Museum Showcase in Sacramento

The American Numismatic Association’s 2011 Sacramento National Money Show features some of the world’s most valuable and historical coins and paper money, as well as educational opportunities for all ages and interests. The show takes place March 17-19 at the Sacramento Convention Center and includes a world-class auction by Heritage Auction Galleries and hundreds of dealers and vendors. COINage will be there, too.

The ANA Museum Showcase is an incredible display of numismatic rarities from the ANA’s Edward C. Rochette Money Museum and private collections. Exhibits include the Idler/Bebee Class III specimen 1804 dollar, dubbed “The King of U.S. Coins,” and the McDermott/Bebee specimen 1913 Liberty Head “V” nickel, one of five known.

The ANA will also offer Boy Scout Coin Collecting Merit Badge and Girl Scout “Fun with Money” Patch workshops on March 19. “Treasure Trivia” is available throughout the convention and is a fun way for children to explore the show, learn interesting facts and win prizes. The “Kids Zone” makes its debut in Sacramento and offers a variety of games and family activities.
