Shows, Shows, Shows!

Have you ever been to a coin show? Do you go to all of them? Did you even know they existed?

Coin shows are put on throughout the United States and around the world. There are quite a few large numismatic events each year in the US along with even more smaller local shows. Chances are there’s a show coming up that may be close to you.

PCGS attends most of the large coin shows in the US, and we also attend a select number of international coin shows. At the majority of the shows PCGS attends, we will offer on-site grading, accept submissions for processing at our office and will be able to supply information and literature about PCGS and the services we offer. For a complete listing of all shows PCGS will be attending, visit our shows page at www.pcgs.com/shows. PCGS’ attendance and on-site grading at each event is subject to change without notice, while we plan as far in advance as possible it is always best to check with our Customer Service Department prior to making travel arrangements if you plan on submitting for on-site grading to PCGS.

At the larger shows like the Long Beach Expo you can find everything you need! In addition to hundreds of coin dealers you will also find the largest, most respected and well-known auction houses, numismatic club meetings, grading courses, informational seminars, a free kid’s treasure hunt and much more! The Long Beach Expo is the largest coin show on the West Coast and is currently in its 50th year. The Long Beach Expo is owned by Collectors Universe therefore ALL PCGS Collectors Club members, PCGS Authorized Dealers and CoinFacts subscribers get in for free! To find out more information on the next Long Beach Expo, visit their website at www.longbeachexpo.com.

Coins and technology now go hand in hand, with the ever changing and advancing technology available to us, Collectors Corner (a division of Collectors Universe) has come up with an app to find all of the coins you are looking for at the show you are attending! Have you ever been to a show and had to walk the entire bourse floor just to find one coin? Were you able to find it? Or did you end up going home empty handed? CoinSearch pretty much puts a stop to spending the entire show walking the floor searching and hunting and possibly not even finding what you are looking for. For more information, including a step-by-step how to, check out the CoinSearch page.

Our PCGS Members Only Shows are becoming more and more popular each year. Have you attended a PCGS Members Only Show in Las Vegas? If not then you’re definitely missing out on the event to be at! Six to eight times a year PCGS pulls out all the stops for our Members Only Shows, these events are only open to PCGS Authorized Dealers, Collectors Club Members and CoinFacts subscribers! Don’t worry, if you’re not currently a member you can always join at the show!

In addition to on-site grading and submission acceptance (including bulk!), you can also search and buy from some of the nation’s top coin dealers and numismatic experts. Enjoy a fun filled week in Las Vegas! PCGS offers exclusive pricing at the host hotel for each Members Only Show (act fast as these rooms typically go fast!).

PCGS has teamed up with Legend Rare Coin Auctions, who is the official auctioneer of the Regency Auction (exclusive to PCGS Members Only Shows). There are a maximum of 500 coins per auction, featuring the most sought-after coins around, such as U.S. coins consisting predominantly of top-quality PCGS-graded coins with exceptional eye appeal.

We encourage you to attend the shows around you and even across the country if this is possible. Not only will you enjoy the show but the sights in each city are like no other! Hopefully we will see you at one of the many future shows.
