U.S. Mexican Numismatic Association
2019 CONVENTION AND EDUCATIONAL FORUM
Our eighth annual convention will be held Thursday through Saturday, October 17-19, 2019 at the Hilton Scottsdale Resort & Villas, 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.
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 5pm on the pool area patio just outside the convention rooms. Appetizers will be served, 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. 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 2018.
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. This seminar will be continued each year covering new areas of counterfeit detection.
BOURSE FLOOR. The bourse area includes Latin American Coins and Currency, and are pleased to welcome new dealers.
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 the address below.
EXHIBITS. We would like to have approximately six displays on the convention floor. So far we have several excellent proposals. 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.
IAPN TABLE. The International Association of Professional Numismatists has graciously donated four new microscopes to the Association. The microscopes will be located at a special table on the bourse floor and are available for use by attendees.
LOCAL ACTIVITIES. The hotel is located in Scottsdale close to a huge selection of restaurants, golf courses and shopping. Other nearby activities include everything from casinos to indoor skydiving.
HOTEL RESERVATIONS. We have arranged a special room rate at the Resort of $179 per night. The easiest way to make a reservation follow the Reservation link above. You can make your reservations now and I strongly urge you not to wait. Room rates become much higher after our block sells out.
ADMISSION. Admission to the convention will be free to members, $5 to nonmembers and free to all family members and children under 15. Early entry is available to members only Thursday afternoon for a $10 per person donation to the Association.
