The Georgia Numismatic Association will hold its 50th convention, at the Northwest Georgia Trade & Convention Center in Dalton from April 11 to 13.  Many special events are planned by the GNA to celebrate the anniversary convention, according to the GNA.

GNA bills the convention as the largest coin show in Georgia.
