Brian Roan

Brian Roan -- Shipping & Receiving Specialist

Brian was born in Illinois but grew up in the Dallas, Texas area where he graduated from High School in Richardson, just outside of Dallas.  After spending some time in Virginia and Oklahoma, Brian finally decided to call Tennessee home in 1990, and came to work for Nashville Coin Gallery in May, 2022.  When he’s not performing shipping and receiving duties for Nashville Coin Gallery, Brian is an avid amateur photographer and enjoys taking pictures of birds, flowers, and other wildlife, and also enjoys traveling with his wife.

Donovan Miller -- Jack of all Trades

Donovan grew up in the Indianapolis, Indiana area and later moved to Nashville, TN upon graduation from college. He spent most of his career in the Healthcare Finance/IT industry before joining the team at Nashville Coin Gallery in late 2023. Donovan has always been an avid silver bullion collector, so after frequenting Nashville Coin Gallery as a customer for about ten years, joining our team seemed like the perfect thing to do! At Nashville Coin Gallery, Donovan's job description is pretty much "whatever needs to be done". He's enjoying learning all aspects of the business, and we couldn't be happier to have him on board! During his leisure time, he can be found in nature either hiking or biking but also enjoys traveling.

Sam Mizell -- Photography & Videography

Sam joined the Nashville Coin Gallery team in November, 2020 as a Shipping and Receiving Specialist, and quickly established himself as yet another “Rock Star”  Nashville Coin Gallery employee.  For a year and a half, Sam basically “owned” the responsibility for all things related to shipping and receiving, from assembling boxes to packing and securing the contents, from ensuring every box is adequately insured to generating shipping labels, from ordering shipping supplies to videotaping all shipping and receiving activities — you name it. If it had anything to do with shipping or receiving, Sam did it.

While he was here, Sam also became quite proficient at doing our coin photography and website video production, further cementing his “rock star” status!  

Sadly for us, in early May of 2022, Sam took another full-time job in the music business — his first love — but he still works for us part-time now, doing some of our coin photography and videography.  

In his free time, Sam enjoys writing and performing music.
