Coin Club to host show

ALBANY -- Address Warren of Albany is on the road about 35 weekends of each year, selling coins and other items she offers from her company, Albany Coin and Jewelry Company LLC.

This weekend, Warren will stay in town, but she'll still be involved in the coin business as chair of the 4th annual Albany Coin & Money Show. Warren is a member of the hosting organization, Coin Club of Albany.

Warren said about 30 vendors are expected for the show, which will be conducted at the Knights of Columbus building at 2009 Gillionville Road. Show hours are from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Saturday and from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Sunday.

Admission is $1 at the door, with children under 12 admitted free.

The vendors will be selling a wide variety of coins, paper money, foreign currency and ancient coins, Warren said.

While the emphasis for the vendors is on selling their merchandise, Warren said many of them have storefront coin businesses and are usually in the market to purchase coins.

"You can come to a professional and find out what your coins are actually worth," she said. "Some people do appraisals at the show and not charge you for it."

Warren said the coin professionals cannot handle appraisals for large coin collections at the show, however arrangements can be made for the appraisals at a later date.

In addition the currency, some vendors will be buying and selling gold, silver, civil war tokens, scrap gold and silver jewelry, foreign coins, ancient coins, collections, state quarters, presidential dollars, proof sets, gems, minerals, fossils and jewelry.

Also, members of the Albany Coin Club will be selling various coins through the sale of raffle tickets.
