Create a Collector's Exhibit at the National Money Show

American Numismatic Association members are invited to showcase their collectibles, research and creativity at the Spring National Money Show in Denver by creating a Collector Exhibit.

The show will be held May 10-12 at the Colorado Convention Center. The application deadline for collector exhibits is April 13.

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.

One award unique to the Spring National Money Show is the National Coin Week competition. The exhibit that best captures and publicizes the National Coin Week theme and proves suitable for installation in a public space will win a full scholarship to the ANA's Summer Seminar. The scholarship includes the price of tuition, airfare, lodging and meals. This year's theme for National Coin Week is "Change in Money: Cowries to Credit Cards."
