14 March 2016

Wilkes & Curtis Ltd are proud to announce the launch of a new joint venture, "Horizon Auction," to be held in conjunction with the preeminent American firm, Stephen Album Rare Coins, Inc. The first sale will take place on October 2, 2016. These sales will combine the vast knowledge and experience of the two companies and will focus on their key areas of expertise: Islamic and Indian coins. Their combined expertise will create a catalogue of specialized numismatic offerings expected to be second to none. The first sale will take place at the highly prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel, 86-90 Park Lane, in London. This will be Wilkes & Curtis' first live auction and the first auction held outside the United States by Stephen Album Rare Coins.

Matt Curtis from Wilkes & Curtis was very positive about the joint venture saying, "As a growing company it is a great privilege for us to be working closely with an established and highly respected company like Stephen Album Rare Coins. We have successfully shown during our first two years of trading that we are a significant presence in the world of coin collecting and are happy to help our friends and colleagues conduct an event in our home town."

Joe Lang from Stephen Album Rare Coins said, "We are excited to be holding a live auction in London as we feel London is a prime location in the international world of numismatics and a great place for business. When the opportunity came along to hold a joint auction with Wilkes & Curtis we were pleased to get involved, as their strong business ethics and top level customer services are a perfect match with ours."
