The name Coincraft rings globally with collectors as a traditional family store with Dickensian vibe.
Founded back in 1955 by Richard Lobel, the family-run company is a haven for devoted collectors and dealers where they can peruse British, ancient and world coins, banknotes, medallions, antiquities, exotic items and books.
Coincraft’s dedication to its selling craft is admirable for those who revel in similarly old-fashioned taste. For Richard Lobel and his wife Claire – who is herself well known as an expert on banknotes – their notion is that they still believe ‘helping our collectors is paramount’. If you are visiting the British Museum on London’s Great Russell Street, Coincraft can be found directly opposite.
