The second wave of our ebay sale arrives!

I hope this brief update finds everyone and their families safe and secure, as this insidious disease moves from being a distant threat to a very local one that now penetrates the sanctuary of many if not all of our own communities, big or small, rural or urban. Our faith, perseverance, and steadfast adherence to the very sage public health advice will carry us through to brighter days ahead.

Although now approaching one full month since the temporary closure of our retail store here in Almonte, it has been a very busy period for Alliance Coin & Banknote. Thanks to the wonderful support of our mail-order customers, more than 100 items from our recent Spring Catalogue have now found their way into the homes of fellow house-bound collectors. Hundreds of diverse items remain available from this price-list, so please feel free to browse its pages.

I am also very pleased to report that we have just closed out our single most successful ebay “Weird & Wonderful” campaign of the past few years, with more than 200 lots heading out to quite literally every corner of this continent. As with most industries these days, times are tough for the collectibles small business community, and I would like to humbly and sincerely thank our customers for your support over the past month.

I am also delighted to announce tonight’s launch of “wave two” in our ebay campaign, with new lots being added each and every day. Highlighted here is a small teaser selection of the truly remarkable items we have coming up for sale in the coming days – keep watch via the ebay link, and consider adding something new and unique to your collection!

Once again, I wish everyone well in the coming weeks.

Stay safe, and keep the faith.

Sincerely,
Sean Isaacs

Auction 2018 an enjoyable success!

On June 10th, 2018 we held our second live public coin auction, once again from the floor of Almonte’s venerable Old Town Hall.

With 52 registered bidders and an overall sell rate of approximately 90%, this offering of more than 600 diverse lots attracted a good crowd, and by all accounts, an enjoyable time was had by all.

Auction Catalogue

Highlights of our sale included a lovely “Queen Mary” Five Dollar note of 1924, which sold for $6,000 in spirited bidding, while the nod for “most active lot” went to a very scarce 1939 Royal Visit presentation medal to a member of the Queen’s R.C.M.P. escort, which also included an excessively rare embossed luncheon napkin from the visit. With a pre-sale estimate of $150, this historically significant pair of items found a new home at $450.

Our sincere thanks go out to all who participated in our sale, as well as to David Giles for once again serving as our auctioneer, and to Foil Media for their fine work in designing our online auction template and print-catalogue production interface.

We look forward to hosting our third sale in 2019, and will strive to have our printed catalogues available in much better timing.
