About Honest Coin Shop
We have a love of rare coins, currency, and other precious treasure. They have real value, they teach us about history, and they have an intrinsic beauty. We started as one small partnership under the umbrella of Hudson Valley Numismatics, doing written appraisals, helping settle and divide estates, and buying and selling individual pieces and large collections. Realizing a need to serve customers outside our range, we launched a New York City-based site, and now proudly serve residents from the entire Tri-state region.
A Global Perspective
I was born in Belarus and achieved both a Bachelor's degree in English from Minsk State Linguistic University and Associate's degree in Business Administration from the Borough of Manhattan Community College. I am also a graduate of the American Numismatic Association's Seminar series, where we complete annual coursework in coin authentication, grading, valuation, and sales. I have a keen interest in both U.S. and International coinage and currency, as well as medallic art and bullion. I speak English and Russian fluently, which helps bridge the gap between U.S. communities and abroad.

A Lifetime of Learning
I hold a B.A. in Historical Archaeology from Wesleyan University, and an M.A. in Science Education from Columbia University. I have over 30 years of experience collecting and dealing in rare items, and enjoy meeting people and hearing stories about the things that they have. I publish and write articles and books on science and numismatic education.
We Proudly Support Local Youth and Education
Our last pro-bono event was the WHUD Spring Kids' Fair at S.U.N.Y. Purchase College, where we taught hundreds of children about rare coins, and gave out more than $1,500 in rare coins as gift-in-kind donations.
