Every second year the Numismatic Association of Australia (NAA) holds a conference in a major capital city, which gives an opportunity for coin collectors, dealers and those interested in numismatics to come together for the event. Held over 3 days, attendees can buy/sell/swap and display items of numismatic interest on the Friday of the event. The Saturday and Sunday timetable provides short talks about specific topics by numismatic luminaries, and their research and knowledge will be both entertaining and educational. An exclusive dinner will be held on the Saturday night where you’ll be able to bring your partner.
The sixth biennial conference is this year being held in Adelaide from 23rd-25th October 2015, at the Naval, Military and Air Force Club of South Australia (where smart casual dress is required). The location is 111 Hutt Street Adelaide City. If you’d like to participate in this event then you’ll need to register and pay the registration fee of $145 ($125 if you’re an NAA member). This includes entry for all three days of the event, all talks, the exclusive Saturday night dinner, savouries at the Friday night welcome function, Saturday and Sunday lunches, morning and afternoon teas and all day tea/coffee. It also includes a half table at the Friday afternoon bourse if you would like to sell, swap or display numismatic items -you’ll need to notify the NAA Secretary when you register to ensure a table is held for you. The only added cost is $75 if you wish to bring your partner to the Saturday night dinner.
Alongside the conference, the Numismatic Society of South Australia (NSSA), which is subsidising this event for attendees, has organised further activities for those interstate visitors who wish to take the time to see what Adelaide and South Australia have to offer. This includes a visit to the Army Museum and the Art Gallery of South Australia. Other interesting nearby activities are tours of Adelaide Oval or further afield you could visit Adelaide’s wine regions.
