Deadline for showing a Collector's Exhibit at the World's Fair of Money is fast approaching (1)

American Numismatic Association members are invited to showcase their collectibles, research and creativity at the World's Fair of MoneySM in Philadelphia by creating a Collector Exhibit.

The show will be held Aug. 7-11 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The application deadline for collector exhibits is Friday, July 6.

The Collector Exhibits, a highlight of every ANA show, bring together talented numismatic exhibitors and stunning collections from across the nation. All areas of numismatics are represented, including U. S. coins and paper money, ancient coins, tokens, medals and exonumia.

Exhibitors have the option to enter their displays in competitive (judged), non-competitive, or marquee (invitational) categories. Competitive exhibits are judged on a variety of standards, including educational value, presentation and degree of difficulty.
