John began coin collecting as a youngster in Indiana. His love for the hobby blossomed and he became a full time dealer. After attending coin shows for years, he decided he would like to promote some coin shows on his own and that was the beginning of the Arizona Coin Expo.


Sandy is the worker bee behind the scenes assisting in every aspect. You will see her bustling around the coin shows always promoting the next show.

We attend over 40 shows per year all over the United States. Because of that we started the Arizona Coin Expo in 1990. We pride ourselves on being able to look at a show from the dealer’s point of view.

Treating our dealers as we would like to be treated is our motto. Since that first show we sponsored in Arizona, we have sponsored or been responsible for the Las Vegas Coin Fair, the LVNS yearly club show and many others in one capacity or another.

We pride ourselves in fulfilling our commitment with our best. John and Sandy are both life members of the American Numismatic Association. John is also a member of MSNS, ISNA, FUN, CSNS, and many other numismatic associations.
