WOW these pictures are amazing !!! :w00t:
 
This has to be the “coin show of all coin shows” how can a coin convention be any better than this? What an absolutely fantastic display of numismatics ! I would love to have been here.

Does this convention happen every year in Hong Kong?

Also is there a benefit (other than seeing such a vast array of coins & meeting people) regarding prices or would you pretty much pay the normal or expected prices for coins?
 
I’m curious since there is so many people and so many items if there may be some really good deals that could be picked up?

It's Hongkong peeps, a country where there're mountains of people in small space.
Comeaux: According to what I heard, there're 2 big coin shows in hongkong each year. One in April (Spring) and the other one in August.

My question would be: is there any coin show in hongkong in October / November?

There will be an important show in Hong Kong at the beginning of December. Word is that it will have spectacular exhibits of Chinese coins as well as dealer tables. I'm not sure of this yet, but you might need an invitation to get in – it's aimed at the upper end of the market. I will post more information as I get it.

Best wishes,

Hi comeaux

Yes there are two shows each year - in April and August.

Re prices, it really depends on which coins you are looking for.  :laugh:

Hi Panda Halves

Those are gifts from a Hong Kong distributor called Ocean Gold Coins. I have got more than a dozen but sent to my friends in China. Let me ask their company first.

Thank you for the information and pictures. How expensive are hotels if one wants to travel to Hong Kong to attend the shows? Thanks.

Hi r3globe
For the show at end of August, Holiday Inn was charging HKD1500+ per night, but another hotel pretty close (within 5 mins walk) was around HKD1000.

Also keep in mind HK holiday inn was a 4 star hotel IMO. I was amazed how nice it was!!  Did not come close to the holiday inns in the states, which

I would never book!

HK is small. so you dont really have to live in that same hotel. U can get to Holi Inn of TST pretty much within 30 Min for most part of HK.

i was wondering, during HK international coin convention, how was the sales of gold & silver in china market? what do they buy the most?
Something with reasonable price or high premium coins?
