Chris Napolitano


Chris Napolitano began his coin collecting journey when, at the age of six, his father brought home a few hundred silver dollars from Las Vegas. Since that time, Chris has been fortunate to handle coins valued at a few dollars, to Classic American Rarities worth millions of dollars. Mr. Napolitano was president and owner of Summit Rare Coins, founder and owner of American Rare Coins, and past president of Stacks Bowers Galleries.

He is a life member of the American Numismatic Association, as well as a member of the Professional Numismatic Guild for almost 25 years.

Although the opportunity to buy and sell rarities will always make headlines, the reality is we buy and sell thousands of coins each year under $2500. Chris and his staff welcome the opportunity to assist you, whether you’re building a meaningful collection, or looking to add that one special coin to your collection, use our expertise, professionalism, and honesty to your advantage!
