Visit SilverTowne at the 2014 ANA World's Fair of Money in Chicago

2014 ANA World's Fair of Money

The 2014 American Numismatic Association's (ANA) World's Fair of Money show kicked off August 5th and runs through August 9th in Chicago, Illinois. SilverTowne is among the many dealers in attendance, so be sure to come see us if you are attending the show! We love to meet coin enthusiasts face-to-face and discuss anything numismatic. In addition to meeting your favorite dealers on the bourse floor, you won't want to miss the great presentations, educational classes and auctions. There is always so much to do at these larger shows!

Special presentations at the 2014 World's Fair of Money include 'Coin Collecting 101' and a free workshop on 'Coin Collecting Basics'. There are also workshops for Girl Scouts to help them earn the Fun with Money Patch and for Boy Scouts to work on the BSA Coin Collecting Merit Badge. In addition to the workshops, younger attendees will find lots of fun activities in the Kids Zone. Furthermore, you can receive free appraisals on up to three coins or other numismatic items at the Free Appraisals Area, sponsored by Coin World, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 9th.

Of course, a big draw at this year's show is the opportunity to purchase the new 2014 Gold Kennedy Coin. Only 500 of these coins are being offered each day by the U.S. Mint though, so arrive early if this is part of your plans. Whether you're looking to buy, sell or just chat with other numismatic enthusiasts, you'll find plenty of opportunities to interact. See the full show schedule at the World's Fair of Money website.

Adding to the allure of major coin shows is the chance to explore the city and surrounding areas where the shows are held. Visitors to the 2014 World's Fair of Money Show will be able to enjoy everything that Chicago has to offer, including the local cuisine, attractions and more. Options include museums, zoos, aquariums, theatres, historical sites and of course shopping. To learn more, see the 'trip planning guide to Chicago' on the show's website.
