Antiques Road Trip is back on our screens this February 2020, with more antiques experts ready to haggle and bag a bargain.
Each series follows the same premise, as two experts head out across the country, scouring for the best finds they can then take to auction. Whoever nabs the best bargain takes the win!
Although they all have expertise in different areas, there’s one who has a speciality in a unique area: coins.
So, who is Antiques Road Trip’s coin expert Tim Medhurt? Let’s get to know him a bit better…
Meet Antiques Road Trip’s Tim
Tim Medhurst is originally from Dorset, England.
His love for antiques started at a young age. Speaking about where this passion came from, Tim stated that when he was 9 his grandmother showed him a Victorian Crown coin she kept in a little music box. From there on out, Tim was hooked on coins.
Tim worked for two major auction houses, before setting up his own business. He worked for Reeman Dansie Auctioneers from 2008 to 2014 and then Duke’s Auctioneers from 2014 to 2018, according to his LinkedIn.
