Our Approach


THE NEW YORK SALE was established for the purpose of providing the utmost access to quality numismatic items across the globe. From London to Switzerland to New York to Los Angeles. Our reach brings in the best coins available on the market today.

Our Story

Coming together for one of the largest annual numismatic events (The New York International Numismatic Convention) the group holds three auctions on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of the week-long conference in January and has held over 47 auctions since its conception. By combining a vast array of experience and knowledge the group strives to offer the best service to their clients and customers. Whether you are buying at the auction or a potential vendor for the sale, any member of the group can offer advice. Catalogues are produced to the highest possible standard and may be kept as a useful reference for serious buyers and coin collectors.

Over the years the group has aimed to achieve the best possible prices for their vendors and undertakes a marketing strategy which is proven by the excellent results achieved year upon year. In 2004 the sale of an 1825 Russian silver Rouble for US$603,750 broke the world record price achieved for any non-US coin sold by public auction and since then lots have regularly attained prices well above estimates. In 2008 results from the Italian section of the sale made a staggering US$1,118,400, four times the pre-sale estimate. The famous Prospero collection of Ancient Greek coins was professionally presented by the group in 2012 and resulted in numerous world records, finally realizing in excess of US$26,000,000 for the 642 lots after 8 hours of auctioneering. The printed auction catalogue will remain a major reference work for many years to come and is a ‘must have’ for any collector of the series.

In November of 2005, the Goldbergs privately sold the world-renowned King of Siam Set for a record-breaking $8.5 million.

About Us


Münzen und Medaillen AG (M&M) was established in Basel, Switzerland in 1941. The founders were the brothers Dr. Erich Cahn and Dr. Herbert Cahn, professional numismatists, together with several eminent Swiss collectors. M&M became well-known in the post WWII period for its monthly fixed price lists, a series which continued for over 60 years. The firm has also conducted over 100 auctions, including great collections such as the Rosen (Ancient electrum), Bally (Roman), Kohlmoos (crown-sized coins) Sutter (Italy and Sicily) and many others. In partnership with Leu Numismatik, M&M also auctioned the Kunstfrend and Niggeler collections.

In the 1990s, Dr. Hans Voegtli assumed responsibility for Ancient coins and Dr. Bernhard Schulte for Medieval and modern coins. In 1996, M&M Numismatics opened in Washington, DC with Lucien Birkler as managing director. In 1997, M&M Deutschland opened in Weil am Rein, Germany, with Joachim Stollhoff as managing director. The Basel office closed in 2004, but both the American and German firms remain active. Today both companies continue the long tradition of serving collectors and look forward to serving your numismatics needs now and in the future.
