We’ve been trading as coin dealers since 1982, always based in London but travelling widely in Europe, to USA and to the Far East in the intervening years. We’re not bullion traders but concentrate on numismatic collectibles, things which aren’t necessarily linked to their metal value but to their historical and social interest.
We also used to organise the London Coin Fair (for nearly 30 years!), first at the Cumberland Hotel and then at the Holiday Inn in Bloomsbury where it continues to be held, under the management of Mike and Lu Veissid.
Normally we just buy and sell but in 2013 Simmons Gallery, Howard and Frances Simmons, were awarded the British Art Medal Society’s President’s medal as well as the Marsh award for achievement in promoting medallic art.
