Revised CPMS Registry to be released tomorrow, Saturday at Coin Expo

The third edition of the Canadian Paper Money Society Note Registry will be released at Toronto Coin Expo when it opens its doors tomorrow at 10 a.m.

The book will sell for $45 ($35 for CPMS members) if purchased this April 22-23 at Coin Expo, which is held twice annually at the Toronto Reference Library on 789 Yonge St. Shipping within Canada will cost an additional $15.

The revised Canadian Paper Money Society Note Registry is about 100 pages longer than the second edition, which was released three years ago. Listings have been updated and many new note registers, including some previously unpublished registers, have been added (although most of the newly added registers have been published in the CPMS Journal in the past three years). The Registry is divided into six sections: Provincial, Dominion, Bank of Canada, Chartered Bank, Merchant Scrip, and Municipal Scrip.

According to a press release issued by Coin Expo organizer Jared Stapleton, the updated registry will “inform collectors on the rarity of a broad range of Canadian paper money,” adding “some vendors may attempt to mislead potential buyers by representing the number of notes graded by a particular grading company as the total in existence. Notes known to have been stolen have been clearly identified in the Registry. The book will pay for itself many times over if it helps to avoid the purchase of a stolen note.”
