Coin shows are a great venue for meeting other numismatists, buying and selling coins, and learning something new about the pastime you love. Hundreds of coin shows are staged around the United States each year, some quite large and others small.
Regardless of size, they all offer enriching opportunities for the coin collector, coin investor, and anyone who enjoys studying money. Coin shows are usually hosted or at least sponsored by coin clubs, which take an active part in promoting the hobby and expanding the ranks of the coin collecting community.
Here’s a look at just some of the coin shows happening around the United States during the week of August 13-19, 2015:
