It really depends on what coins Tray,

There is a auction house I can recommend. One of the members here uses them and have bought and sold from them quite a lot.
@Fortune8 is the one to ask. If you do not get a reply from him I will call him and speak to him directly to ensure you get a answer.

There are UK online price guides for the coins you have.

If you're in the UK -

If they're not really valuable (say, less than a 1oz gold coin), then either TSF or one of the facebook groups is a good starting point.  You could also try ebay.

If they're going to be worth more than a few hundred quid and they're numismatically interesting, you could try coins of the realm auctions.  COTR have no buyer's premium so they're quite a bit more efficient than a traditional auction house.

If you have a lot to sell, Backyard Bullion offers a brokerage service, and he has a pretty decent reach these days.  He charges a commission of £1/oz of silver or £25/oz of gold.  He's taken a break over christmas, but he might start up again fairly soon.  You could try getting in touch with him.
