The American Numismatic Association Road Show will make its next stay at the Georgia Numismatic Association Coin Show 49th Coin & Currency Show, from April 19-21 at the Northwest Georgia Trade & Convention Center in Dalton, Ga. Enjoy a great coin collecting experience and learn more about your hobby while potentially improving your personal finances.
The ANA Road Show presents to its members as well as coins and money collectors around the country the good fortune to see some of the most eminent items from the ANA’s Edward C. Rochette Money Museum and the Dwight N. Manley Numismatic Library’s Mobile Archives. Coin collectors can also make an appearance at the ANA Money Talks presentations and learn more about ANA educational programs.
Coin shows are a good place to ask dealers buying questions. Most coin dealers subscribe to the Coin dealer newsletter the greysheet publication which reveals coin trends. Certain industry trends anticipate appreciation of value of a particular type of coin.
Ask a coin dealer which coins they foresee as investment grade coins to buy for your coin collection. As the US Government expands the money supply causing inflationary times the acquisition of gold and silver bullion makes sense as a hedge against inflation, and for a better personal financial position.
In a press release dated March 6, 2013 the ANA Executive Director Jeff Shevlin said,” As this lineup of exhibits and talks demonstrates, the ANA Road Show is a major outreach effort to let collectors around the country experience some of the ANA’s coolest items and learn more about educational programs the ANA offers to collectors,”

Paper Currency in Georgia
Paper currency began in 1735 in Georgia with the British pound sterling standard, shortly following the founding of the colony in 1732 by James Oglethorpe.
This exhibit displays the attractive creation of Georgia paper currency from the Revolution through the private banking era, the Civil War, the National Bank period to the modern Federal Reserve notes issued by the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.

The ANA Mobile Archives features archives and papers of Frank Gasparro, former chief engraver of the United States Mint. The ANA allows the public to view and hold the historic artifacts and papers in protective covers while sitting down with an ANA staff member.
