Build Your Collection from the Best Numismatic Inventory Anywhere
It’s not too early to make plans for the American Numismatic Association’s (ANA) 2019 National Money Show in Pittsburgh. The convention takes place March 28-30 in Hall B of the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.
The three-day show offers access to hundreds of dealers offering the best numismatic inventory available; a live auction; a wide range of technical seminars and educational presentations; and spectacular exhibits of priceless rarities from the ANA’s Edward C. Rochette Money Museum in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Many coin dealers in attendance will provide free, informal evaluations of the public’s old coins and paper money.
Among the special displays of extraordinary items from the Money Museum will be the famous 1913 Liberty Head nickel. One of only five known to exist, the specimen is valued in excess of $3 million. Also on display will be “The King of U.S. Coins”, an extremely rare 1804 Draped Bust U.S. silver dollar insured for $4 million.
Kagin’s of Tiburon, California, will conduct a public auction of rare coins and paper money.
The ANA is offering two educational courses in conjunction with the show: “Detecting Counterfeit U.S. Gold Coinage” and “Introduction to Cherrypicking Die Varieties”. Enroll for a seminar by January 25 for an early enrollment discount.
The Westin Convention Center, Pittsburgh is offering special rates to ANA conventioneers. The hotel features on-site underground parking, a fitness studio, car rental services, restaurants, an on-site Starbucks and a skywalk to the convention center. The stylish and contemporary traditional rooms are among the largest in the city and offer views of downtown or the river.
With the David L. Lawrence Convention Center conveniently located between Pittburgh’s downtown cultural district, the historic strip district and the Allegheny River, there is much to explore throughout the city. Take a Walk the Burgh Tour, enjoy the collection of art at the Andy Warhol Museum or get your history fix at the Senator John Heinz History Center. An abundance of restaurants are just steps away.
