Expert Numismatist & Rare Coin Dealer

I have been an Expert Numismatist, Professional Numismatist, or if you prefer, a Rare Coin Dealer for almost forty years. In some years I have maintained in my inventory thousands of coins worth in aggregate multiple millions of dollars, and some year’s very little inventory at all. As my clientele has become more sophisticated over time, I have found that maintaining a large inventory is actually counterproductive to me and in conflict of the interests of my clients.
With only respect intended to my colleges who prefer to stock boxes of coins worth tens of millions of dollars, we have found that no matter what coins we or they happen to have in inventory at any particular moment, except by chance, these coins rarely match the collecting needs or investment objectives of our clients. It is therefore more cost objective for us to purchase or broker the coins that our clients want to acquire on a one by one basis as they are wanted or needed. By not having a large stock, we can bypass the interest on the capital money tied up in additional inventory, the additional cost of the insurance on that inventory, and all the associated costs of security on that inventory, the expenses of which are not passed on to our clients.
While of course we always have some inventory, it always only consists of coins that we have purchased at a particularly favorable price, coins that we feel are grossly under valued, or coins on memo to us by customers who no longer want to own them for any one of a variety of reasons. We do not stock coins that we would not own personally for the long haul, regardless of cost.
