Thank you World’s Fair of Money Philadelphia August 14 – 18, 2018

World's Fair of Money | ANA Official Post | user_41824

The American Numismatic Association World’s Fair of Money Convention (WFOM) was held for the eighth time in the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia, PA. on August 14 – 18, 2018 in the Pennsylvania Convention Center. This had to be one of the busiest ANA conventions we have ever attended in many years. Even with the admission charge to enter the show, traffic was almost continuous since the doors opened until they closed on Saturday. Unlike past shows, many of the dealers stayed close to the end of the convention. If we started to write about all of the highlights we would have to get some publisher to write the book, but we will only cover some of them.

Philadelphia Was Off Da Hook, Ya'ow?

World's Fair of Money | VKurtB

I'm sorry, I have to say this - gripe all you want about the ignorant labor union rules at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, and you wouldn't be wrong. But I am quite sorry but Denver, Colorado; Anaheim, California; and even Rosemont, Illinois cannot hold a candle to Philly when it comes to dragging out a crowd for an ANA World's Fair of Money. Even school-aged kids were in abundance. Philly area school districts don't open until September 4th (they'll still be in class on June 10), some even later as they discover the mold that grew in their buildings this summer from record rainfalls. Last year, a random rifle shot up an aisle at Denver would have endangered no one!

Worth the trip

World's Fair of Money | CoinLady

The ANA World's Fair of Money will begin in less than two weeks. The setting is Philadelphia, a city filled with history. I recall a trip there years ago. Besides the coin show, there was the Mint, Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and of course, many good meals.

Day 3 of World’s Fair of Money Vacation (Denver Mint & Argo Gold Mine & Mill Tour)

World's Fair of Money | FortWorthCollector

For the third day of my trip, I had changed my itinerary to include the Denver Mint instead of going on the forth day as I had planned. So I woke up around 4:00 and got dressed and headed out of Colorado Springs so that I could be first in line to get tickets for the Mint Tour. To my surprise they had closed the Mint tours that week because the security that works the tour was at the show. I was able to get a picture of the front gate though. After leaving down town Denver I headed to Idaho Springs to go on the Argo Gold Mine & Mill tour. It was a great tour and very informative but if you have bad knees I would not recommend it.
