Canada’s premier coin news magazine
Canadian Coin News is Canada’s premier source of information about coins, notes and medals. Although we cover the entire world of numismatics, the majority of our readers are Canadian, and we concentrate on the unique circumstances surrounding collecting in our native land. Our editorial pages include information on new and old issues, as well as commentary, investment tips and Canada’s most up-to-date listings of Canadian coin and paper money prices.
The magazine was formed more than 40 years ago by Chet Krause, who built the largest hobby publishing company in the world out of Iola, Wisconsin.
Early on, Chet realized that in order to thrive, what was then called Canada Coin News had to be a Canadian operation. Although Chet stayed involved for a number of years, he sold the magazine to resident editor Cale Jarvis.
The publication changed hands several times, ending up with its present owners, Trajan Publishing, in 1989.
