The 72nd Annual PNNA Convention and Spring Coin Show was held April 14-16, 2023, in Tukwila, Washington, and was a huge success! Convention chairman Kevin Charboneau reported a three-day public attendance of 1,137, and many dealers with tables at the show reported excellent business.
David Edge, of the Seattle Coin Club, interviewed several dealers, along with PNNA “penny squisher” Rick Schulz, and produced a nice 5-minute video, which you can view on YouTube via the link below.
In other convention activity, James Reinders reported that the BSA coin collecting merit badge workshop held on Saturday was highly successful, with about 25 scouts participating. The youth “treasure hunt” was held in a simplified format, with local volunteer Tony Kalt filling in for ANA Past President Walt Ostromecki. The collector exhibits were noncompetitive this time, but there were four nice exhibits for show visitors to view on Saturday.
Congratulations to Bob Everett Memorial Award winner Mark Gruner, announced at the Saturday evening general membership meeting. Award information has been updated on this website – see the awards page.
Thanks to all who attended the convention/coin show, and to all who helped including especially the South Hill Coin Club volunteers. The PNNA 18th Annual Fall Coin Show in Tukwila is scheduled for October 6-8, 2023.
