Heritage Auctions, the official auctioneer of the Long Beach Expo, is the world’s largest collectibles auction firm. Heritage hosts a multimillion dollar Signature Auction at every Long Beach show.

Ship of Gold Exhibit

One of the most fascinating attractions dropping anchor at the Long Beach Expo, is the collection of treasures from the S.S. Central America or “Ship of Gold.” This popular exhibit, showcasing millions of dollars in recovered gold coins, gold ingots, and other artifacts from the legendary S.S. Central America is back! Hear the story of the 280-foot-long sidewheel steamer that ran routes between Central America and the eastern seaboard of the United States during the mid-1850s.

"Meet the Expert" Sessions (Booth 846)

Meet the Expert sessions are an opportunity to get your coins, sports items, and banknotes appraised, and speak to experts known nationwide. Please note the different times for each session, and kindly keep items to a maximum of five to ensure our experts have time for everyone. Sessions take place each day of the show.

The Youth & Family Coin Experience Zone (Booth 458)

Each Long Beach Expo features a hands-on educational outreach booth that has been a part of the show since the mid 1980s. It offers many educational activities and free giveaways to start young collectors off on their collecting journey.
The Walt Ostromecki Youth Activities Corner booth also provides a multitude of free educational literature to encourage young collectors, families, scouts, and adults that will aid them to learn and grow in the hobby as well as local coin club meeting information and FREE coin appraisal service.

Long Beach Stamp Club Kids Korner (Booth 453)

In 1985, the Long Beach Stamp Club established a program for encouraging kids to become interested in stamp collecting as a hobby. At this time, our program is committed to having stamps for young collectors to collect and enjoy. Among other activities, the Long Beach Stamp Club Kids Korner helps kids increase their knowledge of the hobby, and we will raffle off a starter collection that a young collector can use to build a beautiful collection.

The Long Beach Coin Club (Booth 457)

The Long Beach Coin Club (LBCC) began in 1950 and has been fully active ever since. The LBCC is a non-profit educational and numismatic membership organization open to all ages. We promote and encourage the study and appreciation of numismatics and related subjects as a hobby for all collectors.
Our goal is to provide an organized outlet for disseminating information by word of mouth, speakers, open forums, and written publications. We are numismatic mentors, where we help new collectors through the maze of numismatics so fewer mistakes are made in their quest to collect or discover areas of interest.
