I wasn't aware of this conference. The next one will take place in St. Petersburg, Russia. Sounds like an interesting place to mingle and learn about the latest coining technology.
On June 9-10, the Second European conference on commemorative coins COINS-2010 will be held in St. Petersburg. Among the participants the mints of Russia, Great Britain, Canada, Austria, Hong Kong, Spain and other countries.
At the conference in St. Petersburg the experts will discuss the latest technologies in coinage, main trends in coin design, coins marketing and advertising, the current situation in numismatics and equipment for coins production.
"All over the world numismatists appreciate the original design and high quality of minting," Presnyakov says. "Last year we had a coin from Lichtenstein. It was a triangle coin of excellent quality. There are also coins with diamond inlaid work and some coins contain colorful inlays. For the production of such coins the latest technologies in coinage are used."
He continues: "In Russia the Central Bank is the issuer of commemorative coins. On the bank's website numismatist can learn what commemorative coins are to be issued during the year. In Russia the market of coins is regulated otherwise than in Europe. It is easy to bring coins from abroad but it is difficult to take them out of the country.
That is why, there are less numismatists in Russia than in Germany, for example. Our conference will give an opportunity to the numismatists to get familiar with the wide range of modern foreign coins and to buy some of them. At the same time foreign coin sellers will be able to learn about the preferences of Russian numismatists."
