Why We Should Attend Coin Shows

For dealers to be on top of there game, they should attend or participate in coin shows. These shows are to coin dealers what a medical symposium might be to a doctor. As a dealer, it is important that you try to attend a few of these shows in a year. This is where the latest in the industry is discussed and announced. It is vital in helping the coin dealers and collectors abreast with the goings on of the coin world.

As a collector, your dealer attending these shows will open many avenues for you, as you will find out through the dealer what is on sale, where and for how much. You also know what collections are not up for sale. Dealers who attend these shows, will in the long run give better service to their clients because they know what’s happening as it happens. They also network with other dealers when at this shows. This is good for you as the client because that one day you want to buy a particular coin, he might know just which dealer to call up.

Coin dealers who miss out on these shows lag behind their colleagues, and they won’t have the latest information at hand. When your dealer is not part of a bigger establishment, they might not be able to afford attendance at all of these shows. What is important though is they get to attend some of the shows, for instance, the ones that are thought to be the most important shows in the region. One should not negate the abilities of a small town dealer. Many a time, you will find that they do what they do for the love of it, and attending all the coin shows will not matter at the end of the day.
