Press release from Morton & Eden
Jeremy Cheek, the Queen’s numismatist, on Feb. 12 announced he is to
retire from his position as a specialist valuer at London-based
international coins and medals auctioneers Morton & Eden.
However, despite having reached his 65th birthday last year, Jeremy
will still be seen on the auction circuit, making himself available to
collectors for consultation, valuations, viewing and bidding at
auctions on their behalf and providing expert cataloguing for
auctioneers when required.
“Experience counts for a lot. It is a precious asset that people
value highly and coin people never stop, so I suppose I should call
this a semi-retirement,” Cheek said.
Cheek joined the staff of Morton & Eden in 2008 at a time when
they were associatd with Sotheby’s. His numismatic career started with
the well known firm of B.A. Seaby Ltd. and he subsequently spent 12
years with coin dealers and auctioneers Spink & Son Ltd., who also
advised Christie’s on coin valuations for many years. Spink held
auctions in Christie’s London galleries and jointly with Christie’s overseas.
He will continue in his position as Honorary Numismatic Advisor to
the Royal Collection, which he helps curate at Windsor Castle; he is
currently writing a catalogue of the coins and medals in the Royal Collection.
Cheek can be contacted via his website or by email.
