NENA 77th Conference and Convention Meets October 2nd

On Saturday, October 2, 2021, the New England Numismatic Association will hold its 77th annual Conference and Convention in conjunction with the New Hampshire Coin and Currency Expo at the DoubleTree by Hilton, 700 Elm Street, Manchester, New Hampshire. Ample parking is available at the Center of New Hampshire Parking Garage, with an entrance off Elm Street.

There will be a NENA Club table where “experts” are available to help you identify and estimate the value of your numismatic items. Also available are applications for NENA membership, publications and opportunities to buy this year’s convention medal. The theme for this year’s medal is “Woodsides to Steelsides,” honoring New England’s shipbuilding legacy and picturing the “Luther Little” four-masted schooner built in Somerset, MA, and the four-stacker destroyer “U.S.S Crowninshield” built in Bath, ME, both built in the early 20th century.

Due to Covid, the Young Numismatist program normally part of the conference events will not be held this year. However, there will be a place at the NENA table where youngsters will be able to pick up “Goodie Bags” full of coins, coin supplies and reading materials and ask questions of the NENA members at the table.

Numismatic Exhibits have been prepared for your viewing pleasure and education. Stop by and vote for your favorite.
