Greg Roberts Joins the PCGS CoinFacts Coin Dealer Hall of Fame

Did you know Stack’s Bowers Galleries CEO, Greg Roberts, was
inducted into the PCGS CoinFacts Coin Dealer Hall of Fame?  Every year, PCGS inducts a small handful of
distinguished dealers into the Hall of Fame. 
Congratulations Greg on receiving this prestigious honor!


Here is an excerpt from the PCGS Press Release:

“Greg Roberts chalks up his illustrious career to “being in the
right place at the right time.” But in reality, his successes have been built
on more than serendipity. He got his start around 1978 hitting the bourse floor
at a time when many of the coin dealers who were prominent during the Great
Depression and post-war hobby boomtimes were still active and yet when many of
today’s leading marketplace figures were just getting their starts. “Being able
to work with some of the early people in the business was great,” he recalls.
“I’ve been lucky,” says Roberts, adding a piece of wisdom for those

U.S. rare coin auction market and purchasing A-Mark Precious Metals, which he
had turned into a powerhouse.”

Among the numismatists Robert’s career arc has had a pivotal
influence on is PCGS President Brett Charville. “Greg’s ability to get big
deals done has always been a hallmark of his career, but the term ‘big deals’
isn’t limited to just trading coins when it comes to Greg. His acquisitions of
A-Mark, Stack’s Bowers Galleries, Carter Numismatics, and numerous other
numismatic companies now ensure that Mr. Roberts is at the forefront of every
