A fun filled family event! Children are given free foreign coins to learn about currency and foreign countries. More than 30 dealers from several surrounding states are on hand to appraise, buy, sell and trade coins, currency and other numismatic items.
Don McNeely of Gold History Corporation associated with the Reed Gold Mine just outside of Charlotte, NC demonstrates gold panning. As a 30-year veteran prospector, Don is fascinating to speak with as well as an excellent teacher of proper panning techniques. Spectators are able to pan for their own gold!
