Helping at a Coin Show

Young Numismatists Exchange | 1877 Indian Head Cent

I like to attend coin shows. When I am there, I can help at the kid’s table. I am not old enough to be a page and help the dealers, but one day I will be big enough to help the dealers. At the kid’s table I can help introduce people to coin collecting. We have trivia games with prizes such as coin albums and coins. We have coloring books and crayons. We have information about how to help kids start a coin collection. We have foreign coins and US coins that we give out when they finish the trivia. The foreign coins are from lots of different countries. The US coins are Wheat Cents, Lincoln Memorial Cents, Westward Journey Nickels, and 2006 brilliant uncirculated nickels. The books were provided by our coin club. The albums and coins were donated by coin club members. The American Numismatic Association (ANA) can provide materials too. At the coin show, some dealers even bring coins over to the kid’s table to give them away. The dealers sometimes give coins out specially for me because I am helping at the kid’s table.
