Posted

WEBB CITY, Mo. — The Route 66 Coin, Gold and Silver Show, Joplin’s oldest local coin show, is returning to the Continental Banquet Center, 2802 N. Range Line Road on the last Saturday in September.

“We are back for our fourteenth edition of this annual event that features local and regional numismatists gathering to share their collections with the coin collectors in this area,” said Dave Sorrick, owner of In God We Trust LLC, the sponsor of the hobby event. “And we are delighted to return to the Granny Shaffer’s Restaurant banquet center on Saturday, Sept. 30 to host our unique event.”

The focus of the one-day annual show is on the hobby of coin collecting, silver and gold stacking and the pursuit of exciting and unique currency from yesteryear. With over twenty tables of merchandise for sale or trade, local coin and currency collectors will find a wide variety of items of interest.

“Many of our local friends will return to display their collectibles and will be joined by a group of new dealers making their first appearance at our event,” Sorrick said. “This show will be the largest in a few years reminiscent of our pre-pandemic hobby shows. The public is invited to attend and can offer their collections for sale to the dealers in attendance.”

The show will open at 9 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 30 and continue to 4 p.m. There is no admission fee and parking is free. Members of the Pittsburg Coin Club will greet all visitors and offer tickets to a 50/50 cash drawing to be held at 3 p.m. day of the event. Free door prizes will be offered to the first 20 collectors to enter at 9 a.m.
