About Bruce Walker

Bruce Walker joined Stack’s Bowers Galleries, a firm engaged in the sale and auction of rare coins and currency, in early 2015 as a World Numismatist and Cataloger.  After collecting world gold coins by Friedberg catalog number since his mid-20s, his numismatic interests blossomed subsequent to purchasing a used copy of the Standard Catalog of World Coins a few years later.  After a number of years pursuing numismatics as an avocation while employed in the information technology field, Bruce began a gradual transformation toward a career as a professional numismatist.  At first buying and selling on eBay, his involvement with fellow hobbyists led him to become an officer of the Johnson County Numismatic Society (Kansas) before joining a local numismatic auction house to assist with the liquidation of the Dr. Richard D. Bode estate in 2013.  As his passion and expertise with coins grew, Bruce made the decision to leave IBM after 25 years to pursue what many consider to be a dream job working with rare coins on a daily basis​.  A frequent contributor within the numismatic press, with nearly a dozen published Op-Ed pieces in Numismatic News, Bruce continues to pursue numismatics both as a hobbyist as well as a professional.
