Toronto Coin Expo Fall Sale 2017

Auction Details

We are proud and excited to conduct our auction in conjunction with the 2017 Fall Toronto Coin Expo. This sale features Part II of the Covered Bridge Collection, with fresh rarities that are coming out of storage for the first time in numerous years. Trophy notes from many chartered banks, complimented by a choice French series $50, 1935 will garner a frenzy of bidding.
The fur trade industry and the Hudson’s Bay Company have been a most important part of Canada’s history. In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, a major piece of Canada’s history is being offered with a large collection Hudson’s Bay and other fur related tokens. Other selections from numerous consignors round out another outstanding auction including a nice West Coast vari- ety collection, a rarely offered selection of named Governor General medals and finally the second-to-last offering of the Richard Cooper Collection. Much anticipation surrounds these collections as individuals are planning on attending the sale from all over North America in hopes of an opportunity in obtaining a piece of this historic event. We feel privileged to be given the opportunity to be entrusted with such treasures and thank our contributors who have placed their faith in us.



Buyer’s Premiums will be added on all items as per the Terms & Conditions of the sale. Invoices will be emailed out after The Toronto Coin Expo.
