Gold and Silver Expo 2021

Updated: August 25, 2020

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to affect events throughout Western New York, our highest concern is for the safety of our members and guests at our coin shows. The Erie County Fairgrounds and The BNA will comply with the various local and state agency mandates. During this time of unprecedented uncertainty, we ask for your understanding and consideration as we try to ensure the safety of all individuals. A decision will be made as the time for our Gold and Silver Expo 2021 gets closer.

Gold & Silver Expos

Each spring, in April, The BNA hosts the largest coin show in Upstate New York: The Gold and Silver Expo. This three-day event is filled with fun and activities for everyone. There is food, prizes, youth activities, and a Coin Collecting Merit Badge Clinic for Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and interested siblings. The Gold and Silver Expo is conveniently located in Hamburg, New York (close to Buffalo) at the Erie County Fairgrounds. All facilities at The Gold and Silver Expo are handicap accessible and the general public is welcome to attend.

The Gold and Silver Expo has approximately 100 tables and attracts over fifty dealers from across the north-eastern United States. Most are coin dealers, but some also deal in stamps and paper currency. Come by yourself or bring the family. The Gold and Silver Expo will have something for everyone!
