Stephen Album began as a full time dealer in numismatics in 1976. The firm grew in 1981 when Norman D. Nicol joined the firm as Stephen’s full time assistant. In 2001 Joseph Lang joined the firm and became a full partner in 2004. The firm has grown considerably since Michael Barry joined the firm in 2008, and in 2010 the company moved to a new much larger office in Santa Rosa, California. The addition of Paul Montz as partner in 2011 broadened the firm’s scope to include more machine struck coins of Europe and Latin America. The years since then have seen steady growth and record-setting prices in the firm’s thrice-yearly auctions.If you are interested in selling or consigning your collection to us, please contact either Steve or Joe at We can offer very competitive terms.
