Atlas Numismatics

james_ricksFounded in New York in 2013, Atlas Numismatics is a rare coin dealership with a particular focus on world coins of exceptional quality. We also buy and sell a select range of ancient and United States coins. Our aim is to serve clients who wish to buy and sell in a friendly and professional setting.

Atlas Numismatics president James Ricks gained his numismatic experience while working at Northeast Numismatics in Massachusetts for eighteen years, including fourteen years as director of the world coin department. During this time he participated in some of the most important world coin auctions, both domestically and abroad: John Jay Pittman, Eliasberg, Irving Goodman, Van Roekel, Samuel King, Bentley, Caballero de las Yndias, and Archer M. Huntington to name a few.

1905 Silver, Nickel and copper 7 piece Proof set [BELOW]

Mr. Ricks also helped form a number of significant private collections. Some rarities he has handled for clients include an uncirculated British Charles I 1644 Oxford mint Triple Unite, multiple 1839 Una and the Lion Victoria Five Pounds, several proof strikings of Russian platinum issues, and a very rare Japanese gold Kyoho Oban (circa 1725).

We travel extensively to maintain our high standard of material; previous buying trips have led us to Great Britain, Germany, Switzerland, France, Italy, Spain, Austria, Ireland, San Marino, Belgium, and Japan.
