The Collectorama Show, Inc. News Release For Immediate Distribution


Business is expected to be very brisk at the upcoming 52nd Semi-Annual Collectorama Coin, Currency, Antique and Collectibles show, this February 17-19, 2012, at the Lakeland Center, 701 West Lime Street, just west of downtown Lakeland, Florida. Precious metals prices continue to be amazingly active, with a huge demand for all the popular Gold, Silver and Platinum precious metals items, such as American Gold Eagles, Canadian Maple Leafs, South African Krugerrands, Mexican Pesos, Chinese Pandas, and a wide assortment of Silver Bars, Silver Dollars, 90% and 40% Silver Coins, War Nickels, and much, much more.


Well over 100 National dealers will be on hand to buy, sell and trade all types of bullion related and precious metals material, as well as all kinds of Collector Coins, Numismatic Investment Coins, Certified Coins, Currency, Paper Americana, Floridiana, Confederate and Civil War material, Watches, Diamonds, Jewelry, Postcards, Error Currency, Disney Dollars, Stamps and Postal History, and many catagories of Neat Collectibles and Antiques of every description. There will also be a hobby supply dealer on hand.


Unlike the fly-by-night “Cash for Gold” people, or the gypsy hotel buyers (here today–gone tomorrow), the Collectorama Show attracts many long-time numismatic experts and professional dealers. Many of these very competitive dealers have attend every Collectorama Show (52) in the past 26 years, and are available to make fair offers, or share information, on just about anything that is brought in by the public and other dealers. There is always a great selection of scarce and rare material available for sale at Collectorama, and there will be an amazing amount of historical and interesting material on display. The Collectorama Coin and Currency Show is a very enjoyable event for the entire family. Be sure to wear your “trading hat” and come on down for some great deals and strong offers.


The Collectorama Show is open to the public Friday and Saturday, from 10 A.M. to 6 P.M., and on Sunday from 10 A.M. to 4 P.M. Thursday’s at Collectorama are for dealer’s only, which includes dealer set-up and special wholesale only bourse, from 4 p.m to 8 p.m.. Dealers who wish to come in for wholesale business gain entry with a $25.00 (Minimum) donation, via company check, to The Florida Youth Villa, in Bartow, Florida. Dealers must also have a current sales tax number, and bring along a business card. A Free Verbal Appraisal Clinic will be held all day on Sunday, and guests are urged to bring in any type of Coins, Currency or Collectible material they wish to have identified or evaluated by expert dealers who will be attending.


All youngsters, 12 or under, get a daily dip into the Collectorama Show’s special Kid’s Bucket, for a Free Hand Full of Money, and larger items such as reference material and supplies will also be distributed. There is always Free Parking for Collectorama Show attendees and hourly door prizes all weekend. There is a $3.00 Admission Fee (Good for the Weekend), and a special show Souvenir Card will be available at $4.00 that depicts an attractive T-20 Confederate Note. Other special features will be announced. BRING THIS ANNOUNCEMENT FOR FREE ADMISSION. Just mention Collectorama Show to the parking attendant for Free Parking.


Dealers and guests are excited concerning the Collectorama Show’s new Host Hotel, which will be The Terrace Hotel, at 329 East Main Street, in downtown Lakeland. The Terrace Hotel also has a great Five Star restaurant, and is within walking distance of The Lakeland Center, and close to all downtown Antique Shops, Coffee Houses, restaurants, and a short walk to Lakeland’s wonderful lakes and wild bird sanctuaries. The Terrace Hotel offers all show attendees an excellent room rate of only $89.00. Call: 863-688-0800

I haven't been to this show in quite a few years but it has a reputation locally as a great show. If you're in the area you might want to stop in.
