September 24, 2015 – What began as a small fair on a local scale has long become an international numismatic major event: NUMISMATA is the keyword, the coin fair that attracts thousands of visitors and the most distinguished exhibitors from all around the world to participate in the different events taking place in Germany and Austria.
Most guests keep coming for decades and enjoy meeting their colleagues, their collector friends and their favorite dealer as well as pursuing their hobby and passion – whether classical numismatics or philately. For five years now, Berlin is not only the NUMISMATA venue: a stamp fair is conducted in the same exhibition hall. Giving the other collection area a try is thus an easy thing to do, the entrance ticket being valid for both fairs.
The 17th NUMISMATA Berlin offers a wide range not only to collectors of banknotes.
Every visitor will surely find something to his or her liking in Berlin on 17th and 18th October, 2015. As always, the NUMISMATA offers a broad array. Whether coins from ancient times or accessories, the range covers everything a collector could wish for: historical means of payment, coins from medieval and modern times, euro coins, precious metal, medals, primitive money, banknotes, shares and historical securities, artefacts, and much more. Numismatic literature which no collector could do without concludes the spectrum.
Anyone planning on getting an appraisal for his coin(s) is recommended to approach the grading service experts. Some of the world’s leading third-party coin grading companies will suit the needs of the collector who wishes his favorite items to be graded without much bureaucratic ado and encapsulated after the specialists have finished the grading process. This professional grading and encapsulation allows every coin enthusiast to quickly appraise the current market value of his coin.
Cover of the new fair catalog.
There will be a number of highlights at the Berlin fair. One such highlight is the complimentary new fair catalog, published by CoinsWeekly in co-operation with NUMISMATA. Already the previous NUMISMATA, held at Munich this year, presented its visitors with complimentary copies of the first issue focusing on the Bavarian Geschichsthaler (historical thaler) of Louis I. It was a great success which is likely to be followed up. The Berlin CoinsWeekly Special comprises a complete price guide to Prussian gold and silver coins of the German Empire, as well as many thrilling facts about the Berlin world of coins. This fair trade catalog is available at the 17th NUMISMATA Berlin only, while supplies last.
Berlin would not be the same without the State Mint. It goes without saying that the Mint will likewise be present at the NUMISMATA, with a booth that focuses on the 25th anniversary of the German reunification. From the lavishly illustrated book to the commemorative coin, the collector will find a wide spectrum of offers here.
