Their rich history and huge variety make German coins the most enjoyable to collect.
German coins are amongst the most popular in the world. The great diversity, rich history and good condition make them some of the most enjoyable coins to collect. Catawiki therefore needs a real expert and connoisseur to take care of these auction lots. And Philipp Rott is the man! He has been surrounded by antique coins all his life. From a young age, he would visit clubs with his father where coins were compared and traded. It did not take long before collecting became his passion too. In addition to studying cultural history and archaeology at university, Philipp started his own trade in antique German and Russian coins. He has come across thousands of coins and has also started collecting medals.
The challenge for Philipp is to assess a wide range of coins based on photographs. His experience and good relationships with the sellers are his biggest assets here. He always consults with other experts to verify authenticity and assess the price. As an auctioneer, Philipp most likes to see old German gold coins, but he also enjoys including coins that are especially fun to collect in his auctions.
