World's Fair of Money
Held annually by the American Numismatic Association (ANA), the World's Fair of Money stretches back in some form all the way to 1891 - when the group's first money fair was held. Today, the World's Fair of Money is perhaps the second largest Numismatic event in the world, outside the World Money Fair in Berlin every February.
In 2019, the ANA holds the massive show bourse in Chicago from the 13th of August through to the 18th, and the global numismatic industry descends on the city in a frenzy of buying, selling, meetings, and yes... there is some fun to be had.
Personally, I've been lucky enough to attend several ANA Fairs over the past 15 years and will again be there at the Fair in 2019. Whilst this means that order despatch will be placed on hold, it also means that when I return on the 20th, I should have some special new coins to show everyone!
