About us

This web-site is the result of over 30 years' work building up THE stock of the finest looking German coins on the market. 

No apologies for some of the prices as the quality of what we offer often bears no comparison.  I am a sucker for beauty and have always bought the coins which experience has dictated: "This is the best".  Also, I am a sucker for original, massivly coloured coins.  Sometimes I have bought "second best" when the eye-appeal was simply too much to let pass by.  Have a look at we have to offer: everything is something special. Most of our coins are by far "Top of the Pops", sometimes by several grades.  A few aren't the Top but are visually so lovely that they'll beat some of the Tops by a mile.

And for a collector of German Empire Coins looking to put together a #1 set, we are your #1 source, with a BIG portion of TLC, and a LOVE of beautiful coins.
