My name is Michael Creusy, my family has been in the ancient coin business for more than 40 years. Our entire merchandise was stolen on the way back from Paris
If you could help
us spread our story, please don't hesitate to contact us, or write about what happened to us.
Here is what happened :
It took place after the Bi-Annual Numismatic Exhibition in Paris
when a Numismat family were on route back home
and were robbed over 1 million euros of antique and modern coins.
It was one of the largest heists to have ever occured in the world of Numismatics
. This organized crime has definitely struck the world of Numismatic, antique dealers and jewelers.
The Creusy family is from Lyon
. For decades they have dedicated their lives to Numismatics
, a business passed on from father to son. The financial loss, though significant isn’t the worst that happened. The real misfortune is what will become of these unique and rare
coins. It is most likely that these unique pieces will be melted or resold, « thousands of years of history
lost » stated by 65 year old Joel Creusy who has dedicated his
life for 42 years to Numismatics
. In the collection
of coins, an original denarius
struck in Carthage
and a Charles IV Salut struck in gold in Paris
are just two examples of these many unique and rare
pieces that were stolen. Collectors and antiquity
dealers fight every year in auctions
to buy these pieces.
« Our profession has become one of the most risky in France
. The insurance companies no longer provide coverage while the coins are in transit, and as a result it leaves us out of work
. » exclaimed the manager of the antiquity
store, Michael Creusy the eldest 34 year old son who now finds himself in a situation of bankrupty after the incident.
The Creusy family offers a reward in the amount of 80,000 euros for anyone who could help
us by providing any information regarding our collection
. « All our collegues in Europe need to keep their eyes and ears open. For those in our profession, we must unite to fight against organized crime» adds Joel Creusy.
It is a situation that has placed people in this particular profession more frequently at risk. These criminals are armed and well-equiped with the latest GPS technology system and would go as far as to track down these merchants on the their way home
to steal all their merchandise.
After 40 years in the Numismatic profession the Creusy family must now start from ground zero. With the hope
of recovering their collection
they will offer free estimations for the value of the coins to those who contact them. « It is truly a rare
and unique collection
of coins that will take years to recover, we lost 25 years of work
» stated by Martine Creusy a Numismatic for 40 years.
