The PNNA convention is the oldest and biggest annual coin show in the Pacific Northwest.

PNNA coin shows normally feature a large active bourse, exhibits, numismatic theater and club meetings, and a popular young numismatist (YN) program. Some activities were cancelled for the 2022 and 2023 spring shows, including the numismatic theater.

Location: Tukwila Community Center, 12424 42nd Ave. So., Tukwila, WA. A link to Google Maps is available on the TCC website. The 42nd Ave. S. bridge is one-way traffic away from the community center, so be sure to follow the detour signs when entering from Interurban Ave. S.

Dealers – Up to 85 local, regional and national numismatic dealer booths. A dealer list and map are posted at each show. See the dealer list for the 2023 spring coin show in Tukwila. (2024 list will be posted before the show.)

Education/Exhibits – There were not any formal Numismatic Theater presentations in 2023, however we ran a continuous loop of ANA education videos in the exhibit room on Friday and Saturday, along with a limited number of collector exhibits. Check back for 2024 updates.

Grading ServicesANACS returned to PNNA coin shows in the fall of 2022 and attended again at the 2023 shows. A discount was available for certain U.S. coin submissions, and this will likely be true again in 2024. When an ANACS representative attends, the representative accepts submissions, but a grader is not present at PNNA shows.

SCC Meeting – Guests are invited to attend the Seattle Coin Club Thursday evening meeting (April 11 at 6 p.m.), also at the Tukwila Community Center. There will likely be a special guest speaker!

Scout Activities – A BSA coin collecting merit badge workshop has been scheduled on Saturday, April 13, 2024, at 1 p.m., in Tukwila at the annual convention and spring coin show. See the scouting page. Girls can now participate in the BSA program.

Security – The show entry area will be under video surveillance. Your image may be recorded. These recordings could be shared with law enforcement in the event of an incident at the show. Registration for door prizes is optional. ID will be required to claim door prizes. See the PNNA privacy policy

Youth Activities – Young Numismatist (YN) treasure hunt will likely be offered on Saturday and Sunday (April 13-14), as part of youth and family activities. See Young Numismatist (YN) program information. Last spring (2023) the YN program was offered on both days, run by local volunteers, and was simplified so as not to require visiting “stops” on the bourse floor.
