Meet the Team


Andreas Afeldt

Founder and Managing Director

[email protected]

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 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.
