Coin Kids also holds a Youth auction in conjunction with the RCNA Annual Convention, which is held in various Canadian cities since 1954. The auction provides young numismatists less than 18 years old with the opportunity to learn both about coins and coin auctions through hands-on experience. RCNA members and dealers donate materials for the youth auction. The youth participants bid for items using play currency and keep those items won.

If any collectors or dealers wish to donate items for junior members, please e-mail us at with information on what you would like to donate so we can confirm that these items are not already on hand in sufficient quantity. Donors are acknowledged on the summary sheet in the Kits as well as in The CN Journal.
