Despite the dynamic global economic environment, the purchasing power of collectors remains strong, which bodes well for the 6th Hong Kong Coin Show (HKCS). As the leading numismatic fair in Asia, the Hong Kong Coin Show strives to move the numismatic industry forward. This is reflected by multiyear efforts to recruit new exhibitors from different countries, including Colombia, Nepal and Paraguay, and the growth of different numismatic events including seminars and workshops as well as a guided tour. The three-day show offers much more than might be expected; it not only provides opportunities to buy and sell, but also the chance to learn more about the hobby and the history behind the various collectibles.
To attract the attention of both exhibitors and potential visitors, the event has revamped the website and is reaching out through social media, including a Facebook fan page, Instagram and LinkedIn, etc. The social media accounts are updated weekly so that fans and newbies know the latest news of the industry and the event.

New seminars and exhibitions
Seminars and exhibitions made their debut in the 4th Hong Kong Coin Show as a way to educate the public and nurture the next generation of numismatic enthusiasts. Participants were able to learn about the latest trends in the hobby as well as increase knowledge in specific areas. The response to these additions were very positive and the organizers will continue to hold seminars, workshops and guided tours to encourage sharing knowledge, exchanging ideas and developing young collectors. The fundamentals of the numismatic industry and the historical aspects of coins and banknotes will also be a focus, and some of the exhibitors will work with HKCS to introduce their collections to the students. The aforementioned events will be held on the afternoon of the second day, 24 August 2019.
