Morinville police recovered a large coin collection after executing a search warrant and are hoping to return the collection.
RCMP executed a search warrant in December of 2014 on a rural residence outside of Morinville after an investigation into stolen property.
Efforts to return the substantial amount of property recovered have been made but a coin collection with both monetary and sentimental value is unclaimed.
The coin collection includes an Olympic coin set and a 1939-1945 Volunteer Service Medal, awarded to someone who volunteered in the Canadian Military.
The collection, found in a black case, goes back several decades; the earliest coin dating back to 1901.
Police showed CTV News a small selection of the coins found.
“We want to show enough that the owner will recognize and say: ‘Hey this is my stuff’,” Cpl. Lauren Scott said. “Then call us and identify exactly what was in the collection.”
RCMP are asking for any information on who owns this property. If you believe the collection is yours and can identify items in the collection please contact the Morinville RCMP Detachment at 780-939-4550 and ask for Constable Plamondon.
