Mark Your Calendar for the 2018 Irving National Money Show

It’s not too early to make plans for Texas and the American Numismatic Association’s (ANA) 2018 National Money Show in Irving. The convention takes place Mar. 8-10 in Exhibit Hall A of the Irving Convention Center located at 500 West Las Colinas Boulevard, a stone’s throw from Dallas.

The three-day show offers access to hundreds of dealers; a live auction by Kagin’s; a wide range of technical seminars and educational presentations; spectacular exhibits; and the best numismatic inventory available. Many coin dealers in attendance will provide free, informal evaluations of the public’s old coins and paper money.

Among the special displays of extraordinary items from the ANA’s Money Museum is the famous 1913 Liberty Head nickel. One of only five known to exist, the specimen is valued in excess of $3 million. Also on display is the “The King of U.S. Coins,” an extremely rare 1804 Draped Bust U.S. silver dollar insured for $4 million.

Irving’s close proximity to Dallas and Fort Worth makes it a collector’s gateway to everything “The Lone Star State” has to offer. Plus, the recently opened Toyota Music Factory adjacent to the Irving Convention Center offers show attendees dozens of unique restaurant, shopping and entertainment options.

Show hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, Mar. 8 and 9; and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.on Saturday, Mar. 10. ANA members can enter the show 30 minutes before the public. Admission is $8 for adults; ANA members and children 12 and under are always free. Last admission is 30 minutes prior to closing. Admission is free on Saturday, Mar. 10
