THE SPRING SALE
Dear Friends, Welcome to the Spring Sale! According to our last sale (The Winter Sale), prices have improved much for interested buyers (sellers, of course, are quite happy). Over 2/3 of the entire auction sold and brought great results. Tokens sold out and in some cases set some record prices. Coin collectors are generally a pretty financially conservative group. The underlying collector base is strong. Competition at recent auctions has been fierce. It is as if the economic turmoil does not exist as soon as the doors to the auction room closes. Auction prices have never been stronger. We have been fortunate to receive in consignment some great material directly from collectors but we can not think of a single example where the collectors were motivated by economic necessity. It continues to be difficult to buy collections or better individual coins, tokens and banknotes. The key factor in the market?s health is that our market is collector based and that there is not enough good material available to satisfy collector interests. The Canadian Numismatic Company is proud to be offering this important auction. This is a quality auction which includes over 1050 lots of mainly Canadian numismatic material. Please join us during the Spring season. If you will be participating from home, we encourage you to use our exclusive internet bidding or Live bidding platforms. You can also participate by mail/fax, phone, email and internet live.
