Currently limited to a maximum of four customers in our gallery at any given time, we also remain available for appraisals and purchasing and Tuesdays and Wednesdays (Glebe location only on this day), however please note that these services are only available by pre-booked appointment.

We thank you for your understand as we continue to adapt our business in order to comply with the our current public health environment.
As always, appointments can be booked by telephone, email, or by reaching out to me directly on my cell phone.
Please be patient, as it may take a number of days to keep up with our current call volume.

Having decided to remain open by Appointment Only, at least for the remainder of the summer, we’re very happy to point our customers to our largest rolling ebay coin and collectibles auction. The latest installment, with our largest ever inventory of Weird & Wonderful items is now live.
Please visit us on ebay for a wonderful selection of coins, medals, and other collectibles. You can see a selection of highlighted items in this post.
We are also delighted to report that we are finally cleaning up the online inventory database on our website, and in the coming week will be posting 150 fresh new ICCS Canadian coins for your pleasure!
After much deliberation and consultation, I have decided to temporarily shutter our retail store in Almonte. Quite frankly, we are a non-essential business with a large and fluid clientele, many of whom are in a vulnerable age bracket, and keeping our store open during these very uncertain coming days and weeks poses an unnecessary risk to both our customers and our staff. Even more so, when I consider that I have two asthmatics and an essential health-care worker in my own household.
Announcing our Famous Year-end Boxing Sale! I am delighted to announce the return of this annual event.
In addition to offering the deepest store-wide discounts in the coin business:
- We always have fresh new inventory available for our sale, not just the old stuff!
- We’re opening the entire weekend for our customers, and look forward to your joining us!
Best wishes for the holidays, and for a healthy and prosperous 2020!
Sean Isaacs, family and staff

This past June 28, I had the pleasure of presenting the very first Isaacs Medal for History to Zachary Tuffin.
The pure Silver medal, together with a small bursary, will be presented each year to a graduating student of Almonte & District High School who has chosen to pursue post-secondary studies in History or a related field.
Zachary is now attending the Museum Studies program at Ottawa’s Algonquin College, and we wish him success in his chosen field!
A five-year tradition comes to an end this Saturday October 19th, with the final Almonte Zombie Walk for Hunger taking place at 2:00 pm.
Benefiting the Soi Dog Foundation, Country Cat Sanctuary, as well as our local Food Bank, I am delighted to once again serve as grand parade martial for the event.
With live musical entertainment during registration, and many prizes at the end for participants, we invite everyone to join us in making this final 2-kilometer stumble around the downtown core the best Zombie Walk ever! (Honestly, there’s no greater pleasure than freaking out Mill Street diners as they sit engrossed in conversation over their salads and hot-turkey plates!)
Hats off to Heather Gadbois for having made this a fun and material contribution to our local cultural landscape.

I am pleased to report that we are making excellent progress in refreshing our online inventory database at alliancecoin.com.
Please browse through our current offering of more than 300 newly-posted Canadian and World items, all specially-priced for our internet audience. Many will sell at our upcoming show in Hamilton, so visit today for the best selection!
It is somewhat a “catch 22”, in that our inventory experiences heavy adjustments through attendance at our numerous trade-shows, and the key to keeping our listings “fresh” is to take advantage of those pockets of time between shows to post new material. We shall do our very best and invite you to visit often.
