We often get asked the question, “Are you from British Columbia?” The answer is obviously, no, we are Bob and Carole from Stratford, Ontario! However, it does break the ice with new customers and invites interesting contacts and conversations and hopefully, new business.
B.C Coins is a home based business established in 1980, registered in 1989 and incorporated in February 1999. B.C. Coins is owned and operated by Bob and Carole Dowsett of Stratford, Ontario. We have been actively involved in the buying, selling, trading and appraising of coins, currency and estates for the past twenty-nine years.
We did our first Stratford Farmer’s Market way back in 1988-89. We deal mainly with Canadian coins and currency as well as all gold and silver bullion.
We are members of the following numismatic associations, The ONA, the Ontario Numismatic Association, life member; The RCNA, the Royal Canadian Numismatic Society, life member. CAND, Canadian Association of Numismatic Dealers.
Bob is past President of the Stratford Coin Club and a past member of the Dealer Control Committee for CAND. Saturday mornings you will find us at the Stratford Farmer’s Market in our great new surroundings.
Our offices are open during the week, Monday to Friday, by appointment only, as coins are not kept on premises for security reasons. We look forward to seeing everyone at the Stratford Farmer’s Market, or contact us at 519-271-8884
