Introduction to Numisbing
Numisbing is a leading numismatics business in the Middle East Region with a market share close to 75%. Numisbing is seeking admission to Nasdaq First North to raise the Company’s public profile. Currently, there are few quoted companies specialising in the niche business of trading and investing in rare and antique coins or other rare collectibles. Investment interest in such coins has increased over recent years, and stock market investors are seeking more diverse investment portfolios.

Development and growth
Since its inception in 2012, Numisbing has grown into a leading Numismatics business in the Middle East Region with a market share close to 75% (as per Numisbing Management).

- In 2014, Numisbing introduced a new product to the market called “Dates on Notes” with the end goal of tapping into a broader category of stakeholders than just the collectors.
- In 2015, Numisbing ventured into providing its own grading services on numismatic assets and this led to the formation of separate legal entity – Professional Grading Authentication (PGA) in India and later in 2017 a subsidiary in Dubai.
- In 2016, Numismatics Stationary called “CONOST” brand was introduced as a new product to cater to the needs of numismatic stakeholders.
