I was born and was raised on the West Side of Manchester, New Hampshire (near where Bob's Coins is located). During my childhood years, I developed a lifelong interest in coin collecting. Initially, it was just a hobby, and I went about pursuing a college education thinking that it would stay that way. However, after graduating from Saint Anselm College in 1972, I realized that I had a good opportunity to try turning my hobby into a full-fledged business. I've never looked back, and Bob's Coins has been a great source of enjoyment in my life since then.
I eventually saved enough money to purchase the current location on Kelley Street. Bob's Coins moved there the year I married my wife, Doris, in 1978. During my more than four decades in business, I have seen many markets, including the gold spike in early 1980 as well as some lean years in the 1980s and 1990s. What has kept me in business all these years is a passionate belief in what I sell, my focus on customer service, and my willingness to charge consistently fair prices for my goods. Whether you are a collector or an investor, I look forward to helping you build the coin and bullion collection that you desire.
