Until the end of 2015 I ran a successful IT consultancy, but then had to retire early due to ill-health. I received a modest inheritance following the death of a relative in 2017 and following an improvement in my state of health I found I had an opportunity of indulging my growing passion for collecting and selling historical coins. I have a life-long interest in British history and I was delighted to be able to start Patrimony Coins in 2019.
