According to organizers, the ANA Road Show gives collectors an opportunity to see some of the most impressive items from the ANA’s Edward C. Rochette Money Museum.
“The ANA Road Show adds an extra level of excitement to the LVNS Diamond Jubilee celebration,” said Fred Kuch, LVNS Trust Chairman. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for hobbyists to see some of the most legendary numismatic treasures from the Money Museum.”
Items to be displayed at the Diamond Jubilee Coin Show, which will be held May 18-20 at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino, located at 3000 Paradise Rd., include:
- the 1804 dollar, which is recognized by collectors as “The King of U.S. Coins.” The specimen is extremely rare with only 15 known examples. No U.S. dollars dated 1804 were actually struck in that year;
- the 1913 Liberty Head Nickel, which is one of the most valuable of all U.S. coins. It was one of five such nickels struck under mysterious circumstances at the Philadelphia Mint. The coins were unknown until 1920 when Samuel Brown, a former U.S. Mint employee, displayed all five at an ANA convention, causing a stir; and
- the Famous Errors exhibit, which offers a highlight reel of some of the most notable U.S. numismatic bloopers, including the 1955 doubled-die Lincoln cent, the classic 1937-D “three-legged” Buffalo nickel, the 2004 Wisconsin “extra-leaf” quarter, and the 2007–2009 “godless” dollars. All of these coins feature errors that are easily visible to the naked eye, making them popular collector items and curiosity pieces.
The LVNS Diamond Jubilee Coin Show is open to the public interested in buying and selling rare coins, vintage paper money, and other numismatic rarities. Visit lasvegascoinclub.com for more details.
