    May 18 - 20, 2017

    We are less than a week away from the 2017 convention and this year promises to be one of our best yet. In addition to our always popular Young Numismatist's program, we will also have educational programs by Steve Ellsworth, the Barber Coin Collector's Society and Liberty Seated Collector's Club. All programs are to be held on Saturday, please check at the entrance for more details!

    The GSNA journal has gone digital starting with the Winter 2017 edition. The new digital edition of the journal will be formatted to an 8.5” by 11” size, which can be easily printed for those that like to have a copy "in hand". Without being hampered by printing and postage costs, the digital edition also allows us to include more pictures and articles, since we will no longer be hampered by higher printing costs, and
    postage charges.
    For those who still want a printed copy, we will provide a cost effective printed copy (less color, photos, etc.) for a publishing surcharge of ten dollars per year.
    Initial response has been overwhelmingly positive. If you wish to have your journal sent via email, please contact us at and we will add you to our digital distribution list.
