the history of new zealand collector services



Tim Clyne

We are an established business with a retail outlet buying and selling militaria, coins, banknotes and antiques, and also sell on Ebay and TradeMe. We are always interested in buying collections; no collection is too big or too small. We update our lists regularly as and when we purchase stock.
We are Registered Licensed Second Hand Dealers and Pawn Brokers; and use standard British gradings on all items for sale.

Tim has been buying and selling Antiques and Miltaria, Medals & Coins for over 30 years. He has a strong passion for militaria and has been collecting medals and militaria since 10 years old. Tim has a wide knowledge on Military history, with an emphasis on New Zealand . 

NZCS was originally founded by Tom Taylor-Young in 1974.  Tom sadly passed away in 2013. 

Tim Clyne and Tom were both good friends and business associates and over the years worked closely together and sharing their passion for Medals & Coins.

Tim has taken over NZ Collector Services and combined his knowledge, and customer base along with Tom's to bring an interesting and exciting new mix to the website and business.

Medal and coin collecting is a wonderful hobby. I myself have been collecting for over 45 years. NZ Collector Services has been retailing numismatic items in New Zealand since 1974. Our inventory boasts a wide range of numismatic, philatelic and related items. It includes banknotes, postal history, picture postcards, military badges, and reference and stock books. We specialize in British/Commonwealth medals, both military and civilian. We also carry a wide range of accessories and the latest catalogues.
Tom was President of the Waikato Numismatic Society during the 1970's and a founding member of the NZ Numismatic Dealer's Association.
