The Raleigh Coin Club (Raleigh, NC) is set to present its 2014 Raleigh Money Expo™on
Friday, Saturday and Sunday July 18, 19 and 20 in the Exposition Center at the NC State
Fairgrounds. 2014 marks the 41st year the RCC has sponsored the state’s largest coin, currency and stamp show.
The show’s bourse will feature 150 dealer tables offering a wide selection of US and World coins and currency, along with a large variety of tokens, medals, collecting supplies and new and collectible books. A special section devoted to US and World stamps, covers and postal stationery will also be featured.
“We believe the Raleigh Money Expo™is the premier numismatic event in the Carolinas”
stated Paul Landsberg, the show’s bourse chair. “We offer an outstanding selection of dealers forcollectors of all levels, and provide wonderful educational opportunities for attendees through our seminars, exhibits and special attractions. Add in our activities for young collectors and the Expo becomes a show that offers something for everyone.”
The Expo will feature several special attractions for attendees. North Carolina’s historic Reed Gold Mine, the site of the first documented gold find in the United States, will be on hand with its “Panning for Gold” interactive exhibit. Show attendees will have the opportunity to test their panning skills and take home a souvenir of genuine North Carolina gold.
The Bechtler House Museum will be in attendance with informative displays about America’s first gold rush, the private gold coinage of the Bechtlers and the historic North Carolina Gold Trail. The Bechtlers produced the first gold dollar in the United States in 1831 – 18 years before the US Mint – and their story remains a cornerstone of North Carolina’s gold history.
ANACS, the oldest coin grading service in the US, will be on-site to accept grading submissions. ANACS will be offering special show pricing on submissions.
