Rare Coin Wholesalers Names Laurel Kamper Marketing Director

Laurel Kamper has been appointed Marketing Director of Rare Coin Wholesalers (RCW) of Irvine, California.

“Laurel has excellent experience in successful advertising and marketing in a half dozen business fields as well as trade shows. She’ll be a tremendous help in our efforts to keep our company in the forefront of the numismatic community, and to expand the awareness and enjoyment of rare coins with new audiences outside the usual hobby universe,” said Steven L. Contursi, RCW President.

Contursi generated international headlines in May when he sold his unique 1794 specimen Flowing Hair silver dollar for a record $7.85 million.

A native of New Jersey, Kamper is a Magna Cum Laude graduate of the University of Alabama with a major in advertising and a minor in English.

“I’m very excited to be working with the RCW team. We’ll be looking at fresh advertising and marketing strategies to educate new customers about the benefits of rare coins because they can be a great asset to an individual or investor. Keep an eye on RCW for upcoming announcements and a ‘new look’ in our print materials and web site,” said Kamper.

Over the decades, Contursi and RCW team members have bought and sold a combined total of over a billion dollars in rare coins, and owned or participated in the purchase or sale of the most of the rarities listed in the book, “100 Greatest U.S. Coins.”

In recent years, the company has made national headlines with the purchase and exhibitions of what many believe is the first silver dollar struck by the United States Mint in 1794, the unique 1787 Brasher Doubloon with “EB” punch mark on the eagle’s breast and the famous King of Siam proof set.

Previously, Rare Coin Wholesalers was located in Dana Point, California, about 17 miles farther south in Orange County from its new offices.
