Hadrian Coins and Antiquities is the website of Julie and John Higham, based in the UK, now in the County of Derbyshire.
Our first career was as secondary school
teachers, Julie teaching French and Spanish, John teaching History.
After retiring from teaching in 1985 we opened an Antique Shop in Carlisle which proved very popular and successful.
Over the years we began to specialise, particularly in Antique Maps and in Roman Coins and Antiquities.
In 2013, our landlord began building works to extend his premises so we closed our shop to concentrate on our online business.
However we have retained two showcases which
are in Bookcase, the large Antiquarian Book Shop
on Castle Street in the City of Carlisle, where we have coins from £3 to £75 and some selected antiquities.
Although we have now moved to be nearer family in Derbyshire, we will continue to maintain these showcases.
