Maastricht Paper Money Fair
David Lisot, host and producer of CoinWeek video news service, during a recent trip to Europe attended the Maastricht Paper Money Fair held in Valkenburg Netherlands.
Collecting paper money is a worldwide phenomenon that is popular in most parts of the globe. The Paper Money Fair in Valkenburg has been taking place for 25 years and attracts bank note and paper dealers from all over Europe and the world.
David interviewed many of the participants at the show finding out what collectors have in common with their counterparts in the United States. He addressed the economic situation in Europe and whether the hobby has been affected by the downturn in the workplace and the debt crisis affecting so many countries. He also shows examples of the some of the more popular bank notes collectors are buying.
