  • PAMP Attends World's Fair of Money in Philadelphia

    PAMP was in attendance at the American Numismatic Association's annual convention this past August to celebrate the history of currency and the role it plays in our world. The long-running convention, now known as The World's Fair of Money, was held from August 7th through August 11th at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA and showcased a wealth of treasures from top dealers and international mints. The fair also provides a special opportunity for PAMP to meet with its esteemed international business partners.

    A key focus for PAMP throughout the fair was announcing its partnership with UNESCO to initiate a new and unprecedented Coin and Medal Program. Representatives from PAMP met with attendees from several government mints to discuss their potential participation in the upcoming program. The feedback from these representatives was very positive and enthusiastic.

    The World's Fair of Money for 2012 featured dealers occupying nearly 500 tables throughout the convention center and played host to representatives of 16 mints from five continents. Auctions were held during the week for a wide range of rare and sought-after coins while various awards were presented for over 50 exhibits. Especially popular at the fair was a presentation from the The British Royal Mint featuring examples of gold, silver and bronze medals from the Summer Olympics in London.
