Ousted American Numismatic Association leader Christopher Cipoletti has been named president of a new subsidiary of Rare Coin Wholesalers of Dana Point, Calif.
Cipoletti will head a new division for retail sales called Rare Coin Consultants of America. He will work out of Colorado Springs and attend financial services and investment trade shows, said Steven Contursi, president of Rare Coin Wholesalers.
“Chris Cipoletti is the ideal person to oversee Rare Coin Consultants of America. He’s knowledgeable about the numismatic marketplace; he’s a strategic, visionary thinker; entrepreneur and motivator,” Contursi said in announcing Cipoletti’s hiring.
Cipoletti was executive director of the Colorado Springs-based American Numismatic Association for nearly five years before being fired by the organization’s board last fall “with cause.” He also is a lawyer and served as the numismatic association’s legal counsel
