Among the other popular and cultural initiatives of the Hong Kong Coin Show, this year a new program dedicated to university students was introduced, which consists of an overview of collecting in general, followed by a brief visit to some retailers who explain an inherent topic to numismatics.

As was to be expected, the organization of the event was excellent. There’s no other way to put it. After I had registered for the convention, I immediately received a detailed and extremely friendly email with tips and suggestions on how to best organize my stay. Needless to say, the badge required for attending the convention was ready to be picked up upon my arrival.
Segnaliamo questo grande convegno internazionale con una nutrita lista di espositori europei e da tutto il mondo. Questo appuntamento rappresenta per noi europei una importante occasione di entrare nei mercati orientali che sono in forte espansione anche nel settore numismatico.
Twice each year, active coin dealers and collectors converge on the 18th Floor of The Mira Hotel in Hong Kong for an exciting numismatic event. The biannual Hong Kong Coin Show (HKCS) takes place in March / April and August and features not only buying and selling but also seminars, workshops, exhibitions, and a guided tour for university students. This well-attended event is organized by four partners: Stack’s Bowers and Ponterio Co. Ltd., Spink & Sons Ltd., Shouxi.com and Coin-In-Coin, who are leading companies in their respective fields. The HKCS is regarded as the top numismatic show in Asia.
Since its inaugural show in August 2016, HKCS has grown to include over 100 top numismatic organizations and individuals from over 45 countries and regions. The three-day show attracts over 5,000 visitors, providing a solid client base for trade and exchange of ideas. The HKCS helps to make Hong Kong a world-class numismatic hub for auctions and coin shows. The show sets the standard as Hong Kong moves forward as a world-class coin center and an enhancement to numismatic globalization.
Business in the modern Chinese coin market kicks off for many United States-based dealers with the Hong Kong Coin Show (HKCS), the first major show of 2018 in that bustling city of 7.3 million. The anticipation is high for the fourth iteration of this event, as the show was sold out of dealer tables back in January. There has been much positive activity domestically in the United States rare coin market, but it remains to be seen if that momentum can carry over into Asia.
Fresh from a very successful Singapore International Coin Fair 2017 (SCIF) held at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre (March 24th-26th), Emporium-Antiquities.com is privileged to once again participate in The 2nd Hong Kong Coin Show HKCS held at the Mira Hotel Kowloon (7-9th April).
The third week of August was a very busy one in Hong Kong. The first four days started off with a series of local auctions, starting with Stack’s Bowers’ and Ponterio on Monday and finishing with Spink on the Thursday. The inaugural Hong Kong Coin Show (HKCS) followed immediately on Friday, August 19 and was an immediate success. The show had over 100 exhibitor tables and many industry related components other than the usual buying and selling.
