Red Deer RCMP look for the owner of recovered coin collection

October 3, 2016 2:49 PM

Red Deer, Alberta – Red Deer RCMP are looking for the owner of a coin collection that police recovered in a stolen truck last month. This is not a formal coin collection, as the coins are not catalogued or displayed in cases; it appears to be a collection of loose coins brought back from travels to various countries around the world and likely has as much sentimental value to its owner as it does monetary value. The collection consists of some paper currency and numerous coins.

Red Deer RCMP found the collection in a truck that had been stolen out of Calgary, and subsequently recovered in Red Deer on September 4. For that reason, RCMP cannot determine what community the theft of coins may have occurred in.

Please see the attached photograph of several pieces of paper currency within the larger collection.

If you were the victim of a theft of a collection of currency from around the world, please contact Red Deer RCMP Exhibits staff at 403-406-2574 from Monday to Friday between 8 am and 4 pm. You will be asked to describe a number of pieces from the collection to prove ownership.
