October 12 – October 25, 2021

While this fall’s Toronto Coin Expo is cancelled, Alliance Coin & Banknote and Geoffrey Bell Auctions will host the show’s auction on Sept. 30-Oct. 1. The first session’s highlights include a 1996 ‘beaded toonie,’ one of only four examples certified by Professional Coin Grading Service, with an estimate of $6,000-$8,000.

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.

No one is going away; we’re just offering more for the collector.” Continue reading →
