research!

I did have someone mention Elsecar in person a while back. Been meaning to visit so hopefully once the current guidelines are more acceptable, I'll definitely make a trip.

Iv'e got a Quality Street tin full of old coins, used to be a bit of a coin collector myself, some are over 200 yrs old.

Worked with cash all my working life, so picked up some interesting coins, probably worth a tenner now. lost interest when decimalisation took place.
