ANA Worlds Fair of Money: Error Coins
Post date: Wednesday, August 3, 2016 - 13:44



The ANA World’s Fair of Money is right around the corner, and we will be attending! The show has some 500+ tables, and thousands of collectors and dealers will be in attendance making for an exciting and fast-paced coin show. This year the show is being held at the convention center in Anaheim, California, which is right next to Disneyland. Here is a link to the ANA's information about the show: https://www.money.org/worldsfairofmoney

 

In terms of error coin happenings, CONECA will be having it’s annual banquet and awards, and the club will also have a table at the show (#789.) We will be set up at the show at table #747, with hundreds of major mint errors for sale. Other error dealers will be there, as well as well-known luminaries in the error hobby, so all in all it should be a busy and exciting show for error collectors! 

 

PCGS and NGC will be set-up, and accepting submissions of error coins at the show, and if you have coins to submit, you can save shipping costs by submitting at the show instead of by mail. Also, PCGS is doing a bunch of giveaways, so stop by their table to take advantage of those. NGC will be having an opportunity for collectors to meed former Mint Director Edmund C. Moy, and the Mint's 12th Chief Engraver John Mercanti at their booth, and get autographs. 

 

Although perhaps you should avoid showing them your mint errors, but the U.S. Mint will have a booth, as will mints from around the world. Typically they feature their newest coin products, and sometimes special sets are available there at the show. They mints are fun to wlak through, and see what new coins are being produced, as well as recent technological inovations that are occuring. 

 

If you attend, be sure and stop by our table to buy, sell, or simply talk errors. We look forward to seeing you at the show, and if you come, you will have a blast!
