I have been a professional numismatist since 1990. Until 2005 I was a cataloguer and auctioneer for two of London's principal numismatic auctioneers, which included the cataloguing and sale preparation of the six thousand silver coins of the fifteenth century Reigate Hoard, sold at auction in 1992, and taking numismatic auctions in Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai as well as London. In 2005 I launched my independent coin and medal dealing business and consultancy, Charles Riley Coins & Medals. Recent successes have included placing a million pound collection of quality British coins on the London auction market, including of one of the finest examples of the famous New South Wales 'Holey Dollar' of 1813. As an enthusiastic collector of coins since the 1970s, my initial collecting interests were in British and French medieval coinage. Latterly I developed a particular interest in Commemorative Medals both British and foreign.
