Museum Showcase

Visitors have the opportunity to see some of the world’s most beautiful and valuable coins, paper money and numismatic treasures. Located in West Hall E of the Orange County Convention Center, the ANA Museum Showcase offers first-class numismatic displays not seen anywhere else.

  • Spanish Treasure: Waters off Florida’s coast are known as the graveyard of the famed Spanish treasure fleets. This exhibit tells the story of Nuestra Señora de Atocha, which sank in 1622, and the ill-fated 1715 Treasure Fleet.
  • Florida National Bank Notes: The designs created for National Bank notes are among the most interesting and beautiful ever used by the United States. This collection—the only complete one of its kind—highlights notes from each Florida town or city that issued National Bank notes. The display is courtesy of William Youngerman.
  • 1913 Liberty Head Nickel & 1804 Draped Bust Dollar: On display are the Money Museum’s 1913 Liberty Head nickel, one of a mere five known, and the 1804 silver dollar-—the “King of U.S. Coins”—-of which only 15 were struck.
  • World War I Victory Medals: The Money Museum soon will unveil its newest exhibit, “Trenches to Treaties: World War I in Remembrance,” which will include the specimens on display here. Shown is a complete set of “victory medals” issued by the Allied nations and presented to veterans of the “War to End All Wars.”

Collector exhibits are among the most popular features at every ANA show.
