Display an Exhibit at an ANA Convention


About Collector Exhibits

The individual creativity is rivaled only by the quality and variety of the items on display. Each display invites the viewer to Discover and Explore the World of Money. Members are invited to share their knowledge, research, creativity and collections with other members and the general public at ANA’s annual conventions by preparing and displaying a numismatic exhibit.

World’s Fair of Money® Exhibiting Information

Exhibits are divided into one of three groups:

Competitive: exhibits that are placed in classes according their content and theme. They are carefully evaluated by a team of dedicated judges, awarded points in areas such as “Numismatic Information,” “Presentation” or “Degree of Difficulty” and compete for individual awards. Most exhibits on display fit into this category.

Non-competitive: exhibits that are not judged and not eligible for awards (except the People’s Choice Award). ANA staff and convention officials may exhibit in this group.

Marquee: invitational, non-competitive, non-conforming exhibits that are used to enhance the exhibit area. This group includes exhibits from the ANA Money Museum.
