National Postage Stamp & Coin Show continues today

Today is the final day of Trajan Media’s two-day National Postage Stamp and Coin Show, and there’s no shortage of excitement on the bourse with about 50 dealers, a children’s table and an afternoon full of presentations slated to take place.

Held at the Hilton Mississauga, the two-day show is hosted by Trajan Media, publisher of Canadian Stamp News and Canadian Coin News. A full list of dealers can be found here. The show opens today at 10 a.m. and closes at 4 p.m. Admission is free.

At 11 a.m., Daniel Roettele, senior national sales manager at Lighthouse Canada, will lead a seminar on setting up and using optical aids such as microscopes, ultra-violet lights, watermark detectors and magnifiers. Roettele began his career with Lighthouse at the mother firm in Germany, Leuchtturm. He accepted a transfer to Canada to aid the sales, product development and marketing force.

FREE PARKING

Parking at the Hilton is free for all show attendees. Do not pay the parking meters as the hotel will not issue refunds. Instead, register your licence plate at the admission desk.

NEXT YEAR’S AUCTION

There’s no auction at the Fall Show; however, Colonial Acres, of Kitchener, Ont., will be presenting a coin and stamp auction at the Spring Show on April 7-8, 2018.
