Vegas Coin Show: March 20-22, 2015
Last Time at Riviera: Vegas Rare Coin and Paper Money Show Hosts Silver Dollar Panel, Counterfeit Seminar


Over fifty years ago, the first Vegas coin show opened as a gala event featuring show girls prancing with giant golden coins at the now defunct Sahara Hotel. U. S. Mint Director, Eva Adams, presented awards and over 7,000 people attended, including the legendary Sam Boyd. The show is now back on the strip at the Riviera Hotel and Casino, opening Mar 20, but soon this historic hotel will be destroyed.


Over $50,000,000 worth of rare U. S. and world coins, currency, stamps, collectibles and jewelry will be on display, including the valuable 1943 bronze Lincoln cent worth $250,000 offered by the Argent Group of Delaware.  Attendees will be able to view, buy, sell and trade silver dollars, Carson City coinage, colonial copper, Civil War tokens, confederate currency, gold nuggets, English silver, even a $1000 bill.  Also exhibited are the rare decadrachm of Syracuse, Columbian emeralds, casino chips, world’s fair medals, vintage movie posters, daguerreotypes and other collectibles.


“We are very excited about moving to the historic Riviera Hotel and Casino last December, but saddened to abruptly lose this historical venue.” reveals Dawn Napolitan, CK Shows.  “The Riviera is perfectly located for easy access and plenty of parking for locals and positioned nicely for out of town visitors and exhibitors.  We are thrilled to re-connect with the fabulous Las Vegas Strip, the roots of this ‘Coin Town.’  Many people forget that, up until the early 1970’s, silver dollars were still being played in these very slot machines, in the “Silver State.”  What a better way to close the book on the Riviera’s storied past than a convention celebrating silver dollars?”


This 52nd annual exposition is presented by CK Shows for the Las Vegas Numismatic Society who provides scholarships for Nevadan collegiate and numismatic education to the Las Vegas community.


At the exposition, a person may get a free appraisal from over 150 independent dealers, purchase gold and silver coins, learn about history, shop for a gift and see interesting and rare stamps.  You may sell old coins, paper money and gold, browse fine jewelry and submit coins for grading and authentication.  Peruse vintage collectibles and antique silver. Find out what your local coin club does for fun or attend a silver dollar seminar. Look at ancient coins, relics and icons or check out old Vegas memorabilia. Locate coin collecting supplies, kid’s programs, reference books, educational forums, guest authors and more!


In short, a coin show is a place to buy, sell, view and learn for three days in this exciting competitive marketplace of over 150 dealers.
