Regular daily admission is $6 (although children 16-and-under are free).

Beginning Sept. 29, Geoffrey Bell Auctions will also host a two-day, 948-lot sale in conjunction with the Fall 2016 Coin Expo. Lot viewing runs from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. each day with bidding beginning at 6 p.m.. The auction is free to attend for the general public. To view the auction catalogue online, click here.

As one of the oldest numismatic associations in Western Canada, the Manitoba Coin Club was founded in 1954 and became a charter member of the Canadian Numismatic Association (now the Royal Canadian Numismatic Association, or RCNA) in 1955. The club has sponsored the RCNA Convention in 1966, 1982 and 2013.
