Our Numismatic Philosophy
Thomas Numismatics is the fruit of years of research, analysis, studies, and numismatic expertise in France and abroad.
Thomas Luques, the founder, is himself a former collector of royal coins. He has since transferred his passion to the company values. Each collectible item for sale in our shop has been carefully selected by an expert eye.
Thomas Numismatics is also a human adventure. A story of encounters and exchanges between connoisseurs, driven by the same interest for history and science. Beyond a monetary investment, your purchase also plays a role in safeguarding the past and ensuring the transmission of heritage. These archaeological treasures are the footprints of bygone societies. They tell the story of civilisations and enclose well-kept secrets. Building a coin collection is also passing historical objects down from one generation to the next. A numismatist is a custodian, a guardian of memories, a conveyer of ancient and modern history.
Expertise and Authenticity
Dating and period contribute to a collectible object’s value, but its quality and condition are also of paramount importance.
Thanks to our expertise, Thomas Numismatics offers a range of coins with exceptional features. Our sales catalogue is made up of unique items, of a rare pedigree.
Guaranteed and prestigious origins
Our coins boast prestigious origins, and renowned traceability. Here are a few examples of some of our remarkable and high-end origins:
- historical treasures, such as the treasure of rue Mouffetard, the treasure of Vendée, etc.,
- famous value books. Some of our coins served as models for photographs in the “Droulers” and “Gadoury” reference books,
- prestigious sales, such as that of the famous art enthusiast Vinchon in 2002,
- collections once belonging to historical figures and famous numismatists, such as Georges Sobin, the Taittinger family, or King Farouk of Egypt.
