What is antiques insurance?
Antiques insurance is a specialised type of insurance designed to protect valuable and rare items which can be classified as antiques. To help understand the wide variety of items that can be classified as an antiques - here are some examples of items that have been insured under an antiques insurance policy in the past:
- Stamp collections
- Coin collection and medals
- Toys, including Matchbox and Dinky, Meccano and Lego sets
- Clocks, barometers and mechanical art
- Fountain pen collections
- Samurai swords
- Antique sewing machines
Ultimately, if you can’t or wouldn’t replace an antique item as new, then you should consider insuring it under an antiques or collectibles section of a Private Client/High Net Worth Home insurance policy. That way you could be compensated if a precious item gets damaged or lost. Otherwise, you can consider a specialist, standalone, antiques insurance policy.
