Greater Milwaukee Coin was founded in 1987 in Milwaukee, WI by Russ Konig, who has been in the coin business for over 50 years. A few years later, the store was moved to Brookfield, a suburb of Milwaukee. In January of 1999, our second store was opened in Waukesha, WI by Russ' son Ken Konig. Both stores have a large selection of coins and a great group of customers.
We are members of a number of national coin organizations, including: The American Numismatic Association, Professional Numismatic Guild, Better Business Bureau, Central States Numismatic Society, Numismatists of Wisconsin, South Shore Coin Club, Milwaukee Numismatic Society, Waukesha Coin Club, PCGS, NGC, etc.
Russ started collecting coins as a small child, and one of his first jobs was at Polzer's coin store in Milwaukee starting in 1960. During the 1970's and early 80's, he had a thriving coin business attending shows, and supplying hobby stores with coins to sell. Then in 1987, Russ and a couple other partners started Greater Milwaukee Coin.
Ken also started collecting at a young age, and would go with Russ to hobby stores, and supply some with baseball cards to sell. During his college years, Ken spent a lot of time at the Milwaukee coin store. After college, he spent seven years in the insurance industry, helping out at the store or coin shows on weekends. Since January 1999, Ken has been running the second store in Waukesha and handling most of the internet related business.
We attend a number of rare coin shows and conventions each year around the country, especially in the Midwest. Check out our rare coin shows and conventions calendar to see the upcoming events we'll be attending.
