About company
Coin and antiques trade in the 4th generation

In 1953, Gerhard Hirsch founded a coin trading company under his own name. That happened after Otto Helbing Nachf., which was a family-owned company before World War 2, had to be closed down for political reasons. Both companies were trading and auctioning.
The current owner, Dr. Francisca Bernheimer, who is a niece of Gerhard Hirsch, took over the company after his death in 1982. Dr. Francisca Bernheimer, who studied art history, archaeology, and numismatics, saw new vistas opening up for herself. Growing up in a family involved in art her interest for art and culture was already sparked in her childhood. Her father, Dr. Ludwig Bernheimer, and her grandfather,  Consul Otto Bernheimer, managed Haus Bernheimer, an art involved institution founded in 1864.
In addition to trading coins the arts of the ancient world were added to the company's portfolio.
One of the key businesses of Gerhard Hirsch Nachfolger are auctions.
Already in 1888, ten years after founding the company, Otto Helbing who was a great granduncle of Dr. Bernheimer's held his first auction. Over the past 125 years, numerous important collections have been auctioned here.
