Count Down to the Next FUN Show

Until the 64th Annual FUN Convention in Orlando

FUN 2019 will soon be here and only on this page can you find out what is happening. For starters the U.S. Mint and the BEP will be attending and the BEP will be bringing their BILLION DOLLAR display. The last time it was here I added it up and it was slightly over 1.5 Billion Dollars. The always popular Piedmont Gold Panners will be on site as will Dennis Boggs as Abraham Lincoln and Ray Dillard with his penny rolling machine. We have also invited David Ryder, the Director of the Mint and the Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin to attend FUN 2019. If or when they accept, you will see it here first on the FUN Topics site. Check out FUN Convention tab for information about the table layout and the dealers who will be at Winter FUN.

Submissions for the Winter FUN show is over, but there is plenty of time for Summer FUN. No prizes are awarded for Summer FUN, but you can practice your exhibiting skills. Your love of numismatics can be rewarding for you and educational to others. Check out the Exhibit Display tab on this page to preview the 33 Exhibits that are scheduled be at the FUN Show. For more information on exhibiting at future FUN Shows contact Bob Russell.

Once again in conjuction with the ANA the Annual FUN convention will be hosting two grading seminars. The first is the Fundamentals of Grading of U.S. Coins and the second is the Advanced Grading of U.S. and World Paper Money. For more information check out the link in the What's New at FUN at the bottom of this page.

Hotel rooms near the convention center are starting to sell out. If you want the FUN discount rate you need to call NOW. Our tenative floor plan is calling for over 600 dealer tables. If you want a table it is imperative you contact our bourse chairman Cindy Wibker immediately. Once again we will be running a shuttle bus from the parking lot to our front door, and remember when you park tell the parking attendants you want the FUN (coin show) parking rate of $10.00. The normal convention rate is $17.00 to park.
