Finally a digital Canadian Coin News

CCN on reader

We're finally ready to take the wraps off our special project: a digital version of Canadian Coin News.

Our new product is basically an electronic version of our existing magazine, but it will be made available online the same day the print copies are put in the mail. That means you get your digital copy quickly, anywhere in the world.

The digital version is hot-linked, meaning that you can click on advertisements, websites, or email addresses on the digital page to get more information, or send a quick message.

The digital version is available through the website of our "visual printer" Zinio. That means you can read Canadian Coin News anywhere you have access to the Internet, which amounts to almost the entire planet today.

Canadian Coin News is a large page publication with lots of small type. While you can view the web page on a smartphone, it may involve a lot more scrolling than you like, unless you have a telephone with a 15-inch screen, you will find yourself scrolling quite a bit. I've tried it, and while it may not be my first choice, it is possible.

For now, the price of a digital version is the same as a print version. While it is true that we don't have to pay to print electronic magazines, we have a number of additional costs that are unique to the digital format. You can convert from print to digital if you choose for the remainder of your subscription.

Right now we're at the early stage of a digital experience, but I'm quite sure it is just the start of a whole new way for you and me to share our love of coins.

Tokens take off at Toronto sale

By Bret Evans

Geoffrey Bell Auctions' May 29-30 sale in Toronto saw several lots exceed their estimates by substantial amounts.

"The sale was an overall success," Brian Bell said. "The tokens did very well."

The feature of the auction was the George H. Thomson collection of pre-Confederation tokens.

"George showed up at the auction," Bell said. "And he had a really good time. That was nice to see."

The collection, which Thomson had been building since the mid-1970s, dominated the second session...
