All 620 lots for our rapidly approaching Live Auction are now available on our website, many with pictures (which we continue to add), and we are inviting advance bids.

Please note: print catalogues will only be available on the day of the Auction.

We have a rough plan of 10am to 3pm, but in reality we may end quite a bit earlier. If you are serious about one or more items, we really recommend arriving earlier. The lunch break at 12 is a great time to stroll around the town and grab a bite to eat at one of the many fine eateries.

2018 Annual Live Coin Auction

I am delighted to report that we continue to steam ahead with preparations for our second annual Alliance Coin & Banknote live public auction, to be held in the Almonte Old Town Hall on Sunday June 10th.

The sale will begin at 10:00 am, with a one-hour break for lunch at noon, before continuing at 1:00 pm.

2018 Live Coin Auction posterThis will be a very diverse sale of 500+ lots, representing virtually every area of the coin, banknote, medal and token fields, as well as some truly unusual items in our “Artifacts,  Collectibles & Bulk Lots” category. With estimates ranging from $10 into the thousands, there will be something offered for every collecting level and budget.

Please note that due to the unfortunate delayed receipt of some important Canadian material, printed sale catalogues will not be available until the actual weekend of the auction. Fortunately, however, complete listings will be available for both viewing and advance bidding on our website by mid-week prior to the auction, once we are able to complete the catalogue and assign final lot numbers.  We do sincerely apologize for the resulting very tight timing, but remain confident you will find it worth the wait.

Beginning this Tuesday the 29th, we are delighted to begin featuring a preview of selected auction highlights on our website, which will continue to expand as we move towards final completion of sale preparations.

Additionally, we invite our local customers to visit us for a preliminary viewing of available lots, this coming weekend.  Alliance Coin & Banknote will be open both Saturday and Sunday, from 10:00 to 5:00, for your viewing pleasure.
