The Week in Shows (Jan. 7-13)

Show season is back in full swing with two major events on the docket this week.

First up is the 46th annual New York International Numismatic Convention (NYINC), which will be held from Jan. 11-14.

Among the highlights of the show will be the NYINC Auction hosted by Stack’s Bowers Galleries, which will offer a 1921 50 cents—widely known as the “King of Canadian Coins”—as Lot 20065 of the sale’s third session. Described as “excessively rare” in any grade, this example has a grade of Specimen-62 from the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). It’s the sole example at this designation (with only three examples certified finer) and has an opening bid of $27,000 USD and a pre-sale estimate of $45,000 USD-$60,000 USD.


Later this week, on Jan. 12-14, the 2018 Unipex Coin and Stamp Show will be held at Montecassino Hotel on 3710 Chesswood Dr. in North York, Ont. The 19th annual show will be open on Friday from 11 a.m.-6 p.m.; on Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; and on Sunday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Admission and parking are free.
