The Week in Shows (Jan. 27-Feb. 2)

While there are no shows on the numismatic docket this week, next week will see three major events held in two provinces and one nearby U.S. city.

First up next week is the biannual Paris Coin Show, which is held each February and August at the Paris Fairgrounds on 139 Silver St., in Paris, Ont. Billed as “Canada’s best one-day coin and collectables show,” the event will be held Feb. 3 and feature more than 50 tables of coins, paper money, tokens, militaria and more. The bourse will be open to the public from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., and the $4 admission charge includes a draw ticket for a gold coin.

Next week will also see the Association des Numismates Francophones du Canada’s annual Coin and Stamp Show, which will be held Feb. 9-10 and feature more than 40 tables of merchants and exhibitors. Hosted at the Best Western Plus Hôtel Universel on 915 rue Hains in Drummondville, Qué., the show is open to the public from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and boasts free admission.


Rounding out next week’s events is the Coins and Collectibles Show 2019, which will be held Feb. 9 at Lewiston Fire Station #2 on 1705 Saunders Settlement Rd., in Lewiston, N.Y.—only about a 10-minute drive from the Queenston-Lewiston Bridge in Niagara Falls, Ont.
