From 31 January to 2 February 2020 a who’s who of the coin world will be meeting up in Berlin: International mints and companies from the coin industry, coin dealers and auction houses, numismatic publishers, organisations and societies.

Guest of Honour: Japan Mint

The guest of honour from the far east, the Japan Mint, will be presenting to you the coins for this year’s Summer Olympics and inviting you to experience facets of Japanese culture, such as the tea ceremony and calligraphy.

Many New Issues Will Be Launched

The Greek Mint will be presenting a 5-euro silver coin of the girl Myrtis, whose features have been reconstructed using an elaborate 3-D procedure. The mintage will be no more than 2,500 copies.

A further highlight awaits you at the stand of the Belgian mint: The coin set “Belgian Specialities”, limited to 500 copies, is available this year for the theme “Belgian Pommes Frites”.

You can expect a very special coin presentation at the stand of the Czech Mint, on 31.01. at 1:30 pm: look forward to a surprise.

At the stand of the French Mint the Mint Director Marc Schwartz and Creative Designer Joaquin Jimenez will each be giving a 30-minute autograph session for you on all three days of the fair. On top of this there will also be an exclusive WMF set for the 2-euro “Charles de Gaulle” coin.

From the US Mint there will be the brand-new silver “American Eagle” in proof and a “Liberty” coin minted in platinum, also in proof. The Mint Director David Ryder looks forward to seeing you and will be happy to show you the extensive range!

The Royal Mint of the Netherlands will be presenting a new minting of a silver “Ducaton” at its stand on 31.01. at 4 pm. You will also be invited to estimate how many tulips there are in a vase!

At the World Money Fair the Mint of Finland will be taking coin collecting into the digital age and offering new services with a special coin-collecting app – this is sure to delight coin collectors all over the world!

Germany’s Verkaufsstelle für Sammlermünzen will of course also be presenting its coin range for 2020. Trade various editions in mint condition at their face value; while stocks last!

At the MDM stand, a trip through 50 years of history starts with the 1972 Olympic Games – this will, of course, be combined with a competition. Have fun in the turbulence machine or lift one of the genuine 12.5 kg gold bars again. In the glass safe, a Canadian Maple Leaf Fractional Set awaits its winner.

The Professional Association of the German Coin Trade, “Berufsverband des Deutschen Münzenfachhandels e.V”, will be offering a limited number of the first German 10-euro polymer coins in the series “Air Moves”, which you will be able to trade at the face value — while stocks last! The popular identification service for your coin collection will also be there again.

There is a very special highlight in store for you on 31.01.2020 at 11:30 am in hall C 5: 500 years of Thaler Minting!
