Who We Are

Brad and Leah founded Prairie Coin in Regina, Saskatchewan in 2001. Originally, it was created as a part-time business that took off into a full time venture.

I (Brad) worked in the construction trade until 1996 when I started working for my father in his coin & stamp shop (Barrie’s Coins & Stamps) which he has run for over 40 years. With computers becoming very popular I decided to get one and learn a thing or two about them. We found it a great tool for making lists for the store and we were off. I then bought a better computer for home to check out what the Internet was all about. The amount of information was amazing we spent hours and hours just looking at all that was out there. Then in 2001 Leah and I decided to start our own business (Prairie Coin) and try out Ebay to list over stock from Barrie’s part-time in the evenings. Leah had worked in retail part time but had decided to become a full time mom. The more we put on the more we sold I would list the items and Leah would handle the emails and payments. Well since then, thanks to our customers we have sold 1000’s of items on eBay and our website. I (Brad) still do the listing and Leah helps with organization and design ideas.

That brings us up to date and our newest venture the Prairie Coin web site. This is our second site, our last site served us well for many years but the company we were using just seemed to be falling behind in the times. So we decided to make a clean start and rebuild the way we had envisioned our site.

We hope that you will find this site useful for your collecting needs. We will be adding new items and features all the time so please check back often.

If you can’t find what you are looking for please ask.

Thanks

Brad & Leah
