Where the Dugup Artefacts are Going Now


In the context of the "Prospero" sale (see above), the Financial Times quotes Ian Goldbart, Baldwin’s managing director, as indicating that
coin collecting has become an increasingly popular pastime in recent years, particularly for wealthy clients from the emerging markets. “This has always been a multimillion dollar business in the United States and Europe, however we now have a portfolio of eminent buyers who come from Russia, China and the Middle East,” Mr Goldbart said.
