The American Numismatic Association is inviting members to showcase their collections and expertise by displaying a numismatic exhibit at the Portland National Money Show, scheduled for March 13-15.
Exhibitors have the option to enter their displays in competitive (judged, with six open divisions), non-competitive or marquee categories. Competitive exhibits are judged on a variety of standards, including creativity, presentation and degree of difficulty. A special “Oregon at 150” award will be presented in honor of the host state’s 150th year of statehood.
The Collector Gallery brings together numismatists and collections from around the world. All areas of numismatics are represented, among them U.S. coins and paper money, ancient and medieval coins, and tokens and medals.
