1 post in this topic

The 56th Semi-Annual Lakeland, Florida Collectorama Coin and Currency

Show will be held next weekend, February 14-16, 2014 at The Lakeland

Center, 701 West Lime Street, just west of downtown Lakeland. Many

national and Florida dealers will be in attendance to buy, sell and

trade a wide range of rare coins and currency, bullion Gold, Silver

and Platinum, Certified Coins, Proof and Mint Sets, Gold and Silver

Eagles, Collector Coins, Medals and Tokens, and many different

catagories of fun and popular Collectibles and Paper Americana.


Bring this notice and present it to Registration for Free Admission

and just mention "Collectorama" at the parking booth for Free Parking.

The show is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. or Friday and

Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Visiting dealers

gain entry to the show's Special Bourse and dealer setup from 4-8

p.m. on Thursday for a $25 (min) donation to Florida Youth Villa.


There will be Coin and Currency dealers attending from Wisconson,

Illinois, Ohio, Missouri, Texas, Tennessee, Michigan, Georgia and

other states, and a well rounded group of Florida Dealers as well.


Youngsters, 12 or under, will get a daily dip into the Kid's Bucket

for a Free Hand Full of Money, and other supplies, books, etc. will

also be distrubuted to the youngsters. Dealers and collectors help

keep the Kid's Bucket filled up with "numismatic goodies" all weekend.


Lakeland is located just off of Florida Interstate I-4 about half

way between Orlando and Tampa, and is easily accessable from I-4 via

Route 98 South, that then turns into South Florida Avenue, and the

downtown Lakeland area. The Lakeland Center is also within walking

distance of some of Lakeland's lakes and amazing wild bird sanctuaries.

The host hotel is The Terrance Hote (sold out) that features a great

5 Star Restaurant, and is only minutes from the show and close to all

the downtown Lakeland restaurants, night spots, and fun activities.

Many Coin and Currency dealers from the north attend Lakeland and

enjoy the mid-70's warm weather and "hot business" during the show.


There will be hourly door prizes all weekend, and a free "appraisal

clinic" on Sunday for Coins, Currency and Collectibles. IGC will

be on hand for free verbal appraisals and accepting submissions for

for Certification and Grading. There will also be an interesting

"Hobo Nickel" demonstration on how Hobo Nickels are made, and many

youngsters will get the opportunity to make their own Hobo nickel.


While the Collectorama Show is primarily a Coin and Currency Show,

many of the attending dealers save up their Neat Collectibles for

Collectorama as the show attracts a strong public attendance who

buy and sell some pretty amazing Collectible and Historical goodies.

Collectorana is a great show for the entire family, with a virtual

museum on display of America's historical past.


All of the 2014 U.S. Mint Products, that have already been issued,

will be available at the show, including 2014 Uncirculated and

Proof Silver Eagles, and several of the new U.S. Mint Proof Sets.

A wide variety of the new and exciting 1 oz.Copper Rounds and

Copper Bullets will be available. Other areas of Collectibles

will include Postcards, Estate Jewelry (Karat and Costume), Stamps

and Postal History, Diamonds, Disney, Floridiana, Civil War Items,

Columbian Exposition Material, World's Fair, Fossils, Ancients,

Slave Documents, Military Items, and a host of great material.
