Got questions? Rod has answers


Getting into the hobby can be overwhelming. Numismatics is a rich hobby, but it also comes with a multitude of potential interests, a unique terminology and plenty of other questions. Where do you go to get these questions answered?


Fortunately, Rod Gillis is here to help. The ANA's numismatic educator will hold six sessions of Coin Collecting 101 at the World's Fair of Money Show. Rod will introduce attendees to the basics of collecting and answer the questions you have about getting started in the hobby. Best of all, these sessions are free with your paid admission.
