View Biography

Rich Adams is joining our Beverly Hills team from Utah,
where he has lived for the majority of his life. He developed a passion for
numismatics working as a jack-of-all-trades in a large coin shop – responsible
for wholesale, appraisals, buying, grading, pricing, of US, World, Currency,
Stamps, and an occasional diamond or pocket watch. For his own collection, Rich
has a particular interest in world crowns, world gold, and large coppers, all
having to do with colonialism and expansionism of the 19th Century
and early 20th.

 

Rich has recently returned to the professional numismatic
world after a hiatus where he completed his Master’s degree in Public
Administration. He has degrees in comparative religion, Spanish, and
Portuguese. When not studying coins, he is regularly involved in the performing
arts, having been a member of the Mormon Tabernacle choir and many musical
theatre productions.

 

Rich is thrilled to find a new home at Heritage!
