Baltimore ANA - Exhibiting and Educating
August 08, 2008



One of the main ANA missions is education.

At the national conventions the opportunites for clubs to meet, for participation in over 25 numismatic theater presentations and having space for educational exhibits.

Exhibiting is a fun way to share your collection in an educational way. Telling a story ( and a bit of braging about what you have) for the enjoyment of others. Hey, I've even started to collect ofther stuff because I saw it presented in an interesting display.

This year the Best-in-Show exhibit was a presentation on Civil War era Currency of South Carolina. It was wonderful. The exhibit I presented was in the local interest category and it was on medals of Cardinal Gibbons, the long serving Archbishop of Baltimore. It was judged to be a first place award.

If you seem interested in participating at future Early Spring or Summer convention of the ANA with an exhibit, the exhibting rules, categories and judging sheet samples can be found at the ANA website under the conventions link at www.money.org.
