Stack’s Bowers Galleries Opening a New Location in Philadelphia

Did you know that Stack’s Bowers Galleries is opening a new
rare coin gallery in historic Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Located at 1735
Market Street on the corner of 18th Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard, the
new gallery is situated in the heart of Center City, in the midst of the area’s
best dining, shopping, and entertainment. It is just blocks away from such
iconic landmarks as the Comcast Center, Reading Terminal, and beautiful
Philadelphia City Hall. It is also a 15-minute walk to the 30th Street Amtrak
station, granting convenient access to collectors across the entire Northeast.
Renovations are currently under way and the firm hopes to open the 1735 Market
Street storefront to collectors in late summer 2021. With the opening of this
new gallery, Stack’s Bowers Galleries is thrilled to unite America’s greatest
numismatic city with the country’s most accomplished rare coin firm.

This Philadelphia location will offer the firm’s entire
range of numismatic services. Collectors will be able to sell their coins and
paper money for top market value and browse an extensive selection of items
available for direct purchase. The gallery will also serve as an important
resource for gold and silver bullion trading, appraisals, and auction
expertise.



The Philadelphia gallery will be led by Head Numismatic
Trader Robert Avena, one of the industry’s most respected experts. Mr. Avena
has been active in the rare coin industry for many decades, having started his
own coin firm in the early 1980s before joining Stack’s Bowers Galleries in
2000. During that time, he has attended every major convention and auction and
has handled the most valuable rarities in United States coinage. Mr. Avena is a
proud member of the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) and is a life member
of the American Numismatic Association (ANA), the Silver Dollar Round Table,
and the Florida United Numismatics (FUN). The firm is eager to grow their team
at the new gallery and is seeking to hire experienced numismatic specialists,
along with shipping and administrative staff. Interested candidates are invited
to send resumes and cover letters to [email protected].



“We are very excited to enter the Philadelphia market,
particularly in such a great location in the heart of Center City,” said
Stack’s Bowers Galleries President Brian Kendrella. “This city and its
collectors have been crucial to the history and success of our business, and we
are proud to have a new home in Philadelphia.”



For over 85 years, Stack’s Bowers Galleries has served as
the hobby’s premier resource for collectors. Established in 1933 by brothers
Joseph and Morton Stack, Stack’s Rare Coins quickly grew to become the nation’s
leading numismatic firm. Stack’s Rare Coins held their first auction sale in
1935 and served as an official distributor of United States Mint commemoratives
in 1936. Their first auction at the American Numismatic Association’s annual
summer convention took place in 1939, an honor that the firm has maintained in
recent decades. The merger of Stack’s Rare Coins with American Numismatic
Rarities in 2006, and then with Bowers and Merena in 2011, integrated the
world’s greatest numismatic minds under one enterprise, and Stack’s Bowers
Galleries is proud to offer that world-class expertise to all of its clients.



The debut of the firm’s Philadelphia location is the latest
in a series of improvements by Stack’s Bowers Galleries aimed at delivering
superior value and service to their clients. The firm recently opened a new
flagship gallery at 470 Park Avenue in New York City as well as a new corporate
headquarters at 1550 Scenic Avenue in Costa Mesa, California. In addition,
their acquisitions of Carter Numismatics and the Coins in Motion imaging
technology enhance the firm’s portfolio of world-renowned expertise and innovative
technology. For more information about the Philadelphia rare coin gallery or to
