Auctioning since nov.1967, Cayón is a global benchmark for Spanish and Latin American colonial coins, medals and currency. World and ancient coins (Greek, Roman…) are also available.
Member of the major global numismatic bodies (IAPN, PNG, VDDM), we publish the best-seller flagship catalogue for Spanish coins Las Monedas Españolas. We run monthly live auctions online and specials at the Ritz in Madrid-Spain.

Clemente Cayón (1972) studied Business and was the first to take over. Juan Cayón (1975) is an attorney (ICAM) and has a master’s degree in corporate tax (IE Business School). He was a guest professor for the numismatics program at the UNED (2005-12) and is a court-appointed expert in numismatists and tax law (APEPJIC).
