Long Beach, Calif. – June 12, 2019 – It’s hard to believe another Long Beach Expo Coin, Currency, Stamp and Sports Collectibles Show is in the books with the June 2019 summer show under wraps. Thank you to our show sponsors, exhibitors and visitors for making the June 2019 show a success!
We’re proud to share memorable show highlights including record show attendance numbers for opening day, a remarkable live U.S. Coins Signature Auction with the world’s largest collectibles auctioneer Heritage Auctions, a sell-out of June show Panda Commemoratives in honor of the 35th Anniversary of Panda Commemoratives, an exciting fan meet-and-greet autograph session with NFL Los Angeles Chargers’ Derwin James, and much more.
In case you missed any of the show attractions or were unable to attend this show, here is a full recap of all the June show events and attractions:
Show Highlights include:
The $30 million Tyrant Collection returned to the June expo back and better than ever with an unprecedented exhibit, entitled the “Tyrants of the Tiber.” The remarkable collection featured over 400 superb ancient Roman and Papal coins, ranging from Julius Caesar and the 11 other Caesars of long-ago Rome to the coinage of the Popes at the Vatican.
The world’s largest collectibles auctioneer, Heritage Auctions, hosted its Signature U.S. Coins Auction live at the expo.
In honor of the 35th Anniversary of Panda Commemoratives, the Shanghai Mint in China released a panda, which was on display and available for purchase through a lottery basis at the June Long Beach Expo. A show sell-out, the 5 oz. silver panda with a lunar year of the pig designed by former U.S. Mint Master Designer Thomas Cleveland, is the first issue in a 12-year lunar series.
Derwin James, Los Angeles Chargers AP First-Team All Pro, met with enthusiastic fans for an exclusive meet-and-greet session at the expo.
On display at the PCGS Set Registry booth was The Arthur V. Epstein Collection, a remarkable 140-coin, 100 percent complete, top-ranked set of both Circulation Strike (100 coins) and Satin Finish (40 coins) sets of Washington Statehood Quarters.
Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), the official grading service of the expo, hosted on-site coin grading competitions open to dealers, Collectors Club and young numismatists.
Additional show highlights included Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA) show grading specials, “Meet the Expert” sports sessions with Memory Lane Inc., Collectors Corner CoinSearch, free kids treasure hunt, daily coin and sports prize drawings, and more.
