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!
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.
