Founded in 1666, this is Spink’s 350th year of being a business famed for its reputation of outstanding service in the collectibles world. Amongst the celebration of such a marvelous achievement there will be many new innovations bound to keep Spink in its well established spot at the forefront of the collectibles world. In true Spink style this has been implemented from the very beginning of this important year with the appointment of a new Numismatics Consignment Director, Muriel Eymery in our office in New York, USA.
Spink has carved a name for itself in the Numismatic world as one of providing consistently outstanding material from around the world, like the iconic 1794 ‘flowing hair’ silver US dollar which sold for an incredible $430,100 in New York last year and the spectacular Liberty Collection of Irish and English medals pertaining to the Easter Uprising of 1916 due to be sold in the coming auction: The Numismatic Collector’s Series on January 27-28, 2016.
Prior to joining Spink, Muriel Eymery was Vice President of International Business Development at PCGS, Collectors Universe Inc. since 2007, and in charge of PCGS international activities outside the USA. She jump-started their worldwide presence, engaging new clients and developing and heading distribution networks and new grading offices in Europe (Paris), Asia (Hong Kong) and PRC (Shanghai). Before this, she was Director of B to B & Public Agencies and Head Export Americas at Monnaie de Paris, the French Mint, for four years, where she led the growth of commemorative coin and medal issues, corporate programs and managed institutional relationships. She also drove the American expansion by securing top tier distributors and media coverage with the United States Postal Services, ANA or museums. With such experience in a global outlook, we are sure she will fit in at Spink!
Muriel Eymery will be working very closely with our numismatic specialists in London, Hong Kong, Singapore and Lugano and we are sure she will be a great asset in maintaining Spink’s dominance in numismatics around the world. Known for her good judgement in a market regrettably plagued by fakes this is an essential step forward in continuing to raise standards of professionalism and integrity.
Commenting on her appointment, Olivier Stocker, CEO and chairman of Spink, said: “We are delighted to welcome Muriel to Spink, where we believe she will be a true asset to our collectibles business as the Director of Numismatic Consignments. Her knowledge on the subject and valuable experience in key subjects that are core to our business will mean that Spink can offer even more expertise in the field of collectibles to its clients around the globe.”
