Yasha Beresiner (2010)

A lawyer by training and a dealer in collectables by choice, Yasha was an early member of IBNS (he is Life Member No. 2), founder of the Latin American Paper Money Society, a past director of IBNS and editor of The IBNS Journal for several years in the early 1970s.

Yasha was born in Istanbul, Turkey, moved to Israel as a child, and was educated mainly in England and at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. In his early career he was a director of the London office of Paramount Coin Co. and then of Stanley Gibbons Limited, (where he worked with IBNS founder Colin Narbeth). Although his work with Stanley Gibbons was focused on maps and playing cards, he was part of the company that had a major influence on many of the early paper money collectors in Britain. Since 1982 he has run his own collectables business, InterCol London, which has offered a wide selection of numismatic books as well as banknotes. For years Yasha, who still lives in London, was a fixture at numismatic shows around the world.
