David Lawrence Rare Coins (DLRC) is pleased to announce that world-renowned gold coin specialist Paul Nugget has joined the company as a new affiliate. Paul, a native
New Yorker, will remain in the Empire State, serving his existing clients as well as helping DLRC serve a wider base of customers.
Nugget's interest in coins started at eight years old and has propelled him to be the renowned gold coin specialist that he is today. He took a break during adolescence but
returned to the hobby after finishing school at Hunter College. After getting a job at a coin shop in July 1969, his knowledge and expertise grew and led to a career in
professional numismatics that has lasted almost 50 years. Although Nugget's numismatic fluency covers all U.S. coins, he is most well-known for his specialty in U.S. gold
Having worked with some of the world's largest gold importers, one of the largest coin wholesalers, as well as the auction house, Stack's-Bowers, Paul has seen it all and been
involved in trading over a billion dollars in U.S. gold coins. Having purchased and sold pieces of practically all classic U.S. gold coins ranging from 1795 to 1933, both federal
and pioneer, he is widely known amongst those in the coin industry as one of the foremost experts in his field. While he has a general disdain for Morgan Dollars, his knowledge
covers all realms of numismatics.
After venturing solo in the coin business in 2014 and following a brief period of retirement, Nugget decided to join forces with his former mentee and now close colleague, John
Brush, the President of DLRC. Brush stated, "I worked with Paul for three years at my first full-time place of employment, Spectrum Numismatics, and Paul took me under his wing in
my first week on the job. Not only did he give me a loupe that I still treasure, he was always there to offer support, knowledge, and advice." Brush continued, "Paul not only
became a mentor to me, he also became a friend, and we have kept in touch as such over the years. When Paul first told me that he wanted to get back into the business, I
immediately jumped on the opportunity and am thrilled to work with him again."
According to Paul, "David Lawrence was a unique opportunity for me to do something that was slightly different than my past professional stops. To work with a wider range of
collectors and to assist with the collection of D.L. Hansen was a special opportunity, and I am excited to work with John and the fantastic team at DLRC."
Paul is also a long-time member of the PNG (Professional Numismatists Guild) as well as many other numismatic organizations, and both Nugget, in all his endeavors, and DLRC as
a whole are known for their expertise in the hobby and have devoted themselves to the principles of the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG): honesty, integrity, and reliability,
and will continue to provide great value, high quality and unsurpassed customer service.
With Nugget's enthusiasm and over 50 years of experience, the DLRC will continue to make new advances in the Numismatic market as their offerings become more diverse and they
are able to offer a deeper and more thorough variety of U.S. gold. Nugget and DLRC are committed to being there for every customer and will offer the best they can provide.
