NBS Vice President Marc Ricard writes:
I have the following information from the ANA on the Numismatic Bibliomania society events in
Thursday, 8/9 NBS Symposium 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Room 106A-B
(I have not consulted with the rest of the Board on a speaker, but as soon as I know, I will send the information).
Thursday, 8/9 NBS Board Meeting 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. Room 107A
Friday, 8/10 NBS General Meeting and Auction 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Room 106AB
As always, this is from the ANA and could change by game time.
We should have a great turnout at the show.
Don't forget to submit your application if you'd like to exhibit numismatic literature at the show. I hope we have many such exhibits this year. There are many possible topics, and several could be tied in to the event's venue. How about exhibits relating to great Philadelphia collectors or dealers?
Literature of the U.S. Mint or the Mint Cabinet? Below is an excerpt from a press release about exhibits
sent by ANA Library & Communications Director RyAnne Scott.
Deadline for showing a Collector's Exhibit
at the World's Fair of Money is fast approaching
Applications are due July 6 to exhibit at the show Aug. 7-11
American Numismatic Association members are invited to showcase their collectibles, research and creativity at the World's Fair of Money in Philadelphia by creating a Collector Exhibit.
The show will be held Aug. 7-11 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The application deadline for
collector exhibits is Friday, July 6.
The Collector Exhibits, a highlight of every ANA show, bring together talented numismatic exhibitors and
stunning collections from across the nation. All areas of numismatics are represented, including U. S.
coins and paper money, ancient coins, tokens, medals and exonumia.
Exhibitors have the option to enter their displays in competitive (judged), non-competitive, or marquee
(invitational) categories. Competitive exhibits are judged on a variety of standards, including
educational value, presentation and degree of difficulty.
For a complete list of rules, a schedule of events for exhibitors, and an application form, please go to
and select "Collector Exhibits" from the right-hand menu.
