The American Numismatic Association is inviting its members to showcase their collections and expertise by displaying a numismatic exhibit at the 2009 Portland National Money Show™, 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 talented numismatists and exceptional collections from around the world. All areas of numismatics are represented, including United States coins and paper money, ancient and medieval coins, tokens and medals, and other topics from across the globe.
