Numismatic pharmacists occur everywhere. Auckland, New Zealan has Julian A Brook, FRNSNZ, a member of the ANA, RNSNZ and the Numismatic Society of Auckland; and David Baird, a member of the NSA. Although both are at the latter ends of their careers as chemists, both are very active numismatists. And both are very good friends. Possibly there are other chemists (or pharmacists) in NZ who are numismatists (or coin collectors)!

Reading last week's issue of the E-Sylum and the references to numismatic pharmacists, I have a couple more to add to your list, in the event no one has yet brought them to your attention.
One is James A. Haxby, author of the Standard Catalog of United States Obsolete Bank Notes, (SCUSOBN) who is practicing the pharmacy trade in North Carolina.
Another is Walter D. Allan, who served as a .special consultant. on the SCUSOBN project, who practiced pharmacy at one time, but whom I believe is now retired. He lives in the Toronto area.
Both continue to be very active enthusiasts within the numismatic community. Jim continues to attend the Memphis Paper Money Show on a regular basis and is actively involved in data collection on U.S. obsoletes, while Walter is particularly active in the Canadian paper money collecting and research realms.
George Cuhaj also cited James Haxby as a pharmacist-numismatist. George also included
Jeff Swindling (okay, he graduates and gets the paperwork next year). He was an American Numismatic Association Outstanding Young Numismatist, and has done a bunch of other stuff since.
