The following is a release from the Raleigh Coin Club:
The 2015 Raleigh Money Expo, presented by the Raleigh Coin Club (Raleigh, NC), will take place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 26-28, in the Exposition Center at the NC State Fairgrounds in Raleigh. It is the largest money show in the Carolina and each year draws collectors from throughout the Southeast and beyond.
The show’s bourse will feature over 160 dealer tables offering a full range of U.S. and world coins and currency, along with a large variety of tokens, medals, collecting supplies and new and collectible books. A special section devoted to U.S. and world stamps, covers and postal stationery will also be featured. The show will also include a “Club Zone” that will feature representatives from local clubs as well as regional organizations such as the Barber Coin Collectors’ Society, the International Bank Note Society, the Liberty Seated Collectors Club and the Society of Paper Money Collectors.
“The Raleigh Coin Club has worked very hard to grow and enhance the Raleigh Money Expo and we believe it truly offers something for every level of collector,” stated Dave Provost, the show’s bourse chair. “We are fortunate to be supported by a diverse group of dealers from across the eastern US, and offer outstanding educational opportunities for attendees through our seminars, exhibits and special attractions. The show is much more than ‘just a bourse.’ And with our ever-expanding program for young collectors, the Expo becomes a great family event that can be enjoyed by all ages.”
The Expo will feature several special attractions for attendees. North Carolina’s historic Reed Gold Mine, the site of the first documented gold find in the United States, will be on hand with its “Panning for Gold” interactive exhibit. Show attendees will have the opportunity to test their panning skills and take home a souvenir of genuine North Carolina gold.
Also being presented is a special appearance of the “Art of North Carolina Money” exhibit first presented by the North Carolina Gallery at UNC-Chapel Hill. It’s a wonderful exploration of the vignettes and designs featured on North Carolina related paper money, coins and medals.
ANACS, the oldest coin grading service in the U.S., will be on site to accept grading submissions. ANACS will be offering special show pricing on submissions.
The show will feature a full schedule of educational talks on Friday and Saturday, with a theme of “Counterfeits and Copies: An Exploration of Un-official Coinage and Notes.” The schedule follows:
