Later this week, on Nov. 24-26, the 62nd Annual Fall Convention and Show hosted by the Michigan State Numismatic Society (MSNS) at the Macomb Community College Expo Center’s south campus in Warren, Mi. For a list of dealers at this year’s show, click here.

Among the show’s highlights will be a presentation by Clifford Mishler, former CCN consultant, entitled “State of the Hobby.” The presentation will be held on Saturday from 3 p.m.-4 p.m.

Mishler is a former CEO of Krause Publications, a prominent publishing firm founded by Chet Krause, who also founded CCN. He has authored several standard references throughout his extensive career. His most recent book—released by Whitman Publishing and currently in its fifth edition—is entitled Coins: Questions & Answers.

He’s also a former MSNS board member, president and life member and will give his presentation on decades of experiences backed by a wealth of knowledge and first hand involvement related to the coin hobby today and in the past.

Mishler was introduced to the world of coins in 1950 at age of 10. Since then, he has been an author, editor and publisher as well as a corporate manager and consultant. He has worked closely and hand-in-hand with numerous hobby giants. He has been a life member of ANA for more than 60 years, served on the ANA board, and eventually becoming president. He is the recipient of numerous awards and honours, both nationally and internationally. He has spoken to U.S. Congress on matters related to numismatics and served on various government related committees.

Mishler was a founding member of the Tokens and Medals Society (TAMS).

“His experiences are of a life time and will capture the minds, memories and imaginations of all those that attend,” reads the MSNS website.

In 2014, Mishler—a long-time friend and supporter of the Canadian numismatic community—was recognized by the Royal Canadian Numismatic Association (RCNA) for promoting the hobby in both the U.S. and Canada.

“Clifford has been very interested in promoting numismatics across North America for as long as I have known him,” said then-RCNA President Bret Evans. “Clifford has also been keenly interested in numismatics here being a frequent visitor to RCNA conventions in all parts of Canada.”


Rounding out the week in shows is the Coin, Stamp and Collectibles Show hosted by the North Shore Numismatic Society at the Nikkei Centre on 6688 Southoaks Cres. in Burnaby, B.C. The show will be open from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., and the bourse will include 40 tables of coins, stamps, banknotes, tokens, medals, postcards, art, pins and more. Free underground parking is available on site. Admission is $2 (children under 16 are free if accompanied by an adult).
