On behalf of the Willamette Coin Club and all numismatists in
the State of Oregon, welcome to the 2004 National Money Show™ in Portland, the
Oregon has been a destination venue since Lewis and Clark
began their Journey of Discovery in 1804. We gather as old friends much in
the spirit of Lewis and Clark. We too share a common goal, the incredible
journey on which numismatics takes us.
We travel with old friends and meet new ones much like Lewis
and Clark encountered on their way to the Oregon country. Like them our
journey has guides to ease our way. We learn from each other and in turn
pass on this knowledge to those we encounter through journals, shared
observations, enthusiasm, mutual support and fun.
We hope you enjoy your visit here and the sites you will see,
be it on the bourse floor, a trip to The Columbia River Gorge, Mt. St. Helens,
Mt. Hood, the Oregon Coast or the people, places and sounds of this vibrant
city. Take some time to smell the roses enjoy an excellent cup of coffee,
a fine Oregon pinot noir or a glass of beer from one of our many our famous
It is our distinct pleasure to host the ANA and you for the
second time since 1998. May you find what you are looking for and above
all Keep Smiling!
