More than one million dollars worth of money is expected to be in full view this weekend at the 40th Annual Coin and Currency Show of the Meridian Area Coin Club.
Held in the Howard Johnson Convention Center, the show will be open
9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and
9 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday. Children under 12 and members of any coin club will be admitted free of charge. All other tickets are $1.
The show gives coin collectors and dealers the opportunity to buy, sell or trade their valuables.
Non-collectors also will enjoy the show, according to Lee Davison, a charter member of the Meridian Area Coin Club.
Besides money, other collectibles scheduled for display at the show include gold, silver, jewelry, sports cards, tokens, gems, minerals, stamps and Civil War relics.
Free appraisals will be available at the show, according to Bill Nettles of the Meridian Area Coin Club. He is chairman of this year's coin show, which he expects will draw 500-600 people, a larger crowd than previous years.
He said 36 dealers are scheduled for the show, including one dealer from New Jersey who specializes in ancient coins. Other dealers will come from throughout the South, including Texas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Arkansas.
