The firm of Schulman had its origins in the jewelry and horological business of David Schulman of Amersfoort. Jacob Schulman began offering coins about 1880, and conducted sales in both Amersfoort and Amsterdam up to his death in 1914, whereupon Jacques Schulman took up the reins. The business continued in his name until 1989, when separate companies formed under Robert and Laurens. Another member of the family, Hans M. F. Schulman, moved to New York, where he held numerous sales between 1940 and 1975, often in conjunction with major US firms.
