The American Numismatic Association (ANA) has announced that their annual World’s Fair of Money will take place August 13-17, 2019 in the Chicago, Illinois suburb of Rosemont. The event is one of the largest numismatic events in the world and brings in collectors and dealers from around the world.
As a bonus to ANA members, admission into the event will be allowed 30 minutes prior to opening to the public. This gives ANA members time to shop and talk to dealers in a more intimate setting. As always, ANA members are free to enter the event while the general public is $8 for admission.
Attendees can find out what their old coins and paper money might be worth, build their collections from the best numismatic inventory available anywhere, and participate in live auctions with Heritage Auctions (www.ha.com) and Stack’s Bowers Galleries (www.stacksbowers.com). More than 500 dealers from across the nation will be on the bourse floor buying, selling and trading.
Amazing collections of historic rare coins and currency are always a popular draw at the World’s Fair of Money. Attendees can see a Lincoln cent that sold for $1 million, a famous $3 million nickel and treasures from private collections.
The convention also offers lectures and seminars presented by some of the leading names in the hobby, kids activities and abundant opportunities for networking and fellowship.
Show hours are 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 13; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 14-16; and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 17. ANA members can enter the show 30 minutes before the public. Admission is $8 for adults; ANA members and children 12 and under are always free. Last admission is 30 minutes prior to closing.
