Coins, Paper money, tokens, medals and exmunia. Started in 1975 Peter M.McDonald Montreal, Canada

About the company

Peter McDonald started working for Solar Enterprises in 1975, as a helper for distributing 1976 Montreal Olympic coins in the Montreal region. After the Games, it was decided to expand into collectible coins and Canadian Mint products. A new firm, Mintmaster International Ltd, was created to do this job and for the next 4 years, we distributed Mint product and bullion coins to Canada, USD and Europe. One of our more successful programs was the Gold and Silver Beaver .9999 coins. in 1980, the firm expanded into foreign exchange and bullion and continued till 1999. In 1999, I left the firm and started Peter McDonald Coins, having a retail outlet on St-James St, Montreal. As the years went by, it became apparent that retail was becoming too expensive to maintain, so I closed the retail location and worked from a Post Office box nearer to home. Since then I travel to shows in Canada, USD and Europe; buying, selling, building and deconstructing collections. I write articles for various publications, assist coin dealers in organizing their inventories, and sell on Ebay.
