ANA National Money ShowSM - Sacramento, California
March 17-19, 2011

Report by John and Nancy Wilson

Thank you Sacramento NMS

The ANA National Money ShowSM (NMS) was held on March 17-19, 2011 at the Sacramento Convention Center. It was another successful coin show that had lots going on for everyone who attended. Public attendance and dealer business seemed pretty steady. ANA was in Sacramento in 1999, and this time around it appeared the area had improved with more hotels, restaurants and things to do.

Lots of people did a great job in preparing and running this NMS. Thanks to General Chairman Jeff Shevlin and his committee - along with the host Sacramento Valley Coin Club; the ANA National Volunteers; Executive Director Larry Shepherd and his staff; Convention Director Rhonda Scurek; President Cliff Mishler and the Board; ANA Museum Showcase; the Official Program & Mementos; the exhibitors, judges, speakers and scout clinic instructors; YN Programs, Treasure Trivia & Kids Zone; Kickoff Dinner & Wine Tasting tour, SVCC Dinner on the Delta King (Riverboat) and Mining & Minting in Carson City Seminar; publicity and security personnel; U.S. Mint, Post Office (and Special Cancellation) and FedEx; Numismatic News, Coin World and COINage; Coin Club tables; Heritage Auction Galleries; the dealers with tables; the visitors; and all the sponsors - who helped to make this NMS the huge success it was. Thank you all.

See you at the WFOM in Chicago on August 16-20, 2011. John and Nancy Wilson, ANA National Volunteers.

Response from General Chairman Jeff Shevlin

Thank you John and Nancy for the thoughtful letter. The volunteers from the Sacramento Valley Coin Club and the chairpersons helping organize the event all really appreciate hearing that they did a great job. It was a very organized and well run convention. The ANA staff and SVCC volunteers partnered together and it was an enjoyable experience for everyone involved. Thank you.
