Gold and Silver Expo 2011

On Friday, April 15th to Sunday, April 17th, The BNA hosted the largest coin show in Upstate New York: The Gold and Silver Expo 2011.  This three day event was filled with fun and activities for everyone.  There was food, prizes, youth activities, and a Coin Collecting Merit Badge Clinic for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.  The Gold and Silver Expo 2011 was held in Hamburg, New York (close to Buffalo) at the Erie County Fairgrounds.  All facilities at The Gold and Silver Expo are handicap accessible.

The Gold and Silver Expo had more than 100 tables and attracted over fifty dealers from across the north-eastern United States.  Most were coin dealers, but some also dealt in stamps and paper currency.   The Gold and Silver Expo had something for everyone!
