    What’s everyone’s plan for their hobby next year? Planning to attend any major shows, make any major acquisitions, etc.?


    The immediate forecast for 2020 is strong. The collector market is looking for the best of the best, and when it comes up, it sells very quickly. The low end market is active with discounted Mint product going out the door in the secondary market, most of the Gold and Platinum coins are realizing about melt or a little better if it comes with COA and box. What is continuing to happen is strong auction sales of little seen material. There will be a large amount of world coin coming to market in the near future and the response from the various auction platforms such as Icollector and Swappy, bodes well for the future. Wish everyone the best of the Holidays and see on the Bourse soon.

    Looking forward to attending many of the coin shows within an hour or so drive from my home mainly for the camaraderie, dealer support and club promotion.
    Slowly starting to downsize and plan on spending more time organizing and cataloging my collection in 2020. Like most collectors/hoarders you look at some of the items and wonder ‘why did I buy this?’, and ‘does this still have meaning or fit into my collection?’. Bottom line for many is to collect what you like and enjoy the hobby as much as you can!

    As of March 11 everything is on hold due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Lets hope this doesn’t stretch out too long.


    Since being stuck at home I have been concentrating looking for notes to fill my albums. I am surprised by how many dealers do not have their inventory available on line. I am currently looking for a nice example of a 1937 $100, not professionally graded, in VF to XF condition. Been looking at icollector auction site, seen one but missed the auction.


    Staying home, researching anything I can get my hands on (or find on the net) concerning Canadian Pre-Confederation tokens. Expanding my collection of 1842 PC-2B tokens, 1843 & 1854 New Brunswick tokens and some 1837 tokens, & complaining about the useless leadership in our US federal government.
    By the way does having a membership to Canadian Coin News enhance my chances of moving to Canada & applying for citizenship after the next US election? LOL I hear Cape Breton is quite nice….
    Will attend local US shows if the situation is safe.
    My mother is a Canadian citizen. This is what started my Canadian coin collection addiction years ago when she gave me a couple of old tokens.
    Regards & stay safe.


    Hey, you never know! Your CCN membership might bode well with border security—make sure you bring a copy when you plan to hop the border.

    Until then, stay safe, Mick.


    No going out for now 🙁
