Trevor Wilkin (2016)

Trevor Wilkin from Australia has been described as “one of the most interesting, most knowledgeable and most trustworthy banknote dealers in the world.” His banknote expertise and historical perspective are refreshing and always spot on accurate.

In addition to his distinct old world charm and always pleasant demeanor, Trevor remains at the cutting edge of banknote technology, with a particularly keen interest in polymer. Everyone seems to know Trevor which attests to the legion of collectors, beginners to advanced, who have benefitted from his friendship and freely given knowledge over the years.

Despite a grueling travel and banknote show schedule which he handles with good humor, Trevor always takes time to support the IBNS at home and abroad. At conventions he will always be found to have made up a display and is prepared to talk. For one who travels so extensively as a professional banknote dealer, Trevor could easily justify not volunteering for IBNS activities yet to the contrary he is always the first to volunteer. He has long been a significant part of the glue that holds banknote collecting and IBNS activities together not only in Australia but across most regions of Pacific Oceania and Southeast Asia. The IBNS has no greater advocate and world ambassador than Trevor Wilkin.
