The Maryland State Numismatic Association coordinated and completed a day trip to the American Numismatic Association convention at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia on Friday, Aug. 17.
A rented passenger van filled with Maryland coin club members who signed up for the ANA trip left several pickup points in Montgomery County and Baltimore County early Friday and returned Friday evening.
The following MSNA coin clubs participated and were represented for the day trip: Bowie Coin Club, Carroll County Coin Club, Catonsville Coin Club, Chesapeake Coin Club, Montgomery County Coin Club, and the Washington Numismatic Society.
Riders enjoyed a full day of numismatic fellowship discussing type coins, mintmarks, and a wide variety of other hobby topics while transiting up and back – and enjoyed the low-cost opportunity to visit and shop the ANA convention bourse or attend the variety of speaker and subject talks offered at the convention meeting rooms.
The organization is already planning events for next year. It will sponsor an exhibit competition at the Whitman Baltimore Coin and Collectibles Expo on Feb. 28 – March 3, 2019, at the Baltimore Convention Center. Anyone wishing to place an exhibit in this competition may contact Exhibits Chairman Bryce Doxzon at firstname.lastname@example.org for exhibit rules and an application.
