On Friday Jarred and I went to the Colorado Springs Coin Show at the Phil Long Expo Center. Wow. There were more than 120 tables filled with gold & silver coins of all type, old and valuable paper money, books, supplies, tokens, medals and even gold and silver bullion. Admission abd parking are free. It is a great event whether you are looking for a great hobby for you and your children or for those who taken it much more seriously. I bought an old silver certificate from 1899, some silver dollars and buffalo head nickles and indian head pennies. You can buy everything from gold coins to dinosaur teeth and everything in between. On Saturday the show runs from 9:00 - 6:00 and on Sunday from 9:00 - 4:00. Stop by and learn a lot about our history or make an investment. There will also be vendors who can value coins that you already own.
