Convention Announces Cancellation of January Convention
The New York International Numismatic Convention Board of Directors, meeting
on September 23, sadly reached a decision to cancel the 49th annual edition of the
world and ancient specialty convention, which had been scheduled to be held at the
Grand Hyatt New York from January 8 through 17, 2021.

They continued, "Moreover, our board concluded as well that in light of the serious
threat of infection transmission that would have been faced by our participants,
cancellation was the only responsible decision we could have reached."
Foley added, "Moving forward, our 50th Annual New York International
Numismatic Convention is scheduled for the Grand Hyatt New York over the dates
January 7-16, 2022. I know that the NYINC occupies a special place on the overall
numismatic calendar and in the lives of our participants. Our 2021 bourse was

staff will look forward to seeing our many participants in 2022 for our 50th Annual
NYINC, when we'll once again have eight full days of auctions, as well as a world
and ancient specialty bourse where our attendees will be able to do business with
booth holders from around the world that they will not see at any other event in the
