At the end of January, Heritage Auctions announced that Dustin Johnston has been promoted to Vice President.
Now in his 20th year with the firm, Johnston has been active in just about every aspect of the business.
Most recently, as Director of the Heritage Auctions Currency department, he oversaw all aspects of the department, including consignment acquisitions, purchasing, catalogs, and inventory management.
“Dustin is an accomplished expert who is universally admired and respected throughout the currency collecting community,” said Jim Halperin, Heritage Auctions Co-Chairman.
“His knowledge and expertise are the results of exceptional talent and energy combined with his long-term, sharply focused involvement in all aspects of collecting, including roles in prominent currency collecting professional organizations.”
Prior to his arrival at Heritage Auctions in 1998, Johnston was a very active numismatist. He picked up collecting at the age of 10, and by high school, he was attending national conventions and actively buying and selling coins and currency.
He also promoted the hobby, won literary and exhibiting awards from the American Numismatic Association (ANA), and served as an exhibit judge and Numismatic Theater Speaker at the ANA’s National Money Shows.
A decorated currency collecting expert, Johnston is a member of the ANA as well as the Professional Numismatists Guild, the International Bank Note Society, the Society of Paper Money Collectors, and the Professional Currency Dealers Association, for which he is currently serving a term as vice president.
