The Hong Kong Coin Show takes place March 29-31, 2019. A number of seminars and educational events are scheduled. Here is some information from the press release. -Editor
Seminars and exhibitions made their debut in the 4th Hong Kong Coin Show as a way to educate the public and nurture the next generation of numismatic enthusiasts. Participants were able to learn about the latest trends in the hobby as well as increase knowledge in specific areas. Always striving to improve, in the upcoming Coin Show, workshops will be limited to no more than five attendees, allowing participants to have easy communication with the professionals and to maintain a relaxing atmosphere.
Added to this year's show will be guided tours geared to university students, with the goal of increasing interest in numismatics in a younger generation. The tours will be held on the afternoon of the second day, 30 March 2019. They will focus on the fundamentals of the numismatic industry and the historical aspects of coins and banknotes. Some of the exhibitors will work with HKCS to introduce their collections to the students.
Twice each year, active coin dealers and collectors converge on the 18th Floor of The Mira Hotel in Hong Kong for an exciting numismatic event. The biannual Hong Kong Coin Show (HKCS) takes place in March/April and August and features not only buying and selling but also seminars, workshops, exhibitions, and a guided tour for university students. This well-attended event is organized by four partners: Stack's Bowers and Ponterio Co. Ltd., Spink & Sons Ltd., Shouxi.com and Coin-In-Coin, who are leading companies in their respective fields. The HKCS is regarded as the top numismatic show in Asia.
The 6th show takes place March 29-31, 2019.
Since its inaugural show in August 2016, HKCS has grown to include over 100 top numismatic organizations and individuals from over 45 countries and regions. The three-day show attracts over 5,000 visitors, providing a solid client base for trade and exchange of ideas. The HKCS helps to make Hong Kong a world-class numismatic hub for auctions and coin shows. The show sets the standard as Hong Kong moves forward as a world-class coin center and an enhancement to numismatic globalization.

Here's some additional information about the auction from a Stack's Bowers mailing. -Editor
Hosted in conjunction with the Hong Kong Coin Show (HKCS), Stack's Bowers and Ponterio is pleased to present the Spring Hong Kong Coin and Paper Money auction. Destined to be a memorable event, the auction consists of over 3200 Asia-centric lots with items ranging from seldom-seen rarities to more available collector issues.
Within the Paper Money sessions, one of the most exciting offerings is a Chinese 2 Yuan Proof note (lot 50176) from 1975 that was never issued for circulated. Featured prominently in the art that graces the catalog cover, this extreme rarity is destined for an advanced collection of People's Republic of China issues. On the coin side, the unquestioned top lot is a stunning Thailand bullet money set of Rama V (lot 62386) that was originally presented to attendees of his birthday ceremony in 1880. Of those issued, only three intact sets are known today, making it the pinnacle of Thai numismatics.
