Cash in for a Wealth of Knowledge at the Money Show

Cash some chips in tomorrow to catch the last day of the money show at the Colorado Convention Center. Some of the world’s most famous rare coins and paper money are on display for the National Money Show. It’s a big bang for your six-dollar buck! Here are the highlights.

Billion Dollar Case. You may think you are seeing double- but there really are 6 zero’s on the 5 million dollar Treasury note. Also in the display are 10,000 bills- the largest denomination of paper money produced in the United States.

    I think I shoulda have been at this.. up my street completely….as a kid I collected coins and still have a wee tin in my memory box full of shrapnel from around the world. Also a bit of a freak for postcards. can’t get enough of postcards and I feel compelled to purchase one whenever I see a stand…very odd person! lol. Thanks for sharing!
