Costa Mesa, CA – On the heels of another record year for total prices realized in world coin and currency auctions, Stack’s Bowers Galleries continues to expand with a new office in Vancouver, British Columbia. Leading this venue as Buyer and Consignment Director is Adem Karisik. Adem’s passion for coins and banknotes started at a young age when he began collecting in his early teens. Upon graduating high school, he became a full-time numismatic dealer, eventually founding Karisik Auctions. He provides a wide array of services for all collectors, dealing in items ranging from modest value to solo known rarities. Adem’s expertise encompasses all world banknotes and coins, but he specializes in Canadian and Asian numismatics. Adem enjoys conversing about coins and banknotes with clients and will be a regular presence at major Canadian and U.S. coin shows.
Aris Maragoudakis, Director of World Paper Money for Stack’s Bowers Galleries added, “We are excited to have Adem as part of our World Numismatic Department. His expertise in paper money, along with his experience as a coin dealer, will enhance our already exceptional customer service, providing additional support with appraising, buying, and collecting consignments.”
“Having unsurpassed expertise on the Stack’s Bowers Galleries team is at the heart of all of our business,” commented the firm’s president, Brian Kendrella. “Adem’s knowledge across multiple areas of numismatics make him a welcome member of our industry leading team of specialists.”
