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.
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.
