Welcome to Marudhar Arts, founded in 1966 by Mr. Prem Ratan Maru, we are one of India's most trusted and venerated numismatic dealers and auctioneers. Located in Bangalore, in the heart of the IT capital of India, Marudhar Arts are the one and only company in South India to hold an Antique license, which speaks volumes about our professionalism, integrity, expertise and service.
Started as a hobby of collecting postage stamps, Mr Maru started his journey from Bikaner(Rajasthan), where he developed an extraordinary new concept of shaping this particular hobby of collection of Stamps and Coins as one of the Prime Investment Businesses in India which was inherently collector oriented. This avocation allows one to pursue their hobby and as well as create an alternative investment.
Following in the glorious footsteps of Mr. Prem Ratan Maru, his son, Mr. Rajender Maru gave extensions to this business with his business acuity and promising potential. To keep up with the growing demand of eCommerce our first e-Store portal www.maruphilaque.com was launched on 21st October 2007, and we are immensely proud to say that we are the first numismatic company in Asia to conduct a 100% e-Auction
Marudhar Arts was also solely responsible in organizing the very first National Numismatic Exhibition held on 6th to 9th May 2011. We are what we are today, only through determination, hard work, and by consistently producing results for our clients that met or have transcended their expectations. Throughout the numerous auctions we have held, our ability to get the job done on time, and as promised, has never faltered.
