Need a Club Contact for Advice?

We are very fortunate to have such a wide range of experienced collectors as members in our club.

We welcome questions on any form of numismatics (i.e. banknotes, coins, trade currency, tokens, medallion, encased, Canadian Tire, wooden currency, medals, challenge coins, numismatic jewellery, shinplasters, etc.).

You have questions? We have answers!

During each of our meetings, we have a segment called Share 'n Learn where members and guests have an opportunity to ask questions.

You can also get in touch with one of our expert members, or a member of our Executive Committee listed on our Contact Us page.
