View Millions of Rare Coins and Numismatic Treasures

The American Numismatic Association's National Money Show, held March 14-16, 2024, at the Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs, features must-see exhibitions, educational sessions, kids activities, auctions, specialist organization meetings, and a large bourse floor.

Check out the “short snorter” display. This 64-foot display comprises WWII-era bank notes signed by dignitaries. More than 1,300 signatures will be displayed by the non-profit Short Snorter Project. This exhibit includes signatures from Air Force Major General Clayton Lawrence Bissell (1893-1972)'s short snorter collection, seen on Pawn Stars, according to Short Snorter Project creator Tom Sparks.

The Bissell Collection has 294 World War II admirals and generals, 17 presidents and prime ministers, and 37 ambassadors autographs. Sparks added that Presidents Herber Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and General Dwight D. Eisenhower signed it. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill signed. The Broadmoor Resort's Bartolin Hall houses the entire show.

Visit the Museum Showcase to see some of the world's most beautiful and precious coins and bank notes. The Broadmoor's Bartolin Hall houses the exhibit. All are welcome to view Edward C. Rochette Money Museum artifacts. F.C.C. Boy and James Macallister donated the 1933 eagle to the ANA over 80 years ago, and it will be displayed for the first time in many years

Fewer than 40 of 312,500 created exist today. Also on display are 1796 and 1797 dimes, late 1790s huge cents, and the 1943 Lincoln cent made of bronze alloy instead of zinc-coated steel, which sold for over $1 million. A collection of defunct Bank of the United States notes, including checks signed by President Andrew Jackson and General Winfield Scott, will debut at the National Money Show.

Youth participation in the hobby is ANA priority. Two opportunities await young collectors at the event. Experienced numismatists will teach young collectors about the hobby at the Young Collector Corner on Saturday from 9 to 11 a.m. Wear your uniform and get your Coin Collecting merit badge or Fun with Money patch, scouts.

Ernie's Treasure Treehouse looks fun for kids. Visit Table 468 to learn about collecting while playing arcade games and earning tokens for prizes. Family trivia will offer extra loot and treasure.

Some of the hobby's experts host these 30-to-45-minute talks on collector-relevant topics. Douglas Mudd of the ANA will lead a tour of the new Americana gallery and Edward C. Rochette Money Museum. Sam Gelbert, the ANA's numismatic educator, will teach all ages Coin Collecting Basics. More than 12 sessions are available.

The ANA is presenting small classes, restricted to 25 registrants per event, on Tuesday, March 12, and Wednesday, March 13, before the show opens, giving numismatists a chance to network and learn more about vital topics. This year, we'll discuss U.S. coin counterfeit detection with a focus on Chinese-made fakes and grading fundamentals. The counterfeit detection class was still open, but the grading seminar is full.
