ANA Money Fair up in air as coronavirus surges across U.S.

As the United States deals with tens of thousands of new COVID-19 cases each day, show organizers with the American Numismatic Association (ANA) are still planning to hold the 2020 Summer Seminar and World’s Fair of Money.

The Summer Seminar venue, Colorado College, will decide on whether the event can be held on its campus in late April.

“You can still register for Summer Seminar programs (and we hope that you will); however, during this time of uncertainty, we encourage you to wait to book flights and hotel accommodations until we are confident that the event will be held as scheduled,” reads a statement issued by the ANA in mid-March.

All Summer Seminar registration fees are refundable.

Both the ANA headquarters and Edward C. Rochette Money Museum are closed to the public until April 30 due to the COVID-19 outbreak; however, more than a dozen virtual exhibits are available on the museum’s website.

“We continue to closely monitor COVID-19 developments both locally and nationally and will keep you updated as we navigate this rapidly evolving situation.”

As of April 2, the United States has reported 245,442 COVID-19 cases and more than 6,000 deaths.
