About

David Bozsik

I am graduating with my B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Nevada, Reno this spring, May of 2012.  Although currently a full-time student, I use my time away from the classroom immersing myself in Numismatics, the study and collection of coins, paper currency and medals.  I am not an expert, but have more than ten years of experience coin collecting, managing inventory, wholesale/ retail price differentiating and much more. I have had countless experiences with matters such as: terms of sale negotiation, public relations matters, approaches with dealers/ collectors and more here.  I have a passion and love for what I do and believe that by sharing my experiences followers might be enabled to reflect and better manage commonly encountered topics of numismatic interest that are infrequently spoken about.

This blog will talk about coin topics that aim to give support to all levels of coin enthusiasts in order for you to find your place in the numismatic community.  Experiences shared will be actual events. Articles segmented will be about current and recent numismatic news. Historically significant numismatic events and discoveries will occasionally highlight a blog.  My hope is to have an environment filled with informative writing that may act as a tool used during future consideration of your numismatic decisions.  I will never give nor am I qualified to give financial advice.  Thank you for not asking.

I have been interested in coins since the age of twelve.  My numismatic foci lie in vintage gold coins and all U.S. coins dated before 1965.  I grew up in Smith Valley, Nevada, just fifty miles south of the very famous United States Mint at Carson City.  I can remember as a fifth grader, my gifted and talented class took a field trip to the nowadays mint and museum in Carson City.  I was fascinated, then, with the collection of Carson City coins on display inside the facility vault.  Since then, Carson City minted gold coins and Carson City minor coinage have held a sweet spot in my heart.

For more than ten years I have worked with the family coin and collectable business, Bodie Creek Coins and Collectables, bodiecreekcoins.com, a PCGS and NGC Authorized Dealer.  I served and volunteered as the auction head responsible for organizing one of the two Young Numismatist Benefit Auctions held at the 2009 ANA Summer Seminar.  I really enjoy taking time to meet with professional numismatists, intermediate hobbyists and beginning coin collectors.  I have found that discussing unfamiliar foci of numismatics can be just as important as the familiar ones, so please never hesitate to share with me a story or item that I have never mentioned.

I have attended four ANA Summer Seminars (2006-2009), the premier annual gathering in numismatic education.  I have taken classes in counterfeit detection, advanced grading and problem coins, and the modern minting process.

I am a member of the American Numismatic Association (#3120799), Florida United Numismatists, and The Downtown Coin Club of Carson City.
