Eric Eigner has been involved in coins for over 25 years. While he has a keen interest for all things coin-related, he has always been particularly passionate about gold sovereigns and Australian silver and copper coins.
After a few years in investment banking, Eric set up Drake Sterling Numismatics in 2006 and became one of the first coin dealers in Australia to sell coins exclusively online. As all business was conducted through the internet, he focussed on providing high-quality images and detailed descriptions of each of the coins for sale, and, over the years, redesigned the website to simplify the online buying experience.
In 2007, Drake Sterling became a member of ANDA and SCDAA, Australia’s leading coin, banknote, and stamp associations. The following year, the business was invited into the exclusive PCGS-authorised dealer network.
