Coins are one of the few forms of art that were already here 2,400 years ago.
Ugo Leca is a serious collector. As a kid, he collected everything: pencils, erasers, ropes, Coca-Cola memorabilia, you name it. When an uncle introduced him to coins, they soon became his favourite collectable item. During his studies, Ugo set up and maintained a coin display at an archaeological gallery. This gave him the opportunity to work in New York for Stack’s, one of the biggest coin companies in the world. He spent two years working with millions of coins, which made him a highly recognised expert. He became a sought after consultant, working across the world to appraise collections, build catalogues and assist with the biggest auctions. Ugo loved his work, but constantly travelling became tiring. That’s when he was introduced to Catawiki. Ugo seized the opportunity to continue doing the work he loves. All from his comfortable home in southern France. As an expert, Ugo’s been appraising coins and making auctions, mostly for the French and gold coin auctions. He’s a firm believer of quality over quantity. That’s why he puts in the effort to create auctions which mirror the breadth of French history and to please his bidders by placing his lots in proper numismatic order.
