Jim Fisher, Show Host
Minneapolis native Jim Fisher recalls his fascination with numismatics beginning as a young boy sorting thru silver coins. Fast forward over 50-years later and what began as a simple hobby has transformed into a lifelong career. As the newest member of The Coin Vault family, Jim is able to share his many talents and vast expertise, including 52 years of collecting knowledge and 17 years experience hosting live television.
Jim attended Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia and is a graduate Wichita State in Kansas – class of 1980.
Jim is a self-described sports enthusiast having played college-level football, baseball (and was even offered a contract to play professionally after working as a batboy for the Minnesota Twins) and remains an avid golfer to this day. He was also once an active surfer and horseback rider, but noted that it's been “a few hundred years” since he's been on a board or a horse.
Jim is a lover of classic rock and names Fleetwood Mac, Bob Singer, Grateful Dead and Boz Scaggs as a few of his all time favorites. He also loves bragging on his son James (age 21) who currently plays football for North Dakota State University (Division I National Champions 2014).
When asked what his favorite thing was about working for The Coin Vault, Jim replied “This is going to sound corny … but I so enjoy the people, the environment and my co-workers, but most of all, I just enjoy talking about coins.”
