Santa Clara expo closes

The Nov. 18-20 Santa Clara, Calif., Coin, Stamp & Collectibles Expo was the last one. Future spring and fall shows have been canceled.

“The coin show business has changed quite a bit in the past decade and the smaller regional shows face significant financial challenges. We have decided to stop our involvement with the Santa Clara show and concentrate our efforts on the larger Long Beach shows,” said David Hall, president of Collectors Universe, which owns both events.

“We had a wonderful run bringing together collectors, dealers and the general public. I appreciated the huge support from the San Jose and Cupertino Coin Clubs and I have many great memories of visitors from around the world as well as from Silicon Valley and the Bay area,” said Ronald J. Gillio, expo general chairman.

“We were unsuccessful in finding a buyer to take over the shows. Many of the local dealers I’ve already spoken with about the upcoming closing are disappointed because they told me they always did good business at the Santa Clara Expo,” he said.

Gillio has been involved with the Santa Clara shows since he bought them in 2002 from Rudy Christians. He in turn sold the events to Collectors Universe in 2006.
