Adam Crum was born in Dallas, TX and was introduced to coin collecting by his father. His fascination with the business grew, and by the time he was 22 years old, it became a full-time enterprise. In addition to being an avid student of U.S. numismatics, he has spent his career helping others to understand how to successfully buy and sell U.S. coins. He has continually published newsletters, books and video programs on rare coins since 1991, has been published in most of the leading coin industry publications and has been a guest on many regional and national broadcast programs. Adam Crum is a member of most of the leading numismatic organizations and currently resides in Southern California with his wife and three children.
