The American Numismatic Association has selected its Official Auctioneers for the 2018-2019 World’s Fair of Money and the 2018-2021 National Money Show. Three prominent numismatic auction companies – Heritage Auctions, Stack’s Bowers Galleries and Kagin’s Auctions – were selected as Official Auctioneers.
Heritage Auctions and Stack’s Bowers Galleries will continue to provide auction services for the World’s Fair of Money in the years 2018 and 2019—on the heels of completing a four-year run conducting successful auctions for the annual ANA convention.
Kagin’s Auctions was selected as the auction services provider for the National Money Show from 2018 through 2021.
“ANA members and show attendees will be able to consign to and purchase from three auction companies that have a successful history with the ANA,” said ANA Executive Director Kimberly Kiick. “All three auction houses have been long-standing supporters of our educational mission, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have them return as the Official Auctioneers for our shows.”
Stack’s Bowers Galleries and Heritage Auctions each will conduct separate auctions for the next two World’s Fair of Money Official Auctions. The 2018 show will be held Aug. 14-18 in Philadelphia; the 2019 show will return to the Chicago suburb of Rosemont, Ill., Aug. 6-10.
Kagin’s Auctions was the Official Auctioneer of the 2017 National Money Show in Orlando and will conduct the next four National Money Show auctions: Mar. 8-10, 2018 in Irving, Tex.; Mar. 28-30, 2019 in Pittsburg; Feb. 27-29, 2020 in Atlanta; and at a location yet to be determined in 2021.
The World’s Fair of Money and the National Money Show are two of the nation’s premier numismatic events, featuring the most expansive educational programs and the best numismatic inventory available anywhere. The shows feature hundreds of numismatic dealers; live auctions conducted by preeminent auction firms; the ANA’s signature Museum Showcase, exhibiting some of the world’s most valuable and beautiful coins and paper money; collector exhibits; as well as educational presentations, seminars and social events.
The American Numismatic Association is a congressionally chartered, nonprofit educational organization dedicated to encouraging the study and collection of coins and related items. The ANA helps its 25,000 members and the public discover and explore the world of money through its array of instructional and outreach programs, as well as its museum, library, publications and conventions.
