Steve Klimek is a true ‘Coin Guy’ and a pioneer of coins on television. He has been a mainstay in the industry for almost 4 decades! A collector himself and a numismatist at heart, Steve’s first collectible coins came from his route as a Paper Boy in the 60s. He would search the change he was given and placed the Silver Dimes into his Whitman albums and cans. He eventually sold some of his Mercury Dime collection and used the proceeds to buy himself his first car!
Since that day, he has had an uncanny knack for numismatics and has followed his passion to become the #1 coin specialist on TV today.
Steve was one of the very first Television coin experts, originally airing back in 1991. He holds the distinction of being one of the few who introduced coins to a TV audience – and he is still doing it today. When it comes to the coins, he has an almost unrivaled knowledge of value, the history surrounding that coin, and most importantly: why you need to have it in your collection.
When he’s not on air, he loves to watch football and support his two hometown teams: The Green Bay Packers and Wisconsin Badgers. A Green Bay, Wisconsin Native Steve bleeds Green and Gold and certainly loves to “Jump Around” every Saturday with Bucky Badger. You’ll typically find him spending time with his loving wife, two sons, grandson, and Ryder the family dog; he loves nothing more than watching WWII documentaries with his furry friend when he can find some down time. If you are lucky enough to run into him at one of the many coin shows he frequents across the country, you will find a man who simply loves three things: People, history, and coins.
