profile_picMatthew W. Vickers – Owner

Trading his first securities online when he was nineteen, Matthew has been involved in finance personally and professionally for most of his adult life.  Matthew’s professional background includes Franklin Templeton Mutual Funds (dealer services/trades), Wells Fargo Bank (personal finance management), Tri Counties Bank (operations management/sales management), and Citizens Bank of Northern California (new product management/operations/branch management).  Matthew bought Rocklin Coin Shop in 2009.  His speciality at Rocklin Coin Shop is advising on physical gold and silver for personal investment.

When not physically at the shop, Matthew spends his time on product development, marketing, and general administrative duties.

In his off time, when not spending time with his family, Matthew suffers from what he refers to as “obsessive compulsive multi-hobbyism,” essentially meaning that there are just too many things to list that he tries in his off time.




Ariana K. Vickers – Owner

Having loved coins for their beauty and history since she was a child, Ariana began collecting at an early age.  Her other great love of biology and veterinary sciences led to her professional careers in veterinary clinics and hospital registration.  Her career has provided her with outstanding customer service skills, patience, and careful attention to detail.  Ariana’s specialty at Rocklin Coin Shop is numismatic (collectible) coins and currency.

When not physically at the shop, Ariana handles financial administration, payroll, and numismatic organization.

In her off time, she enjoys flute, pets, target practice, and of course, spending time with her husband and three children.






Chad D. Vickers – Sales Manager

Starting his career at Rocklin Coin Shop in late 2010, Chad comes from a history of service management, which lent itself well to his position as the Sales Manager.  Chad is the face of Rocklin Coin Shop, being the most likely person that you will do business with if you come in.  Chad’s specialty at Rocklin Coin Shop is making sure that customers buy the products best suited for their needs based on their individual goals.  

When not physically at the shop, Chad is typically the liaison between Rocklin Coin Shop and the community, serving as our representative on the Rocklin Chamber of Commerce.

In his off time, Chad enjoys spending time with his family, video games, drums, target practice, and the Renaissance Fair.






denise_businessDenise D. Taylor – Executive Assistant

Denise grew up in sunny Southern California for most of her life.  After raising her two children (before being a stay-at-home mom was frowned upon), she spent her professional life working in medical records, managing a medical transcription office, and the bulk of her time with State Compensation Insurance Fund.  In 2007, she and her husband, Phil, moved to Chiloquin Oregon, where they remained for 4 years, until a position opened up at Rocklin Coin Shop in early 2011, allowing Denise the opportunity to move closer to her grandchildren.  At Rocklin Coin Shop, Denise’s specialty is customer service and order fulfillment.
