About Dart Silver LTD

Situated within the Central belt of Scotland (UK), we are a small, family run business.  Indeed, we traded in silver for many years before forming Dart Silver Ltd in 2006.

As we are collectors ourselves, we fully appreciate that money is hard earned!  For this reason we therefore try to provide informative descriptions as well as high quality photographic images of all our items.  Hopefully this will make your purchase as smooth as possible.

Having a good rapport with our ever growing list of repeat customers is important to us.  You will therefore always find us to be professional and enthusiastic in our dealings with you.

While we obviously have to make a living, we strive very hard to offer goods at competitive prices.  In many instances this is at large discounts compared to other dealers or traders.

Above all, we very much appreciate your decision to stop by for a visit and thank you in advance should you decide to shop with us.  Even if you don’t make a purchase this time, please feel free to stop by again soon as we regularly add new stock items.
