MA-Shops is an online marketplace for world and ancient coins. Built from the ground up by German engineer Joachim Schwiening, MA-Shops has assembled a network of reputable European dealers–both large and small–onto one, easy-to-use platform. In recent months, Schwiening and MA-Shops have made a concerted push into the American market, competing with such websites as eBay and Amazon.
Unlike the competition, however, MA-Shops is solely dedicated to numismatic and other collectibles. Browsing through the site quickly reveals how wide and variegated the selection from MA-Shops and its associated dealers really is.
And the number of dealers only keeps growing. Here are three new coin shops that have come onboard in just the last month:
Niemczyk Antykwariat Numizmatyczny (Michael Niemczyk Numismatic Antiquarian)
The largest coin dealer in Poland and a leader in the Polish numismatic auction industry, Michael Niemczyk’s firm was the first from Poland to be admitted to the International Association of Professional Numismatists (IAPN). Now the company brings its unique expertise and market dominance to MA-Shops.
Niemczyk Antykwariat Numizmatyczny sells Ancient, Medieval and Modern World coins (including Polish, Russian and German coins, of course), as well as Classic U.S. coins, World banknotes, medals, orders, awards and documents pertaining to military history. Their online stock also includes notable bullion coins from around the globe, such as the Austrian Gold Philharmonic and the South African Krugerrand.
Niemczyk’s shop is just getting started, so if you like what you see be sure to click on the link near the upper right corner of the page to follow their shop and create a user name on MA-Shops like you would on Amazon or eBay. This way, you’ll be notified when the shop adds more coins to its inventory this month.
Tom Vossen is a small numismatic and antiquities dealership based in the Netherlands that specializes in Ancient coins. In business since 2001, the firm continues to expand its presence online and MA-Shops is excited to welcome Mr. Vossen and his decades of collecting experience to the MA-Shop community.
On his shop, you’ll find Ancient Greek and Eastern Mediterranean coins (including Persian, Phoenician, Judaean and Cypriot coinage), Ancient Roman coins (including coinage of the Republic, the Empire and provincial imperial coinage), and Ancient Celtic coins–a particular specialty of Mr. Vossen’s.
As noted above, follow Vossen for updates as new coins are posted.
Munthandel Oost-Brabandt (Currency Trading East Brabant)
Munthandel Oost-Brabandt specializes in World banknotes. The company was founded in 1980 by Martin van Berkom, a dealer with over 40 years experience buying and selling currency and paper money from every continent. His shop on MA-Shops.com already has quite an extensive selection.
In addition to following Munthandel Oost-Brabandt, Vossen and Niemczyk on MA-Shops.com, don’t forget to take advantage of the site’s robust sort and search functions, which allow you to sort by grade, price, year of issue, country of origin and how long ago the item was listed.
At any rate, these are but a few of the shops available on MA-Shops.com. Together, the selection of rare coins, currency, medals and other collectibles dwarfs what until now has usually been found in the U.S. coin market.
