David Michaels
World & Ancient Coins

Director, Ancient Coins
1-877-HERITAGE (437-4824) x1606

View Biography

David S. Michaels has been active in the field of classical numismatics for more than 24 years.  A specialist in Roman Imperial coinage, he has an extensive background in Greek, Byzantine, Dark Age, and Medieval coins as well. He is also well known as an author and lecturer. Michaels was born in Los Angeles, California in 1957. An early viewing of the movie “Cleopatra” when he was seven years old kindled a lifelong fascination with the ancient world.  While touring Italy in the mid 1980s, he purchased a battered Roman bronze coin, launching a new hobby and career path.  An interview with the renowned numismatist and author David R. Sear in 1988 convinced him that ancient coins could be more than a sideline. Two years later, he made numismatics his full time vocation. Michaels’ profile in the world of ancient coins rose steadily. In 1998, he became sales director of Classical Numismatic Group. Two years later, he joined Freeman & Sear, where he remained until 2010. Michaels has published several articles on aspects of ancient coinage and has given talks on the subject across the country.

In 2003 he joined Bonhams & Butterfield as Director of Fine & Rare Wines, becoming International Director in November of 2006 and taking on a revised role focused on making the Wine department there a global entity, paying particular attention to markets in the US and Hong Kong, where, in April of 2008, he held the first wine sale in more than 17 years. Over the course of the following year and a half Frank was in Hong Kong on a monthly basis, working not only on wine auction, but also spending a good deal of time working with the government in Hong Kong to develop appropriate policy around the business. His experience in the industry is across all phases of the business, from business development, to marketing, to sales, consignments and customer service, with a decidedly hands on approach. As early as 2000, Who What Where magazine published a feature story spotlighting Frank, his rise in the world of fine wines and his success orchestrating auctions. It said, in part: "Martell has rapidly established himself as a superstar in the world of wine... his future seems extremely bright." He has since been featured on CBS News, MSNBC, CNN, and CNBC's "Squawk Box" as an expert in the field and was cast in a primary role in John Cleese's documentary, "Wine for the confused."
