Meet Our People.




Mike Rubin was bitten by the “collecting bug” early in life. At around 12 he saw an ad in one of his comic books that extolled the virtues of stamp collecting and offered a selection of world stamps, an album and hinges. Thus began a 40-year hobby.  Mike built a world class collection of classic US and British Commonwealth stamps and also specialized in aerophilately and first day covers. He was a member of APS, BPS and RPS and submitted several thousand items for certification. One day, surrounded by several hundred albums, dozens of unreviewed auction lots and many items awaiting incorporation into one of his specialties he decided it was time to go cold turkey.  It took numerous international auctions to dispose of his collections. Mike Rubin’s vision for MACge is and always be inspired by his love for coins.

Right out of Full Sail University, Brittany Fassitt began developing the MACGE website. With little to know experience in coins, Brittany was knowledgeable enough to know that the coin industry lacked a touch of modern. She quickly understood that most collectors are mostly ‘traditional’ and she has always wanted to honor traditions using modern advances.  Her goal was to ensure that our customers were getting the most convenient experience possible-“accessing price guides quickly”. Brittany specializes in modern design. She focused on bringing new perspectives to our most traditional currency using graphic and urban color schemes. With remarkable feedback to our site in just a few months, some could say that she has found a niche to what our industry is missing. In doing so, Brittany soon found her own love for coins and has been collecting Park and State Quarters.
