The American Numismatic Association invites members to share their knowledge with fellow collectors by creating and delivering a Numismatic Theatre presentation during the Baltimore World’s Fair of Money®.

ANAAll American Numismatic Association members are invited to share their expertise and imagination with fellow hobbyists by delivering a Numismatic Theatre presentation at the Baltimore World’s Fair of Money, July 30 to Aug. 3.

Numismatic Theatre consists of presentations on a wide variety of topics. It’s a wonderful opportunity for collectors to communicate their ideas and research with the numismatic community. The talks are an educational highlight of every ANA convention, and often focus on a wide range of topics including themes pertaining to a convention’s host city.

Presentations from previous ANA conventions range from:

  • "Famous Numismatists of the Past and Present: Focus on Baltimore," and
  • "The Panic & Depression of 1837-41: Baltimore’s Shinplaster Bank," to
  • "A Numismatic Look at Colonial Annapolis," and
  • "The Medallic Art of Baltimore Sculptors Hans Schuler & Hans C. Schuler."
