Money Museum Showcase

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.

Tyrants of the Nile

The latest Tyrant Collection exhibit – Tyrants of the Nile – will debut during the World’s Fair of Money. Valued at $5 million, this display presents a comprehensive timeline of Egyptian history that dates back millennia.

From the earliest coin struck in ancient Egypt to a 1938 King Farouk gold proof “Royal Wedding” 500 piastres, this exhibit is packed with show-stopping treasures from a dynamic and revered civilization.

1794 silver dollar

1794 Flowing Hair Dollar

The finest known 1794 Flowing Hair dollar, believed by many experts to be the first silver dollar struck by the United States Mint, will be displayed for perhaps the last time for years to come. Insured for $15 million, it is going into a private collection after the 2024 convention. GreatCollections, the ANA’s Official Auctioneer, bought the coin for $12 million at the 2022 ANA World’s Fair of Money®.

The Specimen (SP)-66 1794 silver dollar, as well as a rare gold 1861 Paquet Reverse Double Eagle, and the most complete collection of Red Seal National Bank Notes (all with serial number one) will be part of a $30 million display courtesy of GreatCollections.

Disclaimer

Collectors and dealers are often contacted by unauthorized “service providers” offering to sell or reserve hotel rooms for convention attendees. Please know that the ANA does not work with third-party vendors. Ignore unsolicited attempts to book you a hotel room; these are scams. Other scams offer to sell you a list of convention attendees, offer expo services, or pitch online directories. The ANA never sells or shares the names of its members, convention attendees or exhibitors with any third party. Don’t engage with them.

Show Photography and Videography Policy

All programs and events sponsored by the American Numismatic Association (ANA) at the World’s Fair of Money are the exclusive property of the Association. No one is permitted to record or reproduce such events, orally or visually, by digital recording, videotape recording, audio cassette recording, or by any other means for commercial purposes without the express consent of the ANA. No exhibit, performance or event presented at a World’s Fair of Money shall be photographed, videotaped, broadcast or recorded for commercial use or sale without the express consent of the ANA. This rule does not prohibit videotaping or other visual or oral recordings by an exhibitor at an ANA show made entirely within the booth space leased by that exhibitor.

Private, non-commercial photography and videography for personal use by visitors, exhibitors and vendors/dealers will be permitted in some areas of the convention hall and meeting rooms with the permission of those being photographed or videoed and/or permission of the dealer or exhibitor whose items are the subjects of the photo or video.
