See $100 million of historic rare coins, Georgia gold and "funny money" in Atlanta
The million-dollar penny in Atlanta! Lincoln cents were only supposed to be made of zinc-coated steel in 1943 because copper was needed for World War II efforts; however, a few were still mistakenly made with a bronze alloy. The finest known surviving example, that sold for $1 million in 2018, will be publicly displayed in Atlanta for the first time during the National Coin & Money Show at the Cobb Galleria Centre, February 27-29, 2020.

ATLANTA, GA.- The public can see more than $100 million of historic rare coins and colorful currency, including a $1 million penny, a $3 million nickel, historic Georgia gold coins and currency, and misprinted “funny money,” at the National Coin & Money Show® in the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, February 27-29, 2020. Plus, all visitors can find out what their old coins and currency may be worth.

“It’s a family-friendly, educational event sponsored by the non-profit American Numismatic Association (,” explained Col. Steve Ellsworth, president of the 25,000-member organization.

“Money is history you can hold in your hands, and you can see more than $100 million of historic numismatic treasures on public display at the National Coin & Money Show,” said Ellsworth.

Among the special exhibits from the American Numismatic Association Money Museum in Colorado Springs, Colorado is one of the world’s most famous rare coins -- one of the five known 1913-dated Liberty Head nickels. The face value is only five-cents but this legendary nickel is insured for $3 million.

Visitors can also see for the first time in Atlanta a unique World War II-era Lincoln cent made in 1943 of bronze alloy, rather than zinc-coated steel to conserve copper, that sold for more than $1 million two years ago. Other exhibits include rare gold coins struck in Dahlonega, Georgia in the mid-1800’s; examples of historic money issued by Atlanta banks a century ago; a fabled 1804-dated U.S. silver dollar insured for $4 million; and an exhibit of “funny money” -- $1 through $100 denomination bills mistakenly printed with various errors, such as upside-down or entirely missing serial numbers.

Attendees will have the opportunity to view and purchase from the United States Mint interesting and educational coins, medals as well as specialty items, such as uncut printing press sheets of paper money produced by the U.S. Treasury's Bureau of Engraving and Printing.

More than 350 dealers from the Southeast and across the United States will be buying and selling rare coins, vintage paper money, medals, tokens, and gold and silver. Many of the numismatic experts will provide free, informal evaluations of the public’s old coins and paper money.

Educational seminars and a children's treasure trivia game will be offered during the show, and youngsters – as well adults -- can put their face as the portrait on the front of a $100,000 bill.

Kagin’s ( of Tiburon, Calif. will conduct a public auction of rare coins and paper money.

Hosted by the Georgia Numismatic Association and the Metropolitan Coin Club, the National Coin & Money Show will be held in Hall D of the Cobb Galleria Centre at 2 Galleria Parkway in Atlanta. The show will be open Thursday and Friday, February 27 and 28, from 10 am to 5:30 pm, and on Saturday, February 29, from 10 am to 3:30 pm.

Admission Thursday and Friday is $8 for adults, children 12 and under admitted free. Admission is free for everyone on Saturday.
