HATAY - Anatolia News Agency
Süner brothers are sending these coins to Tunisia, the U.S., Canada and Germany. AA photoAn entrepreneur who decided to make model copies of archeological artifacts is now selling these art works abroad. Aziz Süner said he had a great interest in the ancient coins that are preserved in archaeological museums, which led him to produce copies of these coins.
He began making these model coins with his brothers and, as time passed, they improved the models. At first they gave these models to the souvenirs shops in Hatay and around Turkey. “I started when I was 18 and I have developed my talent a lot. My brother quit his job and we decided to make coin models only.”
After his coins aroused interest in the souvenir shops, they decided to begin exporting them. Currently, the brothers are sending these coins to Tunisia, the U.S., Canada and Germany.
Süner and his brother are making coins, sculptures and other archeological artifacts such as jewelry and accessories. The export business has become their main business as time has passed.
Apart from the tourists, coin collectors are also interested in the models. Süner said they also made exclusive models of coins upon request and order.
