Collector Exhibits at American Numismatic Association Conventions Eligible to Receive Prizes

The following is a press release from the American Numismatic Association (ANA) announcing that collector exhibitors at the National Money Show will be eligible for prizes. The National Money Show will be held from March 11-13, 2022 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

One of the big draws of American Numismatic Association (ANA) conventions are the featured collector exhibits on display. The individual creativity in these displays at the National Money Show® and the World’s Fair of Money® is rivaled only by the quality and variety of the items on display. 
To recognize collectors who share their knowledge, research, creativity and collections by displaying an exhibit, the ANA is providing appreciation medals to every exhibitor and prizes such as gold coins and silver American Eagles to winners in several competitive categories. Exhibitors must be members of the ANA. 
Displays on any area of numismatics are encouraged – from ancient coins and artifacts, tokens and medals to world coins, modern U.S. coins and paper money. Exhibits are carefully evaluated by a team of dedicated judges and awarded points in areas such as “Numismatic Information,” “Presentation” or “Degree of Difficulty.” 
To encourage additional collector exhibits at the March 11-13 National Money Show in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the exhibit application deadline has been extended to Friday, February 11.
