Meet the AC&C Team

Richie Self
President, Senior Numismatist.

After receiving a silver dollar in his Christmas stocking at age 5, Richie developed a strong interest in collecting US coins. At age 15 Richie sold part of his collection and purchased his first car. After a brief stint in the refining industry, Richie began working as a professional numismatist and has continued to do so for the last 35 years. Richie is a life member of the American Numismatic Association as well as several State organizations.

Derek Vinson
Director of Bullion Sales

Growing up in a family of coin collectors, Derek began his first US type set at age 10. After graduating college, Derek began working in the family-owned coin business. With 20 plus years' experience, Derek stays on the cutting edge of the bullion product market. When not in the office Derek can be found attending southern state coin shows.

James Desabaye
Historian & Numismatist

Collecting coins from an early age, James has since changed his focus to items of historical interest, principally in the form of letters and documents. His prime objective is to place these items into their historical context. A contributor to several reference books, James is constantly striving to improve his knowledge and expertise. James has worked for American Coins in excess of 20 years. When not working, James enjoys reading and watching classic movies.

Daniel Ramseur
Showroom Sales Specialist

When Daniel was 10 years old, his parents asked him what he wanted for Christmas. Imagine the look on his parents face when he asked for the Walter Breen Complete Encyclopedia of US and Colonial Coins. Daniel has not only been a student of US coins, but has also acquired a great deal of interest and knowledge about US currency. When weather permits, Daniel enjoys riding his motorcycle.
