Laurion Publishing - Quality and Value in Numismatic Literature

Laurion Publishing: Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome to Laurion Publishing's Web Site for Quality Numismatic References at Affordable Prices!

Thank-you for taking some time to explore our web-site.

Because we are avid numismatists ourselves, we are dedicated to publishing great reference books at affordable prices. And because we are a small business, we are devoted to offering you the best in value and personal customer service! On this page we offer a FAQ that will hopefully help you get to know us a bit better.

Who Are You?

Laurion Publishing is a family-owned and operated business that we started in 1989, in response to the need for excellent numismatic books and literature at prices the average collector can afford ... without wailing and gnashing of the teeth. Then, as now, the most useful references on classical numismatics often sold at astronomical prices that would make even Augustus Caesar himself, sitting as he did upon the riches of Egypt, groan in dismay. Let's face it, most of us would rather invest our collecting budget in new coins, rather than over-priced books on those coins! With that very elementary fact in mind, we at Laurion Press launched a series of the highest quality reference books priced at about a third of what the significant competition commanded.

So ... who are we, then? David Van Meter is the principal creative force behind Laurion Publishing. Dave holds a Ph.D. in History from Boston University, where he wrote his dissertation on Carolingian and Capetian-era political eschatologies. (If you would like to view a copy of Dave's curriculum vitae, please click here).

Christine Van Meter is the business mind, and the voice of reason, that really makes Laurion Studio work. Chris earned her M.B.A. from Boston University. Chris gladly works with all of our valued customers to ensure that their needs are met, and their orders fulfilled to perfection.

Together, Dave and Chris also operate a comprehensive financial services frim, Van Meter & Van Meter, LLC, located in Little Falls, New York. We are also actively involved in serving our community; be sure to check out one of our recent activities, Christmas in Little Falls!
