One of the highlights of the upcoming Heritage April 20-24 World Coins Signature Auction is the Douglas Robins Collection of Canadian Tokens, possibly the finest collection of Canadian tokens to have ever been offered in a single auction.

Long-time dealer Doug Robins began collecting Canadian tokens in the 1970s, and as time passed this became a total passion. Every time a rare token came up that he didn’t have, he bought it. After his death about a year ago, his family contacted Heritage to help disperse the collection, a task we gratefully accepted.

Many of the pieces are rare or even unique. Numerous proof issues are included, as are quite a few extremely rare silver issues. Here are just a few of the highlights:
