2018 CONVENTION AND EDUCATIONAL FORUM
Our seventh annual convention will be held Thursday through Saturday, October 11-13, 2018 at the Hilton Scottsdale Resort, 6333 N Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale, Arizona.
Our boutique convention is a unique experience designed for serious collectors of Mexican and Latin American Numismatics. It is primarily a social and educational event combined with a bourse floor containing the most extensive inventory of Mexican and Latin American collectibles that you will find. It is the must attend event of the year for serious collectors.
2018 US Mex Event Schedule
AUREO & CALICO. We want to welcome the first dealers from Europe attending our convention. They will be bringing highlights from their upcoming auction of Mexican coinage. We hope to see a number of other European dealers attending future conventions.
AMERICAN NUMISMATIC SOCIETY. We are very pleased that the ANS will be attending our convention again. They will be bringing a great display of coins from their collection. If you are not already a member, we highly recommend you join. Ute Wartenberg Kagan, the Executive Director of the Society will be here to answer any questions you may have.
WELCOME PARTY. The welcome party, which has become one of the highlights of the event, will be held Thursday at 5 pm on the pool area patio just outside the convention rooms. Appetizers will be served, courtesy of Cris Bierrenbach, and the bar will be open for you to purchase beverages of your choice. Be sure to arrive in time for the welcome party!
SILENT AUCTION. The silent auction consists of donations of coins, currency, books and other items from our members and supporters to raise funds for the organization. The silent auction has been a resounding success and is a major source of income for the Association. Last year 25 donated items realized over $4 ,000 for the organization. Please make a donation to this worthy cause.
AWARDS CEREMONY. Awards will be presented during the Welcome Party to various members of the organization for their contributions during 2017.
COUNTERFEIT DETECTION SEMINAR. Our most popular seminar has been the one on counterfeit detection, which is presented by some of the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, including Kent Ponterio, Dan Sedwick, and Mike Dunigan. This seminar will be continued each year covering new areas of counterfeit detection.
BOOK PRESENTATION. The recent publication by Manuel Chacon Hidalgo “Historia de la Casa de Moneda de Costa Rica 1828-1849” Will be presented to the U.S. public.
BOOK SALE. We have received donations of books and auction catalogs from generous members and will be setting up a large table to sell these items at very reasonable prices which will benefit the Association. If you have excess books and auction catalogs in your library that you would like to donate, please send them to me at my office address below.
EXHIBITS. We have room for six displays on the convention floor. If you are interested in setting up a display, give me a call. Once again, we will be judging and giving out awards for the best displays.
