All Nations marks milestone auction

After more than 26 years of weekly sales, All Nations Stamp & Coin will mark its next major milestone in mid-March.

The Vancouver-based firm, led by owner and auctioneer Brian Grant Duff, will host its 1,400th weekly auction on March 11. Beginning at 1:30 p.m. (PT), about 200 lots will offer a range of Canadian and worldwide coins, banknotes and other numismatic plus philatelic items at the All Nations storefront in west Vancouver.

Topping the Canadian highlights is a 1948 silver dollar, the series’ rarest issue with only 18,780 examples struck. In Extremely Fine-40 from International Coin Certification Service, it’s estimated at $1,000.

Other highlights include Canadian banknotes spanning from Second World War-era war savings certificates to Canada’s final $1,000 bill, last issued in 2000.

Among the worldwide material, a Scottish Charles I 60-shilling silver coin carries an estimate of $3,000 while an enamelled 1909 U.S. Indian Head $10 gold coin – from Vancouver founder Sam Brighouse’s estate – is expected to bring $1,500.
