The first two sessions, to be held Sept. 8, will explore marketing and communications for the 21st-century hobbyist and error coin production, respectively.
Long-time writer for Canadian Coin News, former public relations advisor for a large Canadian utility and seasoned collector Jeff Fournier will highlight modern marketing and communication concepts in an informal, 1.5-hour workshop at the upcoming show.
A seminar exploring error coins, including how the sought-after pieces are produced in the minting process, will also be held Sept. 8 by Henry Nienhuis, president of the Royal Canadian Numismatic Association (RCNA). An error collector since the early 1970s, Nienhuis is also the president of the Canadian Errors and Varieties Numismatic Association, also known as CEVNA.
The final seminar, to be held Sept. 9, will be geared towards engaging young collectors.
Later that day, a “Young Collectors” auction will be hosted by Lisa McPherson, national youth co-ordination of the RCNA and first vice-president of the Ontario Numismatic Association. The Sept. 9 auction, which is free for children to participate in, will feature at least 25 lots of coin and stamp material thanks to donations from show organizers, dealers and participating hobby associations.
