NCNA Convention is Around the Corner!


2019 NCNA Convention & Show Highlights

The 2019 NCNA Convention and Show – the Association’s 61st annual show – will be held the first weekend in October: Friday, Saturday and Sunday October 4-5-6.

The Convention will be held again at the beautiful Cabarrus Arena and Events Center in Concord, NC. The Arena complex is located at 4751 NC Highway 49 N. Show hours are 10:00am to 6:00pm on Friday and Saturday, and from 10:00am to 3:00pm on Sunday. Please note the schedule for the Convention below.

The Convention team has worked hard to put together another outstanding show! The bourse will include 140 dealer tables with numismatic and philatelic treasures from the US and around the world; books and supplies will also be available. Dealers from 10 states are confirmed for this year’s show, so a great variety of material will be available to “fill holes” in most any collection!

Parking Voucher Program

The Arena will likely be charging a parking fee of $5.00 during the Convention. To help offset this expense for attendees, the NCNA has created a voucher program. Upon registering, show attendees will receive a $5.00 voucher that can be used at participating dealers at the show; a list of such dealers will be posted. The vouchers are good for a $5.00 discount on purchases. Please note: 1) Bullion purchases are excluded from the voucher program; 2) Only one voucher per attendee per day; 3) Only one voucher per purchase with minimum $75 purchase – they can’t be combined.).

General Membership Meeting

The annual NCNA General Membership meeting will be held on Saturday, October 5 at 8:30am. The meeting is open to all show attendees – come on out ahead of the bourse’s opening and meet your NCNA Board and hear the latest updates about your Association. A highlight of the meeting will be the NCNA’s annual awards presentations; the awards honor outstanding contributions from numismatists across the state. Installing the 2019-2020 NCNA Board is also a part of the meeting’s agenda. Light refreshments will be provided.

Young Collector’s Zone

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Bob Pedolsky will be hosting the “Young Collector’s Zone” on the bourse floor. The area will feature a “treasure hunt”, and other fun games educational activities for young collectors. All kids participating in the program will receive free coin prizes! There will also be a Boy Scout Merit Badge Seminar at 11am.

Raffle

A gold coin raffle will be part of the Convention again this year. Five 1/10th ounce gold coins will be auctioned off on Sunday afternoon (winners need not be present). Tickets are just $1.00 each with six for $5.00. Proceeds go toward the NCNA’s education programs.

Convention Educational Opportunities

The Convention will include an educational exhibit area featuring a range of displays covering many areas of the hobby – coins, bank notes, tokens, medals, etc. will all be on display. The exhibit area will be located down the entire left side of the hall.
