Toronto Coin Expo Spring Sale 2017

Auction Details

We are proud and excited to conduct our auction in conjunction with the 2017 Spring Toronto Coin Expo. This sale features Part I 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 and the now famous Bank of Canada serial #5 set are both pieces of this collection garnering a frenzy.
The fur trade industry and the Hudson’s Bay Company have been a most important part of Canada’s heritage. In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, a major piece of Canada’s history is being offered with a large collection of Hudson’s Bay tokens, card tokens, scrip and medals. Other selections from numerous consignors round out another outstanding auction including a nice Edmonton quarter collection and the second-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 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.
