ANA Invites Exhibitors to Milwaukee World’s Fair of Money® August 8-12
The American Numismatic Association is inviting its members to showcase their collections, knowledge and creativity with fellow collectors by presenting a numismatic exhibit at the Milwaukee World’s Fair of Money®, Aug. 8-12.
Exhibitors have the option to enter their displays in competitive (judged, with open and young numismatist divisions), non-competitive or marquee (invitational) categories. Competitive exhibits are judged on a variety of standards, including educational value, presentation and degree of difficulty. There are 26 classes in the open competitive division, and seven in the young numismatist division. A new class, “Convention Theme,” will entertain and educate attendees with the event’s theme, “Collecting Coins Captures Time: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.”
The collector exhibit area brings together talented numismatists and exceptional collections from across the world, and is a highlight of all ANA conventions. Every area of numismatics is represented, including United States coins and paper money, ancient and medieval coins, tokens and medals, and other topics from across the globe.
For complete rules, application forms, and resources for preparing an exhibit, visit www.money.org (Select “World’s Fair of Money” from the “Featured Links” tab, then select “Collector Exhibit Area Information & Applications”). Exhibit applications must be submitted by July 2. For questions or more information about presenting a numismatic exhibit in Milwaukee, call 719-482-9826 or e-mail email@example.com.
