On October 30, 2008, the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) and the PNG-member coin dealer, Kevin Lipton, announced a $10,000 reward to anyone with information that will lead to the recovery of the rare coins and paper money that were recently stolen from Kevin Lipton’s offices on Olympic Boulevard in Beverly Hills.

Stolen Coins

At the break-in on Sunday, October 19, 2008, more than a quarter-million dollars worth of numismatics were stolen. For the moment, the police have no information on how many burglars were involved in the robbery. Among the stolen and easy identifiable items are very old and rare American dollar bills, gold and silver coins and Canadian silver coins, as well as French Francs. Some of these stolen numismatic products are over a century old. A complete list of the items stolen can be obtained by the Beverly Hills Police Department or from the Professional Numismatists Guild.

“Anyone with information that can help solve this crime is urged to contact Detective Max Subin of the Beverly Hills Police Department at (310) 285-2158, or call the PNG at (760) 728-1300,” said PNG Executive Director Robert Brueggeman.

PNG is a non-profit organization founded in 1953 with its base in Fallbrook, California. The organization is composed of many of the top rare coin and paper money dealers in the United States and seven other countries. A member of PNG must hold on to a strict code of ethics when buying and selling numismatics products.
