American Numismatic Association members are invited to share their knowledge, ideas and creativity with fellow collectors by delivering a Numismatic Theatre presentation at the 2010 National Money Show™, March 25-27 at the Fort Worth Convention Center.
Numismatic Theatre consists of 30-40 minute presentations on a wide variety of topics. It’s a great opportunity for hobbyists to share their research with the numismatic community. Speakers will be provided with audio/visual equipment. These educational talks are a highlight of all ANA conventions and cover all areas of numismatics, including several presentations pertaining to a convention’s host city or state.
Presentations from previous ANA conventions include "California’s Gold Rush Era Money," "The Money of the 300: Coinage of the Persian Wars," "Queen Victoria’s Numismatic Family Tree," and "Getting Kids Involved in Coin Collecting."
