2021 NYINC cancelled

Billed as the “largest and most prestigious numismatic event in the U.S. targeting the needs of the world and ancient numismatic communities,” the 2021 New York International Numismatic Convention (NYINC) has been cancelled due to COVID-19.

Held every January in New York City, the convention typically features dozens of dealers on the bourse, eight days of auctions conducted by eight major auction houses, several high-profile seminars and club meetings.

Because of what they call an “unprecedented environment,” the show’s board of directors recently determined there was “no viable option other than to cancel the 2021 NYINC,” said board president Mike Dunigan and bourse chair Kevin Foley in a joint statement.

“Moreover, our board concluded as well that in light of the serious threat of infection transmission that would have been faced by our participants, the cancellation was the only responsible decision we could have reached.”

The 2022 convention – the show’s 50th since 1972 – is scheduled for the Grand Hyatt New York on Jan. 7-16, 2022.
