Wildlife Museum Collection to be offered next month at Torex

The Canadian Numismatic Company will present the Wildlife Museum Collection of Canadian Coins and Banknotes, which consists of an “array of high-grade early Bank of Canada banknotes and Canadian coins,” at the June Torex Auction in Toronto next month.

According to auctioneers, this “comprehensive collection is highlighted by a complete and possibly one of the finest quality silver and nickel five-cent collections ever assembled.”

“Each item being handpicked over several years for its extraordinary appeal and/or quality. The five-cent collection alone should and will rank amongst the very best five-cent collections ever offered, such as the Norweb Collection, the Canadiana Collection, the Belzberg Collection and the Victoria North Collection to name a few.”

The June Torex Sale will be offered across three sessions on June 22, 23 and 25.
