Geoffrey Bell Auctions

Auction Details

Welcome to our inaugural Geoffrey Bell Auction at the East Coast Extravaganza in Halifax, Nova Scotia - Canada’s most enjoyable show! This auction brings a diverse selection of numismatic material with rare offerings of Banque Nationale, Bank of Nova Scotia combined with great chartered and Canadian Banknotes. We went all out to obtain “lots” for all collectors!

Our company is primarily composed of the Bell Family - Dawn, Brian, Geoffrey and Sylvia. We also have taken great strides to surround ourselves with the most reputable people in the business to ensure our offerings are presented with integrity, honesty and fairness to both the seller and buyer. A huge Thank You goes out to Don Olmstead and Mary-Anne Luzba for their tireless efforts in preparing the catalogue in a timely fashion. Also, for the security during the viewing session and the administrative help, a big Thank You to Linda Robinson, Bill Brayley, Bruce Estabrooks, Ben Vienneau, Gerard Feehan, George Murray and Kathy Swenson. In all, over a dozen wonderful people were involved in this project.

Our team sincerely hopes you enjoy this new experience of auctioning the “olde way”.

A purchaser’s commission will be added to the Hammer Price. Floor bidders 15%, eBay Live Auction Bidders 20% will be added. Appropriate GST, PST or HST will be added for lots delivered in Canada. No taxes added if shipped out of the country.
