The theme of the American Numismatic Association's National Coin
Week next spring will honor some of the world’s most important get-togethers.
“Building Tomorrows: Inspiration and Innovation at World’s
Fairs” will celebrate the world’s fairs and expositions that are
remembered as the places where some of humankind’s most
important achievements in science, architecture and social progress
were put on display.
The 2015 theme, which was suggested by ANA member Esther Leising,
coincides with the 100th anniversary of the 1915 Panama-Pacific
International Exposition in San Francisco. (A show that was celebrated
with its own commemorative coins, including a gold $50 coin.)
The ANA puts on National Coin Week each year during the third week
of April. The 2015 celebration will take place April 19 to April 25.
The 2014 theme was "Coin & Country: Celebrating Civic Service."
For submitting the selected theme for 2015, Leising will receive a
Proof 2014 Civil Rights Act of 1964 commemorative silver dollar.
