Welcome to Tukwila by General Chairman Kevin Charboneau

Spring is just around the corner. That means it is time for the oldest and largest annual coin show in the Pacific Northwest: The 68th annual Pacific Northwest Numismatic Association Spring Convention and Coin Show! We had to move the show dates because of problems with security and May Day events in Seattle. This year’s show is set for March 17-19.

Dozens of your favorite local, regional and national dealers will cover 85 tables with a wide selection of numismatic and exonumia material in all price ranges. There is sure to be something to excite everybody interest. There will be U.S. coins ranging from colonial coppers to gold double eagles and modern commemoratives. Classic Greek coins and Roman coins of the Caesars will be well represented, along with coins of all other ancient civilizations. Foreign coin enthusiasts will find dealers specializing in medieval coins, modern world coins, and everything in between. Currency collectors will find examples of colonial paper and the entire range of U.S. currency, as well as fascinating and colorful foreign bank notes. Beautiful and historic medals and interesting tokens will be on display and available for sale. People will be buying and selling all kinds of bullion throughout the show. You can also display your collection in a judged exhibit, or enjoy the displays of others.

The annual convention brings together many of our members. This is a great opportunity for our existing members to demonstrate the vitality of our hobby to the newest members of your local club. I encourage you to bring someone as your guest to this event. I am looking for volunteers to help out at the front desk. The job is simply to monitor the people going in and out of the door and answer some very general questions. In return for your one hour of time, you will receive admission for the day to the show. Email kcharboneau58@comcast.net with the day you would like to help out. I will assign you a time on a first-come first-serve basis and notify you by return email.

The PNNA annual meeting on Saturday is open to all, and your comments and suggestions on how the PNNA can best promote our wonderful hobby are most welcome.

We’re happy to see you -- enjoy the show!
