Exhibit at the Northwest Coin Club 2020 Money Show
Do you want to compete with other numismatic exhibitors? Do you want to share your numismatic expertise with other collectors? Then, by now you should be noodling ideas for the exhibit you will enter at the Northwest Coin Club’s annual Money Show at the Earle Brown Heritage Center in March, 2020. Once you have settled on a topic for your exhibit, fill out the EXHIBIT APPLICATION and submit it to the Exhibit Coordinator.
All Exhibit Applications must be received no later than February 1, 2020. This year, the Northwest Coin Club plans to judge the exhibits, and confer First, Second and Third place awards. Exhibits will be evaluated by judges using the criteria set forth in the EVALUATION FORM. In addition, there will be a “People’s Choice Award,” for the most popular exhibit as measured by the votes of Money Show attendees.
The 2020 Northwest Coin Club Money Show will run from March 20 to March 22, 2020.
All manner of exhibit formats will be welcome. Exhibits can be displayed vertically in a frame (like at the Minnesota State Fair), lie flat on a table top in one or more dealer cases (like at traditional coin conventions), or conform to the format of a “science fair” poster board triptych (like National Coin Week displays). Be sure to submit your Exhibit Application no later than February 1, 2020. Exhibits may be submitted via US Postal Service, email or in person at the NWCC Monthly Meetings.
Your EXHIBIT APPLICATION must reach the Exhibit Coordinator no later than February 1, 2020.

Thanks for visiting the website of the Northwest Coin Club! Our local club has a rich history in the promotion of coin collecting and the education of Minnesota collectors. Founded in 1934, the NWCC is the oldest coin club in the Minneapolis - Saint Paul area and thought to be the 2nd oldest “regularly meeting” club in the entire country! Education is the main reason our club exists and we are committed to providing local enthusiasts with the best and most current information available. If you are a serious collector -or just thinking about becoming serious- joining a local coin club can be the best step towards enriching your hobby of numismatics. But don’t let the word “serious” scare you. The NWCC is comprised mostly of true hobbyists who collect coins and currency simply for the joy of it. We are not primarily focused on “turning a quick profit” from our endeavors, but on learning long-term strategies, best practices and especially on having lots of fun along the way. If you are a coin collector in the Twin Cities Metro area, we highly recommend you attend one of our monthly meetings and experience the camaraderie, fellowship and education offered by the Northwest Coin Club!
