2012 World’s Fair of Money Medal

By the time you read this I would have kissed my wife and four-legged babies good bye and should be on my way to Philadelphia for the American Numismatic Association’s World’s Fair of Money, the world’s largest coin show. This is the last year the show will be within driving distance for me before spending the next few years in Chicago.

While I do plan a few trips around the bourse floor, visit the exhibits, try to attend some of the Money Talks (formerly Numismatic Theater) session, and get a Rosie dollar autographed by Treasurer of the United States Rosie Rios, a good bit of the time you can find me either at the table for the Maryland State Numismatic Association (1159) or at the Gold and Silver Political Action Committee table (1155). I will be at the MSNA table Wednesday afternoon.

If you cannot make it to Philadelphia, you can follow me on Twitter (@coinsblog) and see what images I capture and pin to Pinterest. On Pinterest, I created a board for my images from the show. If I am not worn out, I will try to write about what I find here on the blog.

Whether you visit with me in Philadelphia (“On the whole, I would rather be in Philadelphia,” once quipped W.C. Fields) or follow online, it should be a fun week!

Stay tuned!
