Minted as a special tribute to this year’s convention, the limited mintage coin is available through J&M Coin and Jewellery Ltd., from Vancouver, B.C. While owner Joe Iorio is amongst more than 800 dealers at the five-day show, he is the exclusive dealer to purchase the special coin. While, overall, the coin first appears as a standard SML, what makes it collectable is the addition of a small ANA lamp of learning logo along with the word Chicago, below to one side of the maple leaf on the reverse. The mintage is limited to 7,500, and the coin retails for $79.95. As with other privy mark SMLs, the coin is finished in the Royal Canadian Mint’s (RCM) reverse Proof finish, with brilliant devices on frosted fields.  It has a weight of one troy ounce, a diameter of 38 mm, a face value of $5, and silver purity of .9999. The World’s Fair of Money continues until Saturday in Hall A of the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, 5555 N. River Road, in Rosemont.
