(Santa Ana, California) – The Long Beach Expo, the longstanding collectibles show in Southern California, will be held February 1-3, 2024, at the Long Beach Convention Center. The first Long Beach Expo was held in 1964 and has grown over the years to become one of the biggest collectibles shows on the West Coast. Thousands of visitors along with hundreds of dealers attend each Long Beach Expo buying and selling coins, sports cards and memorabilia, trading cards, banknotes, and many other collectibles.
“We are proud the Long Beach Expo is marking 60 years,” said Professional Coin Grading Service President Stephanie Sabin. “Over the decades the show has seen many changes, but the one thing that has remained constant over all that time is the focus the expo has on celebrating collectibles. Coins, stamps, banknotes, sports memorabilia, bullion – you name it. This show has it.”
Lot viewings for the multimillion-dollar Heritage Auctions U.S. Coins Signature Auction sale will take place at Booth 429. Attendees will also have a rare West Coast opportunity to purchase coins directly from the United States Mint, which will have a booth on the floor. Newly purchased coins can be submitted to Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA) will be present for onsite submissions of cards, autographed sports memorabilia, and more.
Sean Rich of Pawn Stars and Lords of War will be at the Long Beach Expo with an incredible display of treasure items and historic relics that have appeared in major Hollywood feature films and television documentaries. Many of these items will be familiar to attendees, and Rich will be answering questions and sharing stories about the many pieces on display.
Collectors of coins, banknotes, and sports memorabilia can get their questions answered in Meet the Expert sessions hosting coin authority Steve Feltner, banknote specialist Philip Thomas, and Memory Lane sports maestro Dan Wulkan.
The Kids’ Treasure Hunt brings together families with fun trivia and exciting prizes, while giveaways of coins, banknotes, and sports memorabilia will occur daily at 2 p.m. with those present upon drawing qualified to win.
“The Long Beach Expo has been on top of collectors’ calendars for six decades,” remarked Professional Coin Grading Service Director of Events Samantha Dark. “It’s a landmark event here in Southern California, but we also find many who travel from all up and down the West Coast to attend – not to mention the scores who come from across the country and even overseas to buy, sell, and trade here. The attendants are diverse both demographically and in their collectibles backgrounds, which is something that is distinctive about this show year in and year out. There’s something here for everyone.”
