The expo is open on Friday and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Admission to the expo is free as is parking at the Fairgrounds.
“The Raleigh Money Expo™ has grown to be an important event on the numismatic calendar for collectors across the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast regions,” stated Dave Provost, the show’s bourse chair. “The show has continued to grow in a tough economic climate thanks to the outstanding support of our dealers and by a collecting public that has recognized that it’s definitely worth making the trip to attend our show.”
The Expo is a “Convention-style” event with an impressive variety of educational opportunities for attendees in addition to its bourse. Seminars, exhibits and special attractions are available throughout the weekend. The show also features educational activities for young collectors in its “Kid’s Zone.” The Expo has become a great family event that can be enjoyed by all ages.
The show will feature a full schedule of educational talks on Friday and Saturday, with Saturday’s theme being “Exploring US Coinage Designs.” Roger W. Burdette, acclaimed numismatic researcher and award-winning author (including the three-volume Renaissance of American Coinage series) will be presenting two sessions on Saturday. In the first, Burdette will examine and discuss the artist’s concepts for the 1916 dime, quarter and half dollar, along with their modern exposition on the U.S. Mint’s 2016 gold pieces. In the second session, Burdette will explore the inner workings of the U.S. Mint and lead a free-form Q&A session with the audience.
