March 8, 2018 – Tim Wilkes, one of the world’s top experts in Islamic coinage, has joined the Coin Department at London-based auction house Dix Noonan Webb, the international specialists in coins, medals and jewellery. He will work for the company across all areas of numismatics.

Tim embarked on his career in numismatics having graduated from the University of St Andrews with a Masters degree in history. He joined London-based numismatic dealers and auctioneers, A. H. Baldwin & Sons Ltd, in 1998 and was appointed director in 2003. Over his ten-year career with the firm Tim was responsible for cataloguing a number of notable collections, including the W.C. Boyd Collection of English coins, the Michael Sarnefors Collection of Indian coins, and the Alistair Lilburn Collection of Crusader coins.
In 2008 Tim left Baldwin’s to become an independent dealer specialising in Islamic, Indian, and medieval coins. From 2014 to 2017 he was a partner in an online numismatic auction company before becoming an independent dealer and consultant once again. Tim is the author of Islamic Coins and Their Values.
“We are delighted to welcome Tim Wilkes whose expertise will reinforce the Coin Department at Dix Noonan Webb and help the company build for the future after a highly successful 2017,” said Christopher Webb, head of the Department.
Wilkes will work at DNW on a full-time basis which means that he’ll abandon his former work. “I will no longer be trading independently, and I will not be issuing any further fixed-price lists,” he announced in an e-mail to his clients.
“I am looking forward to this new stage in my career. I hope that I can continue to help you with your numismatic needs in future; if I can be of assistance please do not hesitate to contact me,” he continued. His new contact details are:
