Count Down to the Next FUN Show

Until the 16th Summer FUN Convention

SUMMER FUN IS SOLD OUT

There is just under two weeks to go for the Start of Summer FUN. Our floor is sold out and we have a waiting list for dealer tables. As a reminder to our attending public the show starts ar 10:00 a.m. and is FREE to attend. The convention center does charge for parking though. Let the parking attendants know you are here for the FUN Show (Coin Show for some of them), so you can get our discounted rate of $10.00 otherwise they will ask for $17.00. We will be having a rather large Summer FUN Bourse floor of 270 Dealer tables. This table count does NOT include tables for Wizard, the kids and coins booth or the gold panners. They are actual dealers on the floor. For those who sent in your Bourse applications early, Thank You. Early apps always makes the tasks of setting these conventions up go so much easier. For those who are still thinking about it, we do have a waiting list should somebody drop out at the last minute. Otherwise there are a lot of tables still available for our 68 th Annual FUN Convention in January 2023. Get your applications in early, beat the crowd and ensure you have a booth at the largest coin show in the world. Dealer registration for Summer FUN will start at 9:00 am on Wednesday July 6. Go to the SUMMER FUN tab and review our list of dealers and the floor layout. Be prepared and plan your table visitations before you arrive and I will see you in July.

We have extended invitations to: Piedmont Gold panners and they accepted our offer to appear at Summer FUN. Also Sam Gelberd will work the Coins & kids area, Mike Bean will be on site with his Spider Press. The U.S Mint has advised they will not be able to attend Summer FUN 2022. Heritage Auctions will also attend Summer FUN. Heritage had great success during the 67 th FUN Convention by having lot viewing held during the convention and the auction conducted a week later. They are going to use the same format during Summer FUN.

Finally Randy Campbell has lined up 4 Educational Seminars:

  • Where the Buffalo Roams
  • An Analysis of the Peace Dollar Series
  • Recently Seen Spectacular Varieties and Errors
  • Coins of the Colonial New World

    For room blocks, you can Email Reservations for FUN Show Hotels. Make sure you are in "the right place" by always going to WWW.FUNTopics.com and clicking on the Official Hotel page. Our hotel housing bureau will never call or email requesting you book your room and they will never post a deadline to book. Avoid the scammers and book ONLY through the FUN website. Our hotels are giving us ridiculously low rates for the Orlando area, so book your rooms early and lock in those values.

    You may also call our toll free reservations number, Monday - Friday 8:30 AM - 5:30 PM, Eastern Time: (855)467-7245.

    Please be careful of callers or emails using phishing tactics claiming to be associated with FUN. These scams have become extremely aggressive.

    The Section on FUN Seminars has been revamped. In conjunction with the Newman Portal we can present to you all of the videos produced during the FUN Conventions. Check out our seminars by going to the navigation bar at the top of this page and catch the FUN Seminar from the past that you wished you did not miss.
