B.C. dealer joins Stack’s as director

After a record year for realizations in world coin and currency auctions, the U.S.-based Stack’s Bowers Galleries has expanded with a new office on Canada’s west coast.

Leading this venue in Vancouver, B.C., is buyer and consignment director Adem Karisik, the owner of Karisik Auctions and a collector since his early teen years.

A member of the North Shore Numismatic Society since 2018, he began dealing at the club’s Coins, Stamps & Collectibles Show three years earlier. After graduating from high school in 2019, Karisik became a full-time dealer and founded his namesake firm. His expertise spans world banknotes and coins, but he specializes in Canadian and Asian numismatics. He plans to be “a regular presence at major Canadian and U.S. coin shows” in 2023, according to a statement from Stack’s.

“His expertise in paper money, along with his experience as a coin dealer, will enhance our already exceptional customer service, providing additional support with appraising, buying and collecting consignments,” said Stack’s world paper money director Aris Maragoudakis.

Stack’s President Brian Kendrella added: “Adem’s knowledge across multiple areas of numismatics makes him a welcome member of our industry-leading team of specialists.”
