"History In The Palm Of Your Hand"
Tim Medhurst has formed a passion for coins, antiquities and antiques from a young age. At nine years old his grandmother showed him a Victorian Crown coin she kept in a little music box, from then on he was hooked! He has developed a fascination and interest which has sculpted a career path to where he is now, absorbed in doing what he loves every day.
He has worked for two leading auction houses for almost ten years. In that time he developed two successful coin departments from scratch. His opinion and experience within the Antique Industry is well received and valued. In 2013 he had the honour of being awarded "Antiques Young Gun" of the year. More recently he has been involved in vetting major Antique Fairs as well as being a panellist at the prestigious Art Business Conference 2017.
Tim is also a regular and recognisable face on the well known BBC's Antiques Road Trip and Celebrity Antiques Road Trip. Along with TV and Radio work he occasionally contributes to magazines and articles.
What really excites and grips Tim is the fascinating history and stories connected to the coins, antiquities and antiques he is fortunate enough to handle every day.
"Coins are one of the closest objects linked to social history, something in all people's pockets, in all periods of time. Imagine the stories they hold and the hands they have passed through centuries ago. It stirs imagination, romance and the connection with the past that is all brought to life through these wonderful pieces of history in the palm of your hand."
