Coin, Collectibles & Antique Show
Jan 6 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
Gateway Coin Club of San Antonio would like for you to join us Saturday, January 6th from 9am-6pm to step in the time machine and go back in time!
David Astwood ( Member of Gateway Coin Club) states: ” More and more people today are shopping online for rare coins, collectibles & antiques while staring at one blue-lit screen after another looking for a deal without realizing that they are missing outon the fun & experience of collecting. Pictures posted on internet marketplaces rarely show all the intricate details of a valuable collectible, and rob the buyer of the hand-ons experience of examining and handling a rare coin or collectible close up. The antique collector fails to experience the pleasure of running their fingers over the roughhewn surfaces of an antique fashioned over a century ago before plunking down their hard-earned cash. And all these collectors fail to share in the social experience and pleasure of swapping stories of great finds, asking questions about the family heirloom, or sharing the love of the hobby of collecting with others of like heart and mind. The member of Gateway Coin Club of San Antonio are seeking to remedy this situation by designing an event to turn hobby of collecting coins, collectibles and antiques into a meaningful celebration of all-things collectible for the entire family.”
The event will highlight coins, paper currency, bullion, postcards, stamps,vinyl records, historical memorabilia, comics, militaria, sport cards and collectibles, jewelry, autographs, railroad memorbilia, old advertising and antiques of all kinds plus much more. Members of the Gateway Coin Club and vendors at the event will be there to buy, sell & trade as well as answer any questions that visitors may have. The Food court at Wonderland of the Americas will have refreshments available. The event will also provide free parking for everyone in attendance, and there is no admission fee. The Gateway Coin Club hopes that everyone comes out and enjoys the experience of finding their special treasure of favorite collectible. This event is the first of its kind here in San Antonio and the club expects this new experience in collecting to become an exciting and highly anticipated annual event.
