Calgary Coin Gallery is run by Robert Kokotailo and Rej Desjardins. We buy and sell a wide variety of numismatic collector items, including Canadian coins and paper money, modern world coins and paper money, ancient Greek and Roman, medieval European coins plus most types of gold and silver bullion.
If you have coins or gold and silver you are looking to sell please bring them in. We will assess them on the spot right in front of you to make an offer. We buy out right with immediate payment. We do not charge to make an offer so there is no fee if you decide not to sell.
All of our coins for sale are available in our store to buy in person. Many of our coins are also available by mail order and are listed on this website or Vcoins store.
Some web browsers keep a cache copy of websites you visit so if you have been on this site recently your browser might not load the most up to date version. You can force it to load the newest version three ways: 1) Hit the refresh button next to your address bar. 2) Press CONTROL-ALT-F5. 3) Use my button below. All three do the same thing but oddly they don't always work the first time.
I am progressing with my audit to remove sold coins and add new purchases. I have now complete the the world coins section. In the Canadian section I have done all certified coins (NGC, PCGS, ICCS etc) and non-certified coins over $60.00. I am now working on non-certified coins under $60. We have thousands of coins so this will take a while, but the sections now fully completed are:
As well as collector coins and paper money, I also deal in most types of gold and silver coins as well as bullion rounds and bars. I sometimes buy scrap gold jewelry if time permits but assessing jewelry is more time consuming than coins and bullion. I purchase larger silver items such as flatware, tea sets, etc.
We keep limited cash on hand so when buying larger values collections we will have to pay by my company cheque. We are licensed in the City of Calgary and follow the city bylaws requiring me to take your ID and file a police report on all purchases. You will need two pieces of ID including a non-expired government photo ID such as a driver's license, Alberta ID, passport, etc. The second ID must be something official but need not have a photo, such as heath care, credit card, etc. You must provide proof of your address which may be on you ID but if not can be a piece of mail such as a bill addressed to you. Preparing the report usuall takes only a few minutes and you will be required to sign the report. If you cannot provide the required ID or are unwilling to sign the report, I cannot buy your items.
We ship to addresses in Canada and USA but generally not other countries. This is mostly due to sales tax rules many countries have implemented requiring the shipper to collect their taxes from the buyer, register with the tax department in that country and arrange to forward the proceeds. For a smaller business like ours the logistics of that can prohibitive.
