For the first time, the Toronto Coin Expo Fall Sale will feature an auction partnership offering bidders an increased scope of numismatic material over two days. Alliance Coin & Banknote, based in Almonte, Ont., will conduct the sale’s first session on Sept. 30. Geoffrey Bell Auctions (GBA), based in Moncton, N.B., will handle the second session on Oct. 1. Both online auction sessions begin at 6 p.m. (ET), and pre-bidding opened via iCollector on Sept. 13. “This partnership offers more variety for the collector,” said Coin Expo owner and organizer Jared Stapleton, who also owns Metro Coin & Banknote in Toronto’s west end. “That’s why we did it.
