The History Behind KJC and Jaggards

As KJC Coins Australia approaches 25 years in business, we share our untold legacy in the bullion and numismatic industry.

If there’s anything the Jaggard name is synonymous with in Australia, it’s gold. In fact, our name is the oldest and most reputable name when it comes to bullion and numismatic merchants in Australia. When you purchase with KJC Coins Australia, you are dealing with Australia’s only bullion and numismatic dealer that still has a Jaggard running the business.

A Family Legacy and Heritage

In 1963, Carol and Robert Jaggard founded the numismatic and bullion company 'Jaggards'. Kurt Jaggard was born into the trade, growing up around his parent’s business and eventually became director and half owner of 'Jaggards' with his father Robert. The Jaggard family also held a seat on the futures exchange in Sydney.

Reluctantly, Robert and Carol sold 'Jaggards' due to separation of family and Kurt started KJC Coins Australia in 1995 with his wife Nathalie. It’s important to note that while the bullion company 'Jaggards' still bears the family name, the Jaggard family are no longer associated with it.
