London Coin Fair
The London Coin Fair has been held for more than 30 years in the London area and currently takes place three times a year. The convention is a gathering for coin, medal, token, and paper money collectors and dealers with an interest in items from the past. Hundreds of collectors packed the show area at the Holiday Inn near Bloomsbury to a sold out bourse of dealers trading in gold, silver, world coins and paper money and particularly numismatics of Great Britain. Virtually every dealer in attendance reported a successful convention. See and hear the market report from the dealers themselves as they share and show how business was and what items were trading.
