The American Numismatic Association (ANA) drew more than 4,300 people to its 2023 National Money Show this March in Phoenix, Ariz.
The bourse boasted more than 480 dealers across nearly 220 tables plus a range of numismatic presentations an online auction by Classical Numismatic Group and an exhibit display.
“Attendance exceeded our expectations,” said ANA Executive Director Kim Kiick about the March 2-4 show. “Remarkably, nearly 1,900 non-members attended the show, which far surpassed the number of ANA members in Arizona.”
Following a massive theft at last fall’s ANA World’s Fair of Money, the association boosted its security for the show this March.
“Thanks to increased security measures, the association was able to offer a secure environment for our attendees to pursue their favourite hobby,” ANA Events Director Jennifer Ackerman said.
At last fall’s show, thieves stole a display case filled with Rolex watches and coins worth an estimated $500,000 US (about $655,000 Cdn.).
