2022 FNS Coin Show a Success!
We completed our annual Fresno Numismatic Society Coin Show in October 2022 (10/21 & 10/22) which was presented at the American Legion Post 509 in Fresno. This show was organized and conducted by the Society and by most accounts went very well. Dealers and attendees were happy and FNS raised enough cash to finance our club activities through 2023. We are planning for another show next October and with luck, planning, and hard work we should be able to make it an even bigger success.
FNS Ready For Another Great Show
The annual FNS Coin Show for 2023 is planned for October 27 & 28 (Friday and Saturday) at American Legion Post 509. The location is 3509 North First Street, Fresno CA 93726. We expect an outstanding assortment of dealers and are looking forward to a really excellent show.
We have purchased some great prizes for our grand Coin Show Raffle which will be held at the close of show on Saturday 10/28/2023. The top prize is a beautiful 1910-D Indian Gold Eagle in choice About Uncirculated (AU) condition. The second prize is an NGC-certified 1909-D Indian Gold Half Eagle graded MS-61. We will have 11 certified silver coin prizes, mostly Morgan and Peace silver dollars. It is really a terrific selection, probably the best prizes offered at any coin show in California. Winners don't need to be present to win, but you will need to purchase some raffle tickets if you want a chance at winning. We will have plenty of tickets for sale at the show!
Please keep in mind these basic rules about our monthly coin auctions:
1) For our traditional auctions (conducted by FNS), the Fresno Numismatic Society reserves the right to pay sellers by check. Sometimes we may not have enough cash on-hand; in that case, our Treasurer will pay the seller proceeds with an FNS check. Non-member buyers may not pay with a check. Cash only please!
2) For silent auctions the buyers and sellers directly complete all transactions. If your seller accepts a check that is fine! FNS is not a direct participant in silent auctions.
