Next PAN Coin Show is October 28 – 30, 2021 at the Monroeville Convention Center, 209 Mall Blvd, Monroeville PA 15146 (Pittsburgh suburb).  We are now located in the larger North Hall area of the convention center.

The Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists (PAN) is a non-profit educational state organization founded in 1978 consisting of individuals and coin clubs throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the United States.  The association is dedicated to promoting the hobby of coin collecting through coin shows, lectures, seminars, a published journal, and an electronic newsletter.  Our primary focus is learning the art, history, and world cultures through coinage, medals, and paper money.  PAN is a Life Member of the American Numismatic Association.

The Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists and PAN Secretary, Patrick McBride (Benjamin Franklin re-enactor) have created a GoFundMe page to raise money to bring renowned Abraham Lincoln actor, Dennis Boggs, to the American Numismatic Association’s World’s Fair of Money to be held at the Stephens Convention Center, in Rosemont (Chicago), IL on August 10 – 14, 2021.  The money generated will cover Dennis’ fee, airfare, hotel stay, etc.  Between GoFundMe and private donations, we have raised $2,300.  Our goal is to raise $4,000.

Lincoln and Franklin have appeared together previously charming the young and old alike with their wit, humor and historical tales.  They have together attended the Florida United Numismatists (FUN) convention in January of 2020 and the last ANA World’s Fair of Money, Chicago IL, in August of 2019.  Many dealers, vendors, and attendees enjoyed posing for photos with these grand historical figures, but most importantly, the children whose eyes lit up and tongues tied in the presence of Mr. Lincoln www.MeetMrLincoln.comor Dr. Franklin  was priceless.  Imagine being 10 years old and able to tell your teacher that you met President Lincoln or Dr. Franklin or BOTH!  What is a more wonderful gift than giving to our children the desire to learn through living history?  Young collectors are the future of the coin business, and we encourage you make a donation.

Small amounts are encouraged.  Ten dollars each from 200 donors will easily reach our goal.  Please consider a $5 Lincoln note or a $100 Franklin note to get these engaging characters to Rosemont this summer.  Mailed donations are also gladly accepted.  All monies are deposited into our PAN Foundation 501(c)(3) account and are tax deductible.  Make checks payable and mail to:      PAN      1985 Lincoln Way    Suite 23  #225      White Oak PA 15131
