What Do We Buy?

Are you considering selling your valuables? Please give us a call! Very little preparation is required because we conduct all purchases with the client present. However, some customers prefer to sort, separate, and document their items, which is completely understandable, but not necessary.


We have a private purchase room, which ensures security and comfort. We always make fair and transparent offers. We are happy to answer questions and provide explanations of how the values are calculated, which allows the customer to make the best decision for themselves. Some of the items we most commonly purchase include:


  • Canadian coins and banknotes

  • Pre-confederation tokens

  • Worldwide coins and banknotes, including U.S. and ancients

  • Bullion - refined gold and silver

  • Scrap gold and silver, including broken or damaged pieces

  • Silver service items, like flatware, trays, and tea sets

  • Estate jewellery

  • Military items


If you have a sizeable collection you are looking to sell, please arrange an appointment in advance so we may make a fair and accurate offer.

Things to Know Before Selling Your Coins

Must I clean my old coin before selling it?

No. Coin cleaning is a job best left to the experts. In fact, cleaning a potentially collectible coin of great value can jeopardize its appearance and lessen its value when appraised. Scrubbing the coin or dipping it in chemical cleaners could dampen its shine or leave scratches and marks. A skilled appraiser can easily pick up on such flaws.
