PNNA Spring Convention Report - 2010

The biggest annual coin show in the Pacific Northwest, sponsored by the Pacific Northwest Numismatic Association (PNNA) and now in its 10th year in Tukwila, was once again a big success, with strong attendance especially on Saturday. Total three-day attendance was estimated at 1,200. Things were a little warm on the bourse floor due to a problem with the ventilation system, but the numismatic action was also hot, with a strong market recovery and strong bullion prices. See the convention program with dealer list (PDF file).

In addition to bourse activity, there were exhibits, awards, club meetings on Saturday, and a popular Young Numismatists (YN) program.

  • Attendees at one of the popular club meetings are pictured below.

  • Juniors on the bourse floor were excited to have the opportunity to complete a set of numismatic items as part of the Young Numismatist (YN) "Treasure Hunt" game. Participation was excellent as always!

  • There were four collector exhibits this year (three competitive), all of which were quite interesting!

  • Attendees once again received custom designed and struck pewter "tokens" while supplies lasted!

Special thanks to Mike Labosier for taking over as general chairman for the 2010 convention.

The PNNA is pleased to announce that the association's annual convention will again be held at the Tukwila Community Center, April 8-10, 2011.
