Red Deer RCMP are searching for the rightful owner of a coin collection that was recovered inside a stolen truck last month.

On Sept. 4, officers discovered┬áthe money inside a truck that had been stolen from Calgary. The truck was found in Red Deer, so police aren’t sure in which community the owners might live.

The collection includes several foreign bills and coins.

“This is not a formal coin collection, as the coins are not catalogued or displayed in cases,” RCMP said in a media release Monday afternoon.

“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.”

If you are the owner of the stolen collection, you’re asked to call the Red Deer RCMP detachment at 403-406-2574 to prove ownership.
