On August 16, 2014, George Manz, F.R.C.N.A., was awarded a Fellow of the Royal Canadian Numismatic Association at the RCNA convention in Toronto. To date, only 40 numismatists have been presented with this prestigeous award since it was first awarded in 1991.
I've got thousands of Canadian, British, Australian, Irish and world
coins and paper money for sale. Everything, from ancients to medals
and tokens to odd & curious money and numismatic books. It doesn't
matter what you collect, I've probably got something that you will want
for your collection.

RECENT PURCHASES: Extremely Rare Riel Rebellion military medals, better known as North West Rebellion 1885 medals. One of the medals has the Saskatchewan Clasp and was awarded to a soldier aboard the steamship gunboat Northcote. Another medal with clasp was awarded to a North West Mounted Police constable who fought at Duck Lake. (for more info press the Militaria icon to your left and then Canada).
Among the most notable coins I have owned are 11 different 1921 silver 5 cents, several 1893 Round Top 10 cents (including one from the Norweb Collection), 1906 Small Crown 25 cents, numerous 1872H A/V (Die Break A) 25 cents, 1870 No LCW 50 cents, 1947 ML Curved Right 50 cents, numerous 1948 silver dollars, 5 different 1966 Small Beads silver dollars, and an extremely rare 1916c gold sovereign from the Belzberg Collection. As you can see, I'm interested in coins that are difficult to obtain, including JOP dollars and early Specimen sets from 1908 and 1911. Newfoundland rarities include 1946c 5 cents (only 2041 minted) and 1880 $2 gold (only 2500 minted). I also specialize in the tokens and artifacts of the Hudson's Bay Company and the North West Company. My NWC token was recently sold to the Royal Alberta Museum where it will be on permanent display. Other rarities include a Prince Edward Island holey dollar and a Yap Stone. I am currently looking to purchase rare Canadian Government and Chartered Bank Notes and HBC paper money, PEI holey dollars and plugs, as well as Victorian-era Canadian Indian Treaty medals. Also of interest are early Governor General of Canada medals in bronze, silver and gold, especially those of Lord Stanley and Earl Grey.
