Lakeland, Florida Collectorama Coin and Currency Show this weekend

2 posts in this topic

The 60th Semi-Annual Lakeland, Florida Coin and Currency Show will be held at The

Lakeland Center, 701 West Lime Street, just west of downtown Lakeland. Over 100

dealers will be on hand to Buy, Sell, and Trade just about everything pertaining to

Numismatics, Precious Metals, and a lot of interesting and historical Neat Collectibles.

An event for the entire family, and all youngsters, 12 or under, get a daily dip into the

Kid's Bucket for a Free Hand Full of Money. Dealers and Collectors help keep the

Kid's Bucket filled up all weekend with generous donations of "numismatic goodies",

supplies, and reference material. Larger material will also be distributed to the

youngsters during the weekend.


The weather forecast for Lakeland is expected to be sunny, with daytime temperatures

in the mid-70's, and temperatures at night in the mid 50's. Show promoters guarantee

there will be no ice or snow. Wonderful weather to take a nice stroll around nearby

Lake Morton which is one of the best Wild Water Fowl Lakes in Florida. The Lakeland

Center is a modern and secure Convention Facility, with ample parking, and all

Collectorama Show participants get Free Parking by just mentioning Collectorama at

the parking booth. Guests will also receive Free Admission by bringing this notice to

show Registration.


Dealers without tables are welcome to attend the Thursday 4-8 P.M. "Special Bourse"

and gain entry with a $25.00 (minimum) donation, via company check, to the Florida

Youth Villa (Bartow, Florida). There will be a special presentation of how to make

Hobo Nickels all weekend, and the ICG Grading Company will be on hand for "verbal"

appraisals and submissions. There will be the usual tight security all weekend, and a

wide selection of popular Gold and Silver Eagles, Silver Dollars, Certified Coins and

Currency, Proof and Mint Sets, Medals and Tokens, and a large assortment of fun

and popular Paper Americana, Historical Documents, Jewerly, Diamonds, Disney,

and small Antiques.


The Lakeland Center is easily accessable from Orlando or Tampa, via I-4 taking the

Route 98 exit South. Route 98 will turn into South Florida Avenue, just before downtown,

and there is plenty of signs directing folks to The Lakeland Center. The host hotel for

the show is the Crestwood Suites, (Exit 33 off of I-4), and there are several small

restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.

calendars for the 61st Semi-Annual Collectorama Show, at the Lakeland Center, this

coming October 7-9, 2016.
