Using the auction

Every coin tells its own story and is a tangible piece of history.

His enthusiasm was sparked by his grandfather’s coin collection, and Ruud de Jong has now been collecting for 20 years. As a historian and numismatist, he is fascinated by the story of the past told by each coin. This is how a coin becomes a tangible part of history. He is particularly interested in coins from the provincial era and in Dutch kingdom coins.

Ruud’s knowledge of coins and history comes together when he assesses the lots. This background knowledge is an important source for him, because every province and even major cities used to mint their own coins, so there are a wide variety of coins in circulation. He also handles the lots with an eye for detail. Together with his colleagues, Ruud is committed to creating beautiful weekly auctions with a wide variety of interesting coins.
