Typically hosted in conjunction with the National Postage Stamp & Coin Show, the Premier Auction starts on Sept. 11, a day before the show – since cancelled due to COVID-19 – would have opened its doors in Mississauga.
“As we head into our second Premier Auction during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still very optimistic running with the online-only auction as the National Postage Stamp & Coin Show had to be cancelled,” said auctioneer Kirk Parsons, co-owner of the Kitchener, Ont.-based auction house.
“Results from our previous Premier Auction this past spring were very strong, and our monthly auctions since then have been performing extremely well. As with many dealers, we are all feeling the pressure of the absence of coin shows and limited business due to restrictions of public access over the past year. Acquiring choice material for the Premier Auction was a challenge; however, with almost 30 years in business, we were able to reach out to our contacts and succeeded in putting together almost 1,300 lots that will be split into two sessions.”
