In this area you will find information about the Künker Auction House, about the purchase and sale of coins and gold, and about things it is important to know in order to make a proper and competent evaluation of a coin on the basis of numismatics.

The Fritz Rudolf Künker Company has, since 1971, stood for quality and competence in numismatics. As a European market leader in the coin trade, we maintain contacts of many years’ standing, not only to organizations and scientific institutions, but above all, to you -- our customers. The basis for this work is our passion for coin collecting and for history. We want to make this passion tangible for you, which is why we are happy to share our experience in the coin trade with you.

Because we ourselves are collectors and love the coin trade, it is a priority for us to treat our customers, suppliers of coins and gold, and partners as we would wish to be treated: with fairness, dependability, and availability at all times for consultation on numismatic issues and questions.
