Club business thrives at shows

As the numismatic community returns to in-person shows with the lifting of pandemic restrictions, club officials are eager to reconnect with collectors in a face-to-face setting.

“The Trajan show seemed to be very well organized, and the setup and location provided more opportunities to promote one’s club and activities and for others to sell bourse tables at their upcoming show or convention,” said collector and club official Peter Becker, of Kitchener, Ont., who attended the recent National Postage Stamp & Coin Show in Mississauga, Ont.

“The variety of material and quality was nice to see once you managed to find room at a dealer’s table.” Becker, who serves as the secretary of the Waterloo Coin Society and the newly formed Ontario chapter of the International Bank Note Society, said in-person shows are “also important for me to interact with collectors who are not actively participating on Zoom calls. I look forward to attending future events that are within an hour or so drive from home, mindful of the fuel and parking costs.”
