Gold and Silver Expo 2022

Updated: May 27, 2021

The Gold and Silver Expo 2021 has been postponed due to the continued restrictions imposed by state and local governments due to the coronavirus pandemic.

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 Knights 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.

Additionally, the format of the show may change in order to comply with regulations and laws. This may include the number of dealer tables allowed and the number of people that are allowed inside the show at any given moment. We ask for your patience and understanding as we try to provide the best and safest coin show experience possible.

Please check back frequently to see if the status has been updated.

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 Cheektowaga, New York (close to Buffalo) at The Knights Banquet facility. 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 60 tables and attracts over 40 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!
