Money Museum Showcase Highlights
Show attendees have the opportunity to see some of the world’s most beautiful and valuable coins, paper money and related numismatic treasures not seen anywhere else. The Museum Showcase features rare and historic items from the ANA’s Money Museum and items generously lent to the ANA from private collections.
The United States Mint produced 312,500 gold Eagles in 1933; however, fewer than 40 are known to survive today. The display at the 2023 National Money Show will be a rare public appearance for this historic coin designed by acclaimed sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
The First U.S. Cents
A spectacular display of the first cent coins of the United States, from the Fugio cent of 1787 to the large Liberty head cents issued from 1793 to 1799 representing the US Mint’s earliest coins.
The First U.S. Dimes
The United States Mint began operations in 1792 with experimental strikes of a limited number of coins. It did not issue a full range of authorized denominations until 1796 – the year the first dimes were put into circulation. This display features three 1796 and 1797 dimes showing the small eagle variety issued only in those two years – thus representing the first regular-issue dimes of the United States.
Display of Bank of the United States (1st, 2nd and 3rd banks; 1792-1841) notes and checks
Including checks signed by Winfield Scott.
