Tales from the Vault | ANA Official Post | Benstheman

World War I (1914-1918), also called “The Great War,” or “the War to End all Wars,” forever changed history. Unprecedented bloodshed on the battlefield was accompanied by social upheaval and revolution as ancient empires toppled and new nations were founded.

Thank you Ocala Coin Club for ANA table at your 34th Annual Coin Show

News | ANA Official Post | ANAStaff

By John and Nancy Wilson, ANA National VolunteersThe Ocala Coin club http://www.ocalacoinclub.com held their 34th Annual Coin Show on February 2 – 4, 2017 at the Motel 6 Conference Center in Ocala, FL. We want to thank the Ocala Coin Club Show Chairman Rich Selvar, Club President Lawrence McManus and the officers and members for providing a table for the American Numismatic Association ANA – www.money.org Our location at the front entrance was super and we were able to sign up 20 new or renewing members, plus convert one to Life Membership. A special thanks to Professor Paul Chun from Gainesville, FL for donating $25 for the shipment of the coin show kit.The Motel 6 conference center, located right off I-75 is a great location for the annual coin show. The convention center is well-lit and has free parking. The 53 dealers occupying 70 tables were kept busy by the 924 who registered for the event. Security was outstanding. Much of the success is due to the 500 post cards sent out, local paid and free newspaper advertising and the numismatic press, including the free “local coin shows” ad in The Numismatist. The show is already sold out for next year’s event. The club is a 50 + year member of the ANA.The show featured free admission, wooden nickels, hourly silver coin prizes, an all gold raffle and free coins for kids. The food vendor had outstanding selections and reasonable prices. The club had over 30 members assisting at registration, raffle sales, with many of them helping with set-up and breakdown. We look forward to next year’s Ocala Coin Club show which is set for this same location on February 1 - 3, 2018.Thanks again, John and Nancy Wilson ANA National Volunteers
