Complimentary admission coupons for collectors and other members of the public are now available for the Aug. 2 to 4 show at the Donald E.

A promotion is in place that will give away a U.S. gold $20 double eagle to one visitor each day of the show.
An ANA release pegs the value of the giveaway coins at more than $1,300.

"The PNG-ANA Numismatic Trade Show will be open to the public to buy and sell," PNG executive director Robert Brueggeman said. "This show is being produced by the same experienced team that successfully organized PNG Day shows across the country for two decades.”
