Vicenza Numismatica

From 17 October 2008 to 19 October 2008

Among the most important European numismatic meetings, Vicenza Numismatic returns to the Exhibition centre for another fair. The continuing growth and success of the event lies partly in its collaboration with many important bodies, among which the medal collection of Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana, the Bank of Italy, The Italian Institute of Numismatic Studies, the Italian Numismatic Society, the Italian Mint, Ministry of Culture, and Treasury, and the Numismatic and Philatelic Union of Vicenza. Vicenza Numismatica is distinguished by its joining of both cultural and commercial factors: the fair is accompanied by several exhibitions and other linked events, as well as providing the opportunity for both Italian and foreign parties to meet and exchange information: the ideal location for experts, collectors, traders, as well as the simply curious, all welcome to discover the unexpected.

Vicenza Numismatica is one of the largest events which represent the history of the circulation of Italian coins: on show will be rare and in some cases unique and uncirculated examples.

The Vicenza Fair is also home to the International Awards of Vicenza Numismatica and Vicenza Palladio, which appraise the best coin minted during the preceding year, and the International Lifetime Achievement Award, presented to the artist whose career merits recognition through his designs for coins and medals. Opening times:Friday & Saturday 9:30a.m. - 6:30p.m.

Sunday 9:30a.m. 4:30p.m. Free entranceSource:
