The American Numismatic Association’s annual World’s Fair of Money will now feature two official auctions rather than one.
Heritage Auctions and Stack’s Bower’s Galleries will be official auctioneers for the convention for the next four years, 2014-2017.
“ANA members and show attendees will be able to consign to and purchase from two auction companies that have a long and successful history with the ANA,” said ANA Executive Director Kimberly Kiick.
“Both of these wonderful auction houses have been big supporters of our educational mission for many, many years, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have both as the Official Auctioneers,” Kiick said.
Stack’s Bowers Galleries and Heritage Auctions will both conduct separate auctions for the next four World’s Fair of Money Official Auctions. The 2014 and 2015 shows will be held in the Chicago suburb of Rosemont, Ill., before shifting to Anaheim, Calif., in 2016. The 2017 World’s Fair of Money will be in held in Denver, Colo.
“The World’s Fair of Money has always been one of our favorite events to be a part of,” said Steve Ivy, co-founder and CEO of Heritage Auctions. “Working with the ANA and its members, we look forward to the auction in Chicago and in putting together what is always one of the high points of our year.”
Brian Kendrella, president of Stack’s Bowers Galleries, commented “We are delighted to once again have the opportunity to work with the ANA as an Official Auctioneer for the World’s Fair of Money, one of the most dynamic shows of the year. We look forward to presenting an auction that will be truly memorable in keeping with our long tradition of success with the ANA. Consignments already received guarantee that 2014 in Chicago will be a record-setting event.”
