'ATS Bullion was established when Christie's sold Spink (Estd.1666), the oldest coin dealer in the world, in 2002.'
Before we became the independent company of ATS Bullion we were the bullion department for Spink & Sons. Spink were formed in 1666 by John Spink and were based just off of Lombard Street in London, until the Great Fire of London in 1666 forced Spink to move to another location until their premises was rebuilt.
In 2002, Spink & Sons were acquired through Christies by an investment capital firm based in Singapore. During the acquisition, it was decided that Spink were to close their bullion department.
It is at this point that some of the bullion department's clients heard of the employees' plight and decided to buy out the department from Spink to create a independent bullion company.
The new company of ATS Bullion, which stands for Alfred Terry Spink, was set up to take over the bullion and modern coin business previously run by Spink. For the first four years of trading, being part of Spink's ex-bullion department, we continued to work within Spinkâ€™s premises on Southampton Row. However, following the subsequent success and expansion of our company in 2006, we relocated to the prestigious Savoy Court building (right next to the famous hotel and just off the Strand) where we are still trading today.
