It's 2017!

It's all steam ahead into the New Year with the New York International (NYINC) starting on January 12 at the world renowned Waldorf Astoria Hotel on Park Avenue (for four days but we probably wont be there on the Sunday, we want to do some sight seeing!) and then the (old) York Coin fair on January 20-21 at the Knavesmire Stand at York Racecourse (this means We won't make the Yate medal fair on January 22, not straight after York but we will be there the next time!) After that it's the London Coin Fair on February 4 and then Dublin a couple of weeks later - after that we are into the Spring...we hope to see you at at least one of these shows...keep checking this website or COIN NEWS/MEDAL NEWS to see where we will be next.
