1.) Laurens Schulman b.v.

We are a long-standing family company that is rich in tradition. Laurens’ great-grandfather Jacob Schulman, an antiquarian in Amersfoort, started a sales list for coins and medals back in 1880. In 1902 he moved to Amsterdam where his sons André and Maurits carried on the family business. Together with his wife Leny, Jacques Schulman (André’s son) subsequently succeeded in building the company’s international reputation.

In the late 1960s the company was further strengthened when their sons Robert and Laurens got involved. After their parents retired from the business, Laurens Schulman and his wife Carla founded a company under their own name in Bussum in 1987.

Following various setbacks including robbery, theft and illness, we sold our stock including our library in 2006 and had permission to use the name Schulman for a new company with the aim of safeguarding continuity for our customers. However, our company Laurens Schulman b.v. has never actually ceased to exist and we have continued to perform taxations, act as intermediaries and provide advice over the past few years.

5 generations

We have realised that passion for collecting really is in our blood. In view of this, and combined with the interest and enthusiasm of our daughter Yvette (who is now the fifth generation!), we have decided to now promote our services more publicly through a webshop.
