Beantown Coins was established in 2011 as a way to share our unique inventory and the skill of our staff with the general public. We will continue to represent the high standards of generations of merchants of our trade, and we will soon become a major presence in rare coins, online.
CEO & Co-Founder
Our proprietor, David Leventhal, the son of a coin dealer, has himself been a full-time numismatist (coin dealer) since 1979. He has extensive experience in all categories of rare and collectible coins and brings his skill in grading to verifying our entire inventory.
David has been attending coin conventions for over two decades and calculates that he has logged hundreds of thousands of miles in the air. Known to dealers and collectors alike, throughout the numismatic industry, he is a specialist in United States and Canadian coinage.
Growing up in a rare coin family, David has been surrounded by a community of dealers, including his father and brothers. With a life dedicated to numismatics, it would be difficult to find someone with more thoroughly developed skills and experience.
Over the years, David has handled many millions of dollars in rare coins and is a very discerning buyer. He has assisted thousands of collectors in building their collections. David has contributed to The Guide Book of United States Coins for many years, and was a past contributor to Charlton’s Canadian Guide.
