Coins & Numismatics
Coins & Numismatics

The study, collection and trade of coins lies at the heart of our traditional company. Although our main focus is in ancient numismatics, our service encompasses coins and medals of all major collection areas, from ancient to modern times. Apart from buying and selling coins, we advise our clients how best to develop their collections, and offer information on all matters of numismatics and monetary history.

Ancient Gems & Seals
Ancient Gems & Seals

The Kölner Münzkabinett is one of the few German dealers with proven expertise in the field of ancient glyptic art. We deal in gems and seal stones from all periods of history. Due to our excellent connections and huge network of gem collectors and traders within Europe, we are able to ensure first class provenances.


The Kölner Münzkabinett deals in ancient artefacts from all periods of history. We offer prehistoric artefacts, as well as ancient Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan, and Roman objects such as jewellery, pottery, glassware, terracotta, stone and bronze objects. We carefully check the authenticity and provenance of all objects offered, giving assurance that we deal only in archaeological objects from legal sources with impeccable provenances from German and European collections.


The Kölner Münzkabinett is your reliable partner for coins in Cologne. We assess the value of coins and medals of all major collection areas from ancient through medieval up to modern times, taking into account type, rarity and degree of preservation. If you wish, you will (for a small fee) receive written expert reports on collections or individual pieces.

With over 40 years of expertise in the field of numismatics and the experience in trading coins, we offer a professional and qualified service. Whether you want to establish or expand a coin collection, or require professional advice on a numismatic subject, you can have confidence in us. For more specific questions, we can rely not only on our numismatic library, but also on a network of external specialists. To ensure that the right person to advise you is on site, we kindly ask you to arrange an appointment by phone.

Purchase and sale

The buying and selling of coins is our daily business. We deal in coins and medals from all major collection areas, from ancient to modern times. We also buy gold at current prices. If you want to buy or sell coins, we look forward to your visit to our store in the Neven-DuMont-Str. 15 in the centre of Cologne. Our shop is open every day from Tuesday to Saturday.


The Kölner Münzkabinett has been holding auctions since 1968. We are the only auction house for coins and medals in Cologne. Our floor auctions are held twice a year in Cologne. Additionally we conduct two e-auctions per year. A preview of the auction goods is possible during opening times at our store in the Neven-DuMont-Str. 15 in Cologne.

The Kölner Münzkabinett is the only auctionhouse for coins in Cologne

The Kölner Münzkabinett was founded in 1968 by Tyll Kroha and Dr. Günther Brockmann, and had always the reputation, amongst collectors, of being more a numismatic specialist store than coin dealer. In 2014 Tyll Kroha handed the Kölner Münzkabinett to his successor Kai Scheuermann, who, with Christoph Heinen, continues to run it, following the death of Kroha in 2015. The wealth of experience in trading coins, the numismatic expertise of the staff, in addition to the individual support and advice in a family atmosphere are highly appreciated by our numerous customers. We are fortunate to be able to rely, not only on a numismatic library, but also on the expert advice of a network of external specialists.

The Kölner Münzkabinett regularly holds two floor and two e-auctions a year, and is the last operating auction house in Cologne, auctioning coins and medals, as well as primitive money, scales and weights. In addition, our range includes ancient gems and jewellery, antiquities, modern seals and numismatic literature. Up to 1500 lots are offered per auction. The high quality and richly illustrated auction catalogues will be sent to more than 1000 collectors and dealers around the world. For our ever-growing international customer base the auctions are accessible through the internet platforms ‘Sixbid’ and ‘Numisbids’.

In addition to auctioning, the Kölner Münzkabinett constantly buys and sells coins – both in store and on the internet. Our main focus is in ancient numismatics (Celtic, Greek, Roman and Byzantine coins), coins from the Middle Ages, and special coins and medals of the modern era. Furthermore, we also deal in ancient artefacts such as Roman glassware, oil lamps, vessels, terracottas, gems and jewellery, as well as scales and weights.
But it is not only the interesting range of coins and antiquities, that makes the Kölner Münzkabinett so special for collectors. We are always available for an expert discussion or a small chat, and will help you to assess the value of your collectibles.

We look forward to your visit!
