David Lawrence Rare Coins (DLRC) has come together with one of the most prominent rare coin collectors of our time, Dell Loy Hansen, to launch him into the business. After offering his personal services as an advisor to Mr. Hansen, president and owner of DLRC John Brush witnessed first-hand Mr. Hansen’s passion for coins. This exciting collaboration led to the company enthusiastically welcoming Dell Loy Hansen as a permanent fixture and partner at David Lawrence Rare Coins.
Mr. Hansen, or Dell Loy as he is better known by his friends, is widely recognized as the owner of several very successful businesses, including the Real Salt Lake Major League Soccer team. Dell Loy began his numismatic journey into collecting as a young man. However, as his businesses thrived, he took a hiatus from the hobby he had grown to love. About 18 months ago, his interest in the hobby was piqued anew as he began to work on his collection again. In that brief period of time, Mr. Hansen has acquired an impressive number of coins and several complete collections, with a focus on the PCGS Registry Sets.
His ultimate goal, however, has developed into forming a collection that would rival the king of collectors, Louis Eliasberg.
During this time of acquisition, he and Mr. Brush formed a friendship and partnership working together to add several major pieces to his collection. After numerous dealings, Mr. Hansen sought Brush’s help in curating his collection as well. As a result, the two have collaborated for several months and realized the immense potential in working together professionally, and with the Dell Loy Hansen Collection.
“It’s been an honor to work with Mr. Hansen and his coin collection,” John Brush said. “The roots of DLRC began with David Lawrence Feigenbaum, a collector who started the company in 1979 and grew it with the collector in mind. From humble beginnings, the company has always strived to help collectors build and sell their collections. In the end, it only made sense that we form an official relationship that allows us to work together with one of the most prominent collectors in the country.
“We look forward to helping Mr. Hansen grow and improve his collection and make it one of the most complete collections of U.S. coins ever assembled. In addition to his access to huge capital for future deals, Dell Loy also brings many years of experience in mentoring young business leaders like myself and partnering with a variety of businesses to help them achieve growth and scale that might not be possible otherwise. Myself and the excellent long-time staff at DLRC look forward to utilizing his skills into further growth at David Lawrence.”
