We have been busy steaming through our backlog of coins in preparation for our first major trade-show of the year, at month-end.
Before this new inventory gets snapped up in Hamilton, however, we wanted to give our local customers an advance preview.
Stop by the store this Saturday January 20, 2018 to view a sample selection of the many hundreds of new Canadian and World coins we’ll be bringing out over the coming weeks, from modern Canadian decimal issues to early pre-Victorian English coinage. The amalgamated product of dozens of collections we’ve purchased since last summer, we’re confident you’ll find something of interest!
This Sunday evening at midnight, we will be launching our latest batch of “Weird & Wonderful” auction items on eBay.
This initial session will be comprised entirely of modern European medals, most from the estate of the distinguished Canadian diplomat Claude Charland, former Ambassador to Guatemala, Mexico, Italy, Libya and (finally) France. Some of these pieces are quite remarkable in terms of theme and design – please take a look!
Further auction sessions will be launched throughout the next few weeks, promising our usual remarkable diversity and character – the hallmarks of our “Weird & Wonderful” philosophy!
