Sunday - Last of the World Money Fair for 2009

Final Day at Berlin Wolrd Money Fair 2009


It's Sunday and at an average U.S. coin show that would mean little business, lots of early departures, a bit of dealer to dealer business and quiet times. At the World Money Fair, this is not the case at all. The Fair was, perhaps even a bit busier today that it was on Saturday. Lots of people shopping, plenty of money changing hands and still plenty of Mint officials to visit with.

The MDM booth offered a show special of all five German Mint commemorative Saarland 2 Euros for 10 Euro - face value. Packaged Mint sets for the most recent EU country - Slovakia was selling at rapid pace. The Royal Canadian Mint had folks striking up their own special World Money Fair medals with a pair of dies and a hammer. I struck two so I could bring one back to Iola for friend and fellow blogger George Cuhaj.

Yes, the day was hopping and business seemed good. It was a real pleasure to see that on a Sunday at a coin show.
