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.

Live Auction: Sunday, June 10th, 2018

Selected items online for preview: Tuesday, May 29th, 2018

Live Preview In-store: Saturday, June 2nd & Sunday, June 3rd, 2018

 

As always, my family, staff and I warmly thank you for your continued patronage, and I look forward to your participation in our impending public sale!

Sincerely,

Sean Isaacs
