2013 Melbourne International Coin and Banknote Show October 18-20

August 24, 2013

Melbourne is to host the International Coin and Banknote Show at Etihad Stadium on the 18, 19 and 20th October 2013. It will be open from 10am each day closing at 6pm on Friday and 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. This coin show WILL be bigger than the ANDA coin shows seen in various capital cities throughout the year. It is being touted as THE largest coin show in Australia in the past 10-20 years and the numismatic event of the decade. This mega-event will include viewing and the IAG (International Auction Galleries) Auction sale number 78 usually held on the Gold Coast. Highlights of this auction include a Holey Dollar and three Adelaide pounds. This auction will be held next door to the show on the Saturday night.

This International Coin Show will be the place to meet coin designers, buy special show release coins and attend seminar presentations by numsimatic experts (hopefully not the ones currently in receivership ). The Royal Australian Mint will be in attendance with their mobile coin press to strike an M counterstamp onto a Holey Dollar and Dump Bicentenary 2013 1 Dollar coin -a usual favourite missed at the Melbourne ANDA coin show held in July this year. The Perth Mint will also have their show product a 2013 lenticular 1 oz silver proof dollar celebrating Melbourne and St Petersburg sister cities. Struck in 99.9% pure silver this issue will be limited to only 2,000 coins.

2013 is a memorable year in numismatics with celebrations for 200 years since Australia struck it's first coins the holey dollar and dump and 100 years of Commonwealth Banknotes. It's also the first time we've seen a coloured coin in circulation the purple striped Coronation $2 celebrating the Queen's 60 years since being crowned monarch.

The Etihad venue is fully air conditioned and just a short walk from Spencer St Station adjacent to the stadium via a walkway. There is also ample car parking if you choose to drive. A cafe with with snacks, lunch and beverages will keep you going as you take a breather from the vast dealer tables and counterstamp queue to catchup with numismatic acquaintances.

There will be displays by the Melbourne Museum and the Royal Australian Mint and keep your eye open for a special showbag! Dealers attending include:
