The 59th Annual Houston Money Show is coming up, and it’s going to be bigger and more exciting than ever. Sponsored by the Greater Houston Coin Club, the show will take place Thursday-Saturday, December 3-5, 2015 at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Hall E. The convention center is located at 1001 Avenida de las Americas, Houston, TX 77010.
Whether you are interested in buying or selling precious coins, bills or jewelry, this is a show you won’t want to miss. There will be over 250 dealer booths, and the show is offering free appraisal of coins and bills. Collectors will have more than enough to hold their interest, and some very unique signature coins are scheduled to be a part of this show through its Major Heritage Numismatic Auction. Among the coins up for auction are:
- 1652 Noe- 2 SHILING Oak Tree Shilling, MS64 (Lot 3002). With only 9 or 10 representatives known, this extremely rare CAC-endorsed Mint State piece is plated on Carl Wurtzbach’s 1937 photograph record, in the Noe reference, the Whitman Encyclopedia, and in the Salmon book. Current bid is $22,000.
- 1909-O Indian Half Eagle, MS62 (Lot 3348). From the Leon Hendrickson Collection, this 1909-O half eagle is the final gold issue produced at the New Orleans Mint and has the lowest circulation-strike mintage (34,200 pieces) of any date in its series. The grade of this coin is extremely rare and accounts for the high bid price. Current bid is $22,000.
- 1864 Seated Dollar, MS65+ (Lot 3233). This Civil War era silver dollar has been graded to be one on the finest of its kind to survive. Of the seated dollars still in existence, only 31 that have been graded are considered to be in Mint state and only 2 certified in MS65+. This is one of those two. Current bid is $15,000.
In addition to the signature coin auction, there will be educational presentations, competitive exhibits and displays, and family oriented events. The Houston Money Show is a perfect event to pick up numismatic books and supplies and some unique holiday gifts. Admission to the show is just $3.00 per day, cash only, and children under 17 are free. The first 1000 kids through the door will receive a free quarter. Hours will be 1 PM to 6:00 PM on Thursday, 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM Friday, and 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Saturday.
