C96-01 wooden nickel, 39 mm
47th Annual Convention, Portland, Oregon, April 5-6, 1996.
Color: purple.  This piece is a slight error in the sense that the layout of the lettering (going around in a complete circle) was only intended as a draft, but was used for the actual wooden nickel without modification.

August 5-9, 1998.
C98-02 wooden nickel, 38 mm, "ANNUAL CONVENTION" error variety

The PNNA served as the local host organization for the American Numismatic Association's 1998 convention in Portland, and distributed 5,000 of each of these woods as a promotion.
The term "Anniversary Convention" is correct, as the ANA was founded in 1891.
