54th annual Texas Numismatic Association Convention Coin and Currency Show
Fort Worth, Texas
The 54th annual Texas Numismatic Association Convention Coin and Currency Show was held in Fort Worth, Texas at the Will Rogers Memorial Center.
TNA was founded in 1960 and is the largest coin club in the state. Each year they sponsor a coin convention that brings collectors and dealers from all over the country to buy, sell, and trade.
This year’s convention was one of the largest in recent times featuring more than 150 dealer booths. Activities included an auction by Spink, Boy Scout activities, educational lectures, coin and paper money exhibits, an auction for kids, and an opportunity for young people to learn how to buy and sell coins.
We will have interviews with several of the show participants and well as a “Cool Coin” segment being featured on CoinWeek.
