Want to give a money talk?

American Numismatic Association members are encouraged to share their ideas and research with fellow hobbyists by delivering a Numismatic Theatre presentation at the Spring National Money Show?, May 10-12 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.

Numismatic Theatre consists of 30-45 minute presentations on a wide range of topics. It gives collectors a chance to share their expertise with fellow hobbyists.

Topics from previous conventions include "The Comstock Lode and the Carson City Mint," "Introduction to the Numismatics of Colorado" and "The S.S. Central America Treasure: Numismatic Time Capsule." A videographer will be on hand to record most presentations; talks should be accompanied by digital images or slides.
