All collectors are invited to exhibit coins, tokens, medals, paper money and other numismatic material at the 78th Anniversary Convention of the Central States Numismatic Society (CSNS), in Schaumburg.

Exhibits in nine (9) categories will be competing for U.S. gold eagles. Exhibit applications are due by April 15, 2017.

All exhibitors will receive a limited edition silver CSNS logo medal and a free Saturday awards breakfast ticket.

Four special awards will be presented at the awards breakfast:

  1. Best-of-Show: a one-ounce U.S. gold eagle housed in a deluxe Capital Plastics holder. The award named in honor of Florence Schook, long-time CSNS officer and mentor to hundreds of young collectors.
  2. Best Exhibit by a First-time Exhibitor: an uncirculated 1935 Swiss 20-franc gold coin and certificate, forever named in memory of Joseph and Morton Stack, pioneer New York City coin dealers.
  3. Most Educational Exhibit: an uncirculated 1/10 oz. U.S. gold eagle and certificate, forever named in memory of John Jay Pittman, famous collector and exhibitor from Rochester, NY.
  4. The Peoples' Choice Award: selected by visitors to the CSNS exhibit area; a 2017 U.S. proof set housed in a specially designed frame.

Please consider exhibiting your coins and/or other numismatic items at our 78th Anniversary Convention.
