I am back from Chicago and back to regular days and hours in the store. I am taking a bit of a break from my regular long hours, so am not working on mail order after hours at the moment, meaning I am not getting many orders filled. I will start catching up on that after the Easter Weekend.

Calgary Coin Gallery offers for sale a wide selection coins and paper money, including Canadian coins and paper money, ancient and medieval coins, and modern coins from around the world.

I buy many types of Canadian coins and paper money, ancient and medieval coins, US and modern world, as well as gold and silver coins of both collectable and metal value types. If you are looking to sell your coins, please bring them to the store and I will be happy to assess them and make an offer while you wait. I do not charge a fee to make an offer. I cannot make offers based on lists or phone calls as I have to see the actual coins in person in my store.

I am often busy in my store and dealing with several people at one time in person. This limits my ability to discuss collection, valuations or hand record orders on the phone, and sometimes I simply cannot do so. For such inquiries it is better to send and e-mail so that I can answer during quiet times or after hours. Orders can be placed by e-mail if not including payment information, but to send sensitive information such as credit card numbers, please use the secure order form on this website.

I am occasionally away at coins shows so best to phone ahead to confirm the store will be open.

Many people phone asking about coin values. A meaningful appraisal usually requires seeing the coins which makes accurate phone appraisals impossible. I can sometimes advise on a couple of coins on the phone, but time does not permit me to discuss long lists.

When time permits I will do insurance and estate written appraisals on coin collections but time is not always available for this. Please check with me if you need an appraisal done. I charge $75.00 per hour for written appraisals or verbal appraisals where detailed itemization is requested.


Calgary Coin News is a yahoo group I use to announce upcoming coin shows I will be set up at, major changes to this website, and other new relevant collectors who follow this website. I am the only one allowed to post to it, so it is not a traditional discussion group, but please feel free to join the group if you wish to receive such announcements from me. You will need to have a yahoo group membership in place to join. The title above is a link to the yahoo page.

I buy all types of gold and silver coins and bars but reserve the right to limit quantities of bullion at any one time. If you have large quantities please call ahead. I sometimes buy scrap gold jewelry but due to the time consuming nature of assessing the jewelry and filing the required police reposts, I will only buy jewelry if the store is not busy, which cannot be predicted in advance. I purchase larger silver non-jewelry items such as flatware sets, but do not buy silver jewelry. I do not buy or sell any type of silver and gold bullion through the mail.

I keep only limited amounts of cash on hand so for transactions over a few hundred dollars I will have to pay by cheque. I am licensed in the City of Calgary and follow the city bylaws requiring me to file a police report on all purchases, which require the seller to provide two pieces of identification one of which must be a government issued photo ID (Drivers license, passport, etc) and the other can be anything official but need not have a photo (heath care, credit card, etc). You must also provide proof of your address which may be on one of the ID's, but could be a piece of mail addressed to you, and you will be required to sign the report prior to payment being made. If you cannot not provide the required ID or are unwilling to sign the report, I cannot buy your items.
