Save the date everyone! This will be one of the last coin shows on the Australian numismatic calendar for 2016 and it’s big news for Adelaide and South Australians. Show organiser Richard Welling, president of the NSSA and owner of Ye Olde Coin Co promises it to be a great show and will help collectors to have a very numismatic Christmas.
Local and interstate dealers will be attending as well as people who just want to sell stuff -how cool is that!
