The family-friendly event featured displays by government and private mints from around the world; expansive educational programs led by notable speakers sharing their numismatic expertise; exhibits of rare treasures from the Money Museum in Colorado Springs; hundreds of dealers buying and selling coins, currency and related items in all price ranges; and major auction events by Heritage Auctions and Stack’s Bowers Galleries.
“The 2016 World’s Fair of Money was well attended by our west coast members and others from around the country,” said ANA President Jeff Garrett. “Most dealers reported active sales and the auctions were well attended with record prices for many issues.
