(Temecula, California) -- The Professional Numismatists Guild (http://www.PNGdealers.org) and the American Numismatic Association (http://www.money.org) have announced plans for the first PNG-ANA Numismatic Trade Show, Saturday through Monday, August 2 - 4, 2014, immediately prior to and in the same location as the Chicago 2014 ANA World's Fair of MoneySM.
"It will be open to the public to buy and sell. We're also trying something new to benefit collectors and dealers with eligibility rules that will make it easy for virtually any dealer to get a table whether or not he or she will have a table at the World's Fair of Money," said PNG Executive Director Robert Brueggeman.
"If prospective table buyers are not already members of the PNG or the ANA, the PNG will sponsor and pay for those dealers' first year memberships in the ANA so they can be eligible to purchase tables at the PNG-ANA Numismatic Trade Show," he explained.
"This show is being produced by the same, experienced team that successfully organized PNG Day shows across the country for two decades," added Brueggeman.
One lucky public visitor each day will win one of three Double Eagle gold coins donated by PNG members as valuable door prizes.
Auctions will be conducted during the show by Stack's Bowers Galleries and Heritage Auctions, the ANA's official 2014 auctioneers.
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, the official grading service of both the ANA and PNG, will accept submissions during the show.
"The collector community will enjoy nine days of education, auctions and fellowship, and they’ll have the opportunity to buy and sell from hundreds of dealers," said Kimberly Kiick, ANA Executive Director. "The PNG and the ANA, along with our two auction houses, Heritage Auctions and Stack’s Bowers Galleries, are excited to all be working together to present the biggest numismatic event of the year."
The PNG-ANA Numismatic Trade Show will be conveniently held in the same convention hall as the 2014 ANA World's Fair of Money at the DonaldE.StephensConvention Center in the Chicago suburb of Rosemont, Illinois.
