The inaugural Chicago Coin Expo (CCE) will take place April 5 – 8 at the Chicago Cultural Center and is now hosted by Harlan J. Berk, Ltd. (HJB) and the History In Your Hands Foundation.
More than 1,000 coin and currency enthusiasts, collectors, history buffs and curious visitors of all ages are expected to attend the free expo to view, learn and purchase items from more than 75 dealers participating in the event. The show brings together coin experts from around the world and will feature auctions, lectures and two rooms of numismatic dealers. The show is free and open to the general public with a suggested donation to the History in Your Hands Foundation. All net proceeds from the event will benefit HIYHF, a federally recognized 501c3 (www.hiyhf.org).
“As a long-established Chicago firm we feel obligated to present a sophisticated, well-organized and enjoyable show,” says Aaron Berk, a noted ancient numismatic and classical antiquity expert. “We felt there was no more appropriate venue than the Chicago Cultural Center to showcase the rich history, artistry and value of coins and collections and their significance to human civilization. Plus, this convenient location allows dealers and expo visitors to take advantage of the vibrant downtown scene and visit Chicago’s treasured cultural attractions.”
The show kicks off on Wednesday, April 5 with an early bird preview opportunity at 4:00 p.m., followed by a welcoming cocktail reception in the G.A.R. Rotunda from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. The show will be open to the general public free of charge Thursday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Auctions will be held Thursday – Saturday by Gemini Auctions and Heritage Auctions, one of the world’s largest auction houses.
