Three seminars on Saturday, Sunday

Three engaging seminars and a combined coin and stamp auction exclusively for children will be held at this weekend’s National Postage Stamp and Coin Show in Mississauga.

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.
