Donating stamps and coins

Do you have an old stamp collection lurking in the loft or a stash of foreign coins at the back of a drawer?

Used stamps, coins, banknotes and other collectables such as medals and badges can be donated to your local Oxfam shop for us to pass on to our specialists. If you are a collector, you can buy donated stamps and coins in the Oxfam Online Shop or find your nearest specialist Oxfam shop.

Donating stamps

Oxfam has around 50 specialist stamp departments, run by experienced and knowledgeable volunteers. All stamps are carefully valued and priced. Albums and collections are particularly welcome, but we accept all used stamps (foreign or UK).

For further information, please email Shop Support at support@oxfam.org.uk.

Donating coins

Some of our specialist stamp departments also sort and sell coins. Others save donations of currency for collection by Travelex, who count every coin and note received and reimburse Oxfam according to the current exchange rate. Even obsolete currencies such as those replaced by the Euro are accepted and of some value.
