   The Charlotte Coin Club held its 43rd Annual Coin Show February 8-10, at the Metrolina Tradeshow Expo Center.

With a sold out bourse of 150 tables, including two grading services taking submissions, a raffle giveaway every hour of the show (including a gold coin), a Treasure Hunt for children attending the show, and over 25 club volunteers to help, all that was needed was the public to turn out; and they did in a big way, with record attendance.
The aisles were packed with an enthusiastic public from the start. Charlotte Coin Club President Jerry Sajbel said,  at the end of the show, that he was deliriously happy about the public turnout. From when the doors opened on Saturday, at 10 AM, till after 5 PM, the show was a wall of people. Even on Sunday, the public showed up in force. With many shows having a difficult time retaining dealers at their shows on Sundays, only a few dealers were not in attendance on Sunday, some of those due to travel.

Dealer Ken Byrd, of KBCC, said that there was “Great steady traffic all weekend and the collectors were here.”

John Kraljevich, one of the nation’s leaders in early American coins, medals and paper money, had a table exhibited for the first time at the Charlotte show and said that there was a “good healthy community for colonial copper and world coins.”

Dan Lewis of Black Mountain Coins said that the show was OK, but not great, a lot of traffic, with some buying, but a lot better than other recent shows. He has seen a lot of interest in world currency over the past few months compared to US currency. Overall, he was happy with the show. Randy Campbell, Senior Grader for ICG, said it was the best show in North Carolina, with good foot traffic. Mr. Campbell commented there was a lot of counterfeit gold at all shows and to remind people that, just because coins have been in the family for years, that is no guarantee that they are real. Also, that the counterfeit coins coming out of China were a major problem from gold to 1911-D Lincoln Cents.

ANACS Regional Representative Matt Adams, setting up at the Charlotte Show for the first time, was pleased with the public’s reception and said ANACS would return. Mr. Adams stated that both Friday and Saturday he was busy accepting coin submissions for grading. The public was very enthusiastic and there was a good vibe to the show.

The Treasure Hunt for the kids concentrated on presidents on coins and paper money that also included a word search for the YN’s to take home. Each youth who completed the Treasure Hunt received coins and supplies worth over $15. Items, such as supplies, books, etc., donated by members of the Charlotte Coin Club and the local Charlotte coin stores, were free to the kids. Adults could also make selections from the donated items for a donation to the Charlotte Coin Club YN Program. Over $500 was raised over the weekend of the Charlotte Coin Club Show for their YN’s program.

North Carolina Numismatic Association (NCNA) Vice President Mike Griffin reported from the association’s meeting on Saturday night that, plans were well underway way for the state show in Greensboro, to be held the weekend of Oct 4-6. It will be the first time in Greensboro and they expect a sold out bourse of 140 tables.
