Each spring, in April, The BNA hosts the largest coin show in Upstate New York: The Gold and Silver Expo. This three day event is filled with fun and activities for everyone. There is food, prizes, youth activities, and a Coin Collecting Merit Badge Clinic for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. The Gold and Silver Expo is conveniently located in Hamburg, New York (close to Buffalo) at the Erie County Fairgrounds. All facilities at The Gold and Silver Expo are handicap accessible and the general public is welcome to attend.
The Gold and Silver Expo has more than 100 tables and attracts over fifty dealers from across the north-eastern United States. Most are coin dealers, but some also deal in stamps and paper currency. Come by yourself or bring the family. The Gold and Silver Expo will have something for everyone!
