The ‘Back In-Person' Spring 2022 Toronto Coin Expo

Canada's premier coin and bank note show, the ‘Toronto Coin Expo', running from April 29-30, 2022, was back in-person this year, at the Toronto Reference Library Salon Venue, located in downtown Toronto.

The show featured 35+ internationally-renowned coin and banknote dealers, representing Canadian, United States, and World currencies, including Campbell's Collectables, run by Terry A. Campbell, numismatist and author, with over 56 years of collecting experience.

The event was also host to a live auction, held by Geoffrey Bell Auctions.

Among the plethora of magnificent pieces up for bid in Session II, was Lot 1320, a certified 2000P Twenty-Five Cent ‘Community' coin, graded MS-63 by ICCS, which sold for $10,200 CAD (plus applicable taxes).

The unusual issue is considered a modern Canadian rarity; having the capital letter ‘P' (representing a composition mark) on the obverse side of the coin, below the neckline of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and above the denomination of ‘25 CENTS'. The coins were produced utilizing pure nickel planchets; however, a number of the 25 cent pieces were accidentally stamped using the obverse die, designed for use with plated coins.

The Spring 2022 Toronto Coin Expo had a great turnout, and was a welcome opportunity to mix and mingle with numismatists, non-numismatists, and collectors alike, F2F (Face to Face), for the first time, in quite a while.
