Collector Exhibits

The Collector Exhibits at ANA Conventions is one of the best attended and most interesting parts of the show. There are educational displays on every area of numismatics from ancient coins and artifacts, tokens and medals, world coins, to modern United States coins and paper money. 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.

Significant Changes Planned for ANA Exhibit Awards Recognitions

Reception Event Moved to New Day and Time

During the 2019 World’s Fair of Money, the Exhibit Awards will be presented in a new format. Due to time constraints at the annual convention banquet, the Charles H. Wolfe Sr. Memorial Award for YN Best-of-Show Exhibit, the Rodger E. Hershey Memorial People’s Choice Exhibit Award, the Radford Stearns Memorial Award for Excellence in Exhibiting, and the Howland Wood Memorial Award for Best-of-Show Exhibit will all be presented at the Exhibit Awards Presentation & Reception which is now scheduled for Saturday from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. in Room 46 of the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill.

These changes place some of the most distinguished exhibitor recognitions in context for the enjoyment of the exhibiting community and allow those earning top honors to be congratulated by their peers.

Exhibit tear down will take place after the conclusion of the reception.

Exhibitors will still receive discounted tickets for the annual convention banquet.

New Day and Time!

2019 Exhibit Awards Presentation & Reception

Saturday, August 17

1:30 – 3:00 pm.

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.
