There are basically two types of Coin Dealer UK based, the retailer and the wholesaler. The retailer actively seeks to acquire new minted products into his/her inventory, and frequently attended coin shows, local auctions, and actively conducts marketing offerings to purchase coins. Wholesalers on the other hand, purchase large quantities of pre-issued, nearly new coins from mints around the world, in bulk amounts and resell these to retailers, coin shops, or individual collectors. Wholesale dealers do not actively look for new minted products to add to their inventory. The major difference between a retailer and a wholesaler is that retailers buy in large volumes while wholesalers typically buy in small quantities.

Dealers who attend trade shows have the advantage of meeting up with other dealers and collectors in the industry.
