Family Owned and Operated
Hi. I'm Joe Sermarini, the owner of Forum Ancient Coins. In the photo above is my wife, Rose, and our daughters, Allison (behind), Amanda (left), and Amber (right).
I retired as a Commander in the U.S. Navy Supply Corps on 1 November 2007. My last assignment was Commander, Defense Distribution Depot Cherry Point, North Carolina, which explains our current location.
Forum Ancient Coins started as my hobby. As an ancient coin collector, I wanted more coins than I could afford. While still on active duty, I thought that by selling a few coins, I could make a little money to buy more coins. I soon discovered that my pleasure comes more from researching coins than from permanently owning them. Today my collection and my inventory are the same, so my collection changes continuously.
Rose is an angel and a fantastic cook. We met and married in Singapore. Allison is now a High School teacher in Greensboro, North Carolina. Amanda is studying art at Appalachian State University in Boon, North Caralonia. Amber is attending the University of North Carolia at Wilmington.
Rose takes the photographs, makes the daily trip to the post office, and helps in more ways than I can list here.
The photo above is old but I keep it here because I like it. To see our latest photos and learn what the Sermarini's are up to now, visit my Facebook page.
