Slated for April 8-9, the sale could mark Colonial’s first in-person Premier Auction since fall 2019. Several months later, as the COVID-19 pandemic put a halt on in-person bidding, the Kitchener, Ont.-based firm pivoted to virtual auctions, four of which it hosted in 2020-21. Whether it’s held in person or online, this April will mark Colonial’s ninth Premier Auction since the flagship sale’s 2018 launch.
“We are proud to offer one of our best assortment of coins, banknotes and more to date,” said co-owner Kirk Parsons.
The coinage highlights will include “affordable coins for all collectors’ budgets,” high-grade coins in Mint-State condition and an “attractive” five-cent collection featuring the 1921 issue plus varieties, Parsons said.
Among the banknotes, bidders can expect rare chartered and Bank of Canada issues plus radar, specimen and replacement notes.
More details will be announced leading up to the sale.
