MY BUZZ

Chard was established in Blackpool over 50 years ago and has carved itself a strong and secure niche in the industry as the largest coin and bullion dealer in the North of England with a client base which stretches to all corners of the globe. The company carries a wide range of bullion coins and bars from mints from all around the globe as well as a huge collection of coins from ancient to modern. This ‘Northern powerhouse’ business has grown over the last decade and a recent £1 million expansion plan has resulted in a high-tech purpose built showroom and office premises. Chard are constantly evolving and are developing new and innovative business strategies to sustain the company and gain a larger market share. The company motto is Inform, Educate & Inspire and their websites are crammed full of numismatic facts and figures. Chard regularly appear on Radio Lancashire discussing coins and bullion. For the last 2 years we have been voted the UK Bullion Dealer of the Year - in 2017 we're going for the hat-trick!

MY BIO

My passion for coins started when I was earning some pocket money in my grandmother's amusement arcade on the promenade in Blackpool. My 'job' was to sort out coins and coin collectors used to ask me for particular dated coins - I soon realised I could make more than pocket money from doing this.

MY BUSINESS TIPS

I have a passion for coins and bullion. I like all my employees to enjoy their work and have a passion for the business too. It helps give a better customer experience; if the staff are happy, the customers are happy and they come back again and again.
