YN Program at PNNA Spring
Conventions The PNNA YN Treasure Hunt typically takes place all three
days of the annual PNNA Convention, beginning about 3:00 PM on
Friday. Young numismatists (YNs) ages 17 and under have the opportunity to
earn free coins by finding stickers at various stops on the bourse floor. The YN program,
usually run by ANA immediate past president Walt Ostromecki, is a hit with kids of all ages!! The
Boeing Employees Coin Club (BECC) and/or other local coin clubs may also assist with the
YN program. For more information about the BECC, see www.seattlebecc.org.
(However, please note that Walt is not available for the 2017
spring show. We're still expecting to have the YN Treasure Hunt with
a local coordinator.)
YN Program at

This popular event is held each September. The PNNA sponsors the annual coin exhibit
in the Hobby Hall, with assistance from local coin clubs. We typically have handouts including
magazine copies, event calendars, a coin club list and coins

These handouts are also available at the spring and fall shows.
