Expert Coins

I’m very fortunate to make a career out of my hobby.

Shaofan Zheng

Shaofan Zheng has been an avid coin collector since he was only ten years old. His fascination started with the coins he got for his humble allowance. He noticed coins were dated differently and wanted to collect all of them. He quickly outgrew this when he got some special coins, which fascinated him even more. Shaofan Zheng began collecting commemorative coins, mainly of Chinese origin. After finishing his financial studies in the Netherlands, he decided to become a professional dealer, which he did for more than four years, before becoming an expert at Catawiki.

Being an expert for the Asian coin auctions is no easy feat. The sheer variety and more than 5,000 years of Chinese history, makes it impossible to know every coin. Luckily, Shaofan Zheng has a lot of experience with identifying and appraising Asian coins. Even so, he keeps on learning every day, which he thoroughly enjoys. To make the best valuation, Shaofan Zheng scours catalogues, checks other auctions and consults his own collection for reference. He loves this kind of research and is pleased when it helps him make his auctions the best they can be.
