Coin shows, essential to our collecting community

Collectors, dealers, and appraisers of rare coins are all over the world — and, in some areas, thin on the ground. Our mintage, you could say, is low! And while the internet makes it possible to create collecting communities online, some of the best opportunities to:

• assess a larger number of high-quality coins first hand,
• create trusted trading relationships, and
• find highly motivated community members

— happen at conferences and trade shows. These include the Long Beach Expo, New York Expo, New Orleans Investment Conference, and StockPulse Silver Symposium, to name a few. In fact, the health of our collecting communities (and sometimes, our investments) depend on them.

This isn’t just because showing up in person removes the degrees of separation between you, your coins, and other dealers and collectors. It also removes the filters and façades that can make it hard to assess whether a seller or buyer is reputable online. Judging the conditions of available coins becomes easier, too.

If you’re unable to visit a conference, we suggest getting a reputable team of experts to find, assess, and sell your coins for you (👋 hi, there). But if you can attend, we highly recommend it! There’s plenty to learn, and even more experts and enthusiasts to meet.

In the meantime, here are some updates from a couple of recent events you might have missed:

The 2023 New Orleans Investment Conference

We were proud sponsors!
