The Las Vegas Numismatic Society 51st annual coin show is set for April 4-6 at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.


Last year’s annual show drew 300 dealers and over 3,000 visitors, nearly doubling attendance the previous year.

The silver dollar seminar line-up extends an opportunity to learn from silver dollar experts and authors. Meet John Highfill, author of Comprehensive US Silver Dollar Encyclopedia; C. Logan McKechnie, author of VAMView Annual Price Guide; Jeff Oxman, author of Carson City Morgan Dollars: Coins of the GSA Hoard and Mark Witkower, author of Official Guide to the 1878 Reverse of ‘79 Varieties. Seminar is set for Saturday, April 5, at 12:15 p.m. Seating is limited.

Highfill founded the National Silver Dollar Roundtable and has been a silver dollar specialist for over 40 years. McKechnie added over 200 silver dollar varieties and revisions to the VAM list. Oxman co-authored the Top 100 Morgan Dollar Varieties and authored four other standard reference works.

The promoter, CK Shows has announced the addition of a third show in Las Vegas, called The Vegas Show. This new show will take place Dec. 12-14 in a new venue, The Riviera Hotel and Casino, in association with the Las Vegas Numismatic Association. Both Las Vegas club shows will be coming to the historic Riviera in 2015, as well.

“We are very excited about the new location,” said Dawn Napolitan of CK Shows.

To celebrate the new partnership, the Riviera is offering us room rates from $25. Visitors and dealers may call reservations at 800-634-6753 to take advantage of this limited room block. Use code SLVNSI4.

The 2014 Fall show will be held Sept. 12-14 at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino.

ANACS will accept submissions onsite at the April show all three days. A Boy Scout merit badge workshop and young numismatist program are offered.
