“We are following all Health Canada, Public Health Ontario and Toronto Public Health guidelines and implementing all recommendations to protect the health of the collectors, dealers, attendees, staff and community members,” reads the joint statement.

“Numismatic events all over the world have been cancelled during these unprecedented times. We feel for everyone that has been affected by this situation – our heart goes out to you. We are determined to do everything to ensure our hobby remains as robust as ever.”


While these shows are cancelled, Geoffrey Bell Auctions will still host a one-night live auction on Aug. 8.
