The Week in Shows (July 30-Aug. 5)

Later this week, from Aug. 1-5, the American Numismatic Association (ANA) will host the 2017 World’s Fair of Money—the biggest money show in the U.S.—at the Colorado Convention Centre in Denver.

The show will be open from 1 p.m.-6 p.m. on Aug. 1; from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Aug. 2-4; and from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Aug. 5, the shows final day, when admission is free. Throughout the week, admission is $8 for the general public but free for ANA members and children under the age of 12.

“I am delighted to welcome you to the American Numismatic Association’s 126th Anniversary Convention in Denver, Colo.,” said ANA President Jeff Garrett, who added this year’s show marks the fifth time the ANA has gathered in Denver.

“Collectors and dealers from around the globe have come here to conduct business and take advantage of the many educational offerings. Dozens of specialty clubs hold open meetings and present informative programs. The main draw is the incredible bourse, featuring nearly 500 booths. Nowhere else can you find such a huge selection of numismatic material in one place.”


Among the Canadian dealers slated to attend this year’s World’s Fair of Money are:

“Near the bourse floor,” Garrett said, “collectors can view scores of competitive world-class exhibits assembled by numismatic experts and knowledgable collectors. The displays always are interesting and a true measure of our members’ dedication and the hobby’s attraction.”


Heritage Auctions and Stack’s Bowers Galleries will also be hosting a series of sales throughout the week-long World’s Fair of Money.

“Many of the prices realized are sure to be record-breakers,” said Garrett.

On Aug. 6, the ANA will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of its home and headquarters with an open house in Colorado Springs from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
