Toronto Coin Expo Spring Sale 2015

Auction Details

We are once again pleased to conduct our auction in conjunction with the 2015 Spring Toronto Coin Expo. We are excited to be featuring The Geoffrey Bell collection of pre-Confederation tokens and coins. This sale is also complimented with the first installment of countermark tokens from The Richard Cooper Collection. Selections from numerous other consigners round out another outstanding auction. 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.

This auction will take place
at the Toronto Reference Library,
789 Yonge Street, Toronto, Ontario
on May 28th & 29th, 2015.


We are always planning ahead, and are currently preparing for our 2015 Fall Expo Sale, Oct 1st & 2nd, 2015. Whether you are a buyer or a seller, we are ready to help you with your collections and would love to discuss the opportunity to auction your collection, duplicates or selective prized possessions.

We hope you enjoy exploring the catalogue and wish you good luck with your bidding.
