I began this collection in February 2005 and was really inspired by the Eliasberg Auction of ANR in May 2005 to expand my collection. Since that time world gold has been my primary interest.
I want a very eclectic mix of coins in my collection without any concentration on any particuliar century, country or denomination (although the European Low Countries are a specialty area for me). I like unique coins exhibiting qualities of rarity, popularity and historical significance; ducats and hammered gold are some of my favorite types.
I try to catalog both the numismatic details as well interesting notes about the coin, or it’s design theme; that I have found while researching the coins. Through my continuing research, my cataloging continues to be refreshed with new coin details as I discover them.
I'm always looking for a coin worthy of being added to my collection
