Members of the American Numismatic Association are invited to showcase their collections, research and creativity with fellow hobbyists by presenting an exhibit at the 2009 World’s Fair of Money®, August 5-9 in Los Angeles.
The Collector Gallery brings together talented numismatic exhibitors and unique collections from across the country. All areas of numismatics are represented, including U. S. coins and paper money, ancient coins, tokens and medals, and other topics from around the world.
Exhibitors have the option to enter their displays in competitive (judged), non-competitive, or marquee (invitational) categories. Competitive exhibits are judged on a variety of standards, including educational value, presentation, and degree of difficulty. Awards are given in 19 regular categories and seven Young Numismatist categories; several special awards are also presented.
