Welcome to the Monthly
Greater Atlanta Coin Shows!
The November Greater Atlanta Coin Show was busy-busy-busy with people visiting a bourse filled with
coin dealers and their showcases displaying coins, currency, bullion and other collectibles.
A big Thank You goes to all of the people — new guests, returning visitors, dealers, security and
hotel personnel — that made the November coin show another successful adventure.
Whether buying, selling or browsing, we welcome everyone to visit the show — newbies, old hands and
people just curious about a coin show. We appreciate all of the coin dealers and all of the visitors that make
the Greater Atlanta Coin Show a success each month!

Each month, visitors can view and buy from the displays of coins, currency and bullion found among the many
showcases provided by the coin dealers on the bourse.
The coin dealers also purchase coins, currency and bullion collections from attendees. They offer their
best competitive prices given the current market conditions.
The Greater Atlanta Coin Show welcomes both new and experienced collectors of coins and currency along with
new and experienced investors of coins and bullion metals - gold, silver and platinum - as well. And,
admission is always free.
If you are just curious about a coin show or maybe you want to learn about an old coin or piece of currency you
received or found, you are welcome at the coin show too.
If you are considering selling coins, currency or precious metals (for example, bullion silver, gold and
platinum), you can bring them to the coin show for valuation. The experienced coin dealers can examine and provide
free verbal appraisals during the coin show. Based on their offers in the current
market, you can choose to sell or to keep your valuables.
The monthly coin show's location is the Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Hotel & Conference Center located at
500 Powder Springs Street just south of the historic Marietta Square in Marietta, Georgia. (For
those of you looking for the "Dunwoody Coin Show," this is it. We moved.) More details can be found on our

The Greater Atlanta Coin Show began in 1988. Given the volatility in the metals recently, it's interesting
to review the fluctuations of gold and silver throughout all of the coin show years, from 1988 through 2012 and
Take a look at our silver charts to see how silver began at just over $6, dropped into the
$3.50s and is now moving in the low $20s.
Similarly, our gold charts show the yellow metal's prices began right at $441, dropped
into the $250s and is now bouncing in the upper $1200s to lower $1300s per troy ounce.
The silver and gold charts are through Friday, November 8, updated for the values before the recent
coin show. New charts will be posted after the next monthly coin show.
For informational fun, this Kitco chart shows the metals' values on the Friday before the November coin
