International Coin Collectors (ICC) will be making a stop in Parksville at the Sunrise Ridge Waterfront Resort (1175 Resort Drive), on Tuesday, May 29 to Saturday, June 2.
Show hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. The ICC will be purchasing coins, paper currency, gold and silver on behalf of their global network of collectors, dealers and refineries. This special event is free and open to the public.
ICC spokesman Mark Cooper said, “We hope to spend at least $250,000 while we are in town, purchasing people’s old coin collections, vintage bank notes and scrap gold and silver. It’s been all over the news — gold and silver are trading at record highs — and people everywhere are scrambling to cash in. We buy a lot of class rings, mismatched earrings and broken necklaces. Just a small handful of gold can add up to hundreds of dollars very quickly.”
Traveling from small towns to large cities, the ICC hosts hundreds of events each year.
While meeting one-on-one with each guest, the ICC specialists review, research and evaluate the items and will make an offer to purchase all gold coins, silver coins made before 1965 and paper money printed prior to 1934.
