Pacific Northwest Numismatic Association
16th Annual Fall Coin Show, Tukwila, WA

All previous PNNA fall coin shows were in Portland. This was the first PNNA Tukwila fall coin show!
Due to uncertainties about this year’s fall shows, the PNNA did not produce a special edition of The Nor’wester. Instead, the 4th Quarter 2021 edition of The Nor’wester is a smaller 8-page color edition, and extra paper copies are not available. Members subscribed to paper copies should have received their copies before the fall Tukwila show – the copies were mailed on Sept. 29, 2021.
Washington State (Puyallup) Fair
Official Fair website | PNNA Fair page
The Fair began Labor Day weekend (on Sept. 3), and ran until Sept. 26. We hope you were able to attend!
PNNA activities at the Fair took place in the Hobby Hall, for nine specific two- to five-hour presentations only (NOT the entire Fair as in the past).
Due to uncertainties about this year’s Fair, the PNNA did not produce a special edition of The Nor’wester for the Fair. Instead, the 3rd Quarter 2021 edition of The Nor’wester is a smaller 8-page color edition, and extra paper copies are not available. Members subscribed to paper copies should have received their copies by about August 12.

Thanks to ANACS and Heritage Auctions for advertising in this edition, along with West Coast Coins, a couple other local dealers, and an Idaho coin show which was held the same weekend (April 10-11) as the PNNA show was originally scheduled.
