Coin Show - Monthly Notes for June 2020
We do plan to hold the July 2020 Greater Atlanta Coin Show unless state, county, local, hotel or other issues prevent the show.
As with the June show, the Hilton plans to provide us with the larger space to encourage social distancing.
As usual, dealers will display their collectibles including coins, currency, bullion, exonumia, scripophily, semi-precious stones, jewelry and other intriguing items.
We will have both regular dealers and visiting dealers with their many treasures on display.
Regardless of your particular numismatic study, there will be one or more dealers at the show with knowledge and expertise to help you.
All visitors to the show are welcome whether buying, selling, trading or just looking at the many different items.
Visitors may also bring items to the show for a free verbal appraisal, and if desired, offer to sell those collectibles to one or more dealers at the show.
Mark your calendar and visit the next Greater Atlanta Coin Show on Sunday, July 12, 2020 in the Joe Mack Wilson ballroom.
The June 2020 Greater Atlanta Coin Show welcomed dealers and visitors to the first show after the politicians and medical personnel recommended shelter in place.
We were not the first coin show to open, but we were definitely one of the first to get back to the regular schedule. At least one other - Knoxville - held a show before our June date.
We were also the second event held at the Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Hotel and Conference Center after the restrictions began being lifted. Though, their other event was a small one.
Normally, the show takes two-thirds of the Joe Mack Wilson ballroom, however the Hilton allowed us to have the whole area to enable more social distancing.
We appreciate the hotel's efforts, with their skeleton staff, in helping make the June show happen.
Of course, we always appreciate our visitors, our dealers and our security in their support of the show.
The show was busy with many people appreciating the opportunity to get out and visit a coin show.
In all likelihood, the diehard numismatists were having withdrawal pains from not having a monthly show to attend. (Said somewhat with tongue in cheek, but also some seriousness as well.)
Several of our dealers with underlying health issues chose not to come back as yet, but other dealers took their place. Some dealers commented that it "felt good" to get back into doing shows.
Remember, some of these dealers are road warriors with shows almost every weekend. They, too, had to be encountering withdrawal pains.
We did request that people wear masks and follow the 6-foot social distancing rule as possible.
Some did; some didn't.
That's very much like what you see when you go grocery shopping or to the big box home improvement stores.
It seems that everyone had a good time at the show and enjoyed seeing old friends and looking at the various numismatic and other collectibles on display.
The day was busy and unfortunately taking images of interesting numismatics was not possible.
For grins, take a look at some of the pictures of the show's bourse. With the larger room, tables could be placed further apart to encourage keeping a distance between dealers and between guests.
The last image taken at the end of the day shows an empty parking lot, which is odd for the hotel.
They generally have several vehicles for people staying at the hotel.
This time, it's one lone vehicle.
That should be changing in the near future, at least we hope so.
In the meantime, stay strong, stay healthy, stay safe.
