  • YN Program at PNNA Spring Conventions – The PNNA YN Treasure Hunt typically takes place all three days of the annual PNNA Convention, beginning about 3:00 PM on Friday. Young numismatists (YNs) ages 17 and under have the opportunity to earn free coins by finding stickers at various “stops” on the bourse floor. The YN program, run by ANA President Walt Ostromecki, is a hit with kids of all ages!! The Boeing Employees Coin Club (BECC) and/or other local coin clubs may also assist with the YN program. For more information about the BECC, see
