Police are asking for help finding the alleged thief, who stole the coins and bills last month.

Police are investigating after a British Columbia man had around $500,000 worth of rare coins and bills stolen from his vehicle while it was parked in Mississauga last month.

The 68-year-old man had travelled to Ontario for a collectibles convention, police said. He parked in a hotel parking near Edwards Blvd. and Derry Rd. on Sept. 28, leaving two bags of coins and bills inside his vehicle.

According to police, a suspect — described as a balding man with a heavy build and between the ages of 35 and 45 — broke into the collector’s vehicle at around 1 p.m. that day and walked away with the bags.

The stolen bank notes and coins include an American $20 coin and Canadian $5 bills issued by the Bank of Hamilton and the Molsons Bank.

Surveillance video of the alleged suspect has been released by police.
