Meet the Team


Andreas Afeldt

Founder and Managing Director

Andreas has been buying and selling coins for most of his life. When he was five his grandfather gave him a bucket of silver bullion coins to trade, an early lesson in entrepreneurship. Today, the same principles applied in his early collecting remain at the heart of The Coin Cabinet approach — a focus on rarity, historical appeal and quality. Launched in 2014, the idea for The Coin Cabinet came from a frustration with the high cost of market access for coin traders, particularly the complex fees charged by traditional auction houses and dealers. He also wants to demystify trading with an accessible auction platform and transparent pricing. A passion for numismatics complements his fascination with history, and the conviction that remarkable events of the past illuminate current and future trends. Ultimately he’s a believer in gold — as a real asset hedge against currency fluctuations, volatility and political instability — a lesson implicit in his grandfather’s gift, an artefact from a time when coins had intrinsic value.

Tom Pelc

Investment Consultant

Tom is a habitual collector. During his three-decade career in investment banking and hedge funds he has led a parallel life as a qualified silversmith and antiques dealer in London’s Portobello Road, Camden Passage and Grays. Bringing together his financial expertise with a deep knowledge of coins and the world of collecting, he’s a bridge between The Coin Cabinet’s diversified and portfolio investors, and classical numismatists. Equally comfortable discussing investment strategies and macroeconomics with a fund manager as a themed series of rare date sovereigns, his investment narrative is built on a view that gold remains undervalued as a real asset and store of wealth that offers diversification in uncertain times. It might be a well-established narrative, but a long view of history continues to inform his decision-making in today’s world of fiat money and cryptocurrencies — and he’s looking for the the opportunities presented by future possibilities, not just short-term probabilities.

Claire Moryan

Operations Manager

Studying Ancient Greek numismatics as part of a Classical Archaeology degree at the University of Oxford, a silver coin caught Claire’s attention. The Athenian Owl tetradrachm, struck with the patron goddess of Athens and owl of Athena. Demonstrating the trading, cultural and military might of the Greek city-state, tetradrachms were ubiquitous throughout the Mediterranean and Asia Minor for centuries. She sees a historical thread running through Athenian currency to the British and Commonwealth coins offered by The Coin Cabinet today — in particular the 19th- and early 20th-century British sovereigns that were minted and exchanged throughout the empire, much like the ‘owls’ two millennia before. Following another master’s degree at University College London, Claire joined Christie’s client strategy team, and now works closely with clients at The Coin Cabinet fielding auction enquiries and discussing consignments. She enjoys seeing clients’ excitement build in the lead-up to auctions, and using her classical languages to read the legends on the coins being catalogued.

Megumi began her career in equity derivatives at Lehman Brothers in Tokyo and Hong Kong. Following this, she established and later sold a real estate business in Hong Kong and co-authored a book of short stories in Bahrain, the culmination of a lifelong passion for writing. Megumi joined The Coin Cabinet after arriving in London in 2020, where she focuses on developing bilingual content, building relationships and driving new business — including the growing community of Japanese collectors and investors. She enjoys seeing clients achieve financial gains while experiencing the pleasure of owning objects of real historical value, and relishes the opportunity to draw out the rich stories behind the coins as they pass to new owners and open new chapters in their history.
