Stack’s Bowers Galleries recently opened its new flagship gallery at 470 Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, the company announced in an Oct. 20 press release. Located just down the block from their historic West 57th Street storefront, this new gallery at 470 Park Avenue will serve as an East Coast numismatic destination for a new generation of collectors.
With modern, spacious, and secure facilities, this new gallery will offer the firm’s entire range of services covering all manner of numismatics, appraisals, gold and silver bullion and retail sales, and auction expertise. Collectors will be able to browse an extensive selection of coins and paper money available for direct purchase, as well as view upcoming auction highlights that will be on display throughout the gallery. The location also features meeting spaces for private consultations and will host public lot viewing for the firm’s auction sales, beginning with their November 2020 Showcase Auction. Located at street-level along one of New York’s most iconic avenues, the new space at 470 Park between 57th and 58th streets is now open and inviting all collectors. Appointments are recommended, though walk-in consultations will be accommodated pursuant to local COVID-19 guidelines.
Established in 1933 by brothers Joseph and Morton Stack, Stack’s Rare Coins first opened for business in New York City at 690 Sixth Avenue near the Flatiron Building. Stack’s moved uptown in 1939 to 32 West 46th Street and in 1953 relocated to their historic 123 West 57th Street location, where the firm would operate for the next 67 years.
Morton’s son Harvey G. Stack joined the staff full time in 1947 and continues to guide the firm to this day, working alongside his own son, Lawrence R. Stack. Stack’s Rare Coins merged with American Numismatic Rarities in 2006, and then with Bowers and Merena in 2011. The firm’s recent acquisition of Carter Numismatics in the summer of 2020 continues this trend.
