Pieces from colonial times to today will be available to buy and sell at the Middle Georgia Coin Clubs 2014 Coin and Currency Show.
Held at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter in Perry, 125 dealers from the Southeast will converge to showcase their wares Friday through Sunday.
Youll have all different price levels from $1 to thousands of dollars, said Chip Davis, show chairman.
Some buyers will be just starting out, such as a child making his or her first purchase of a coin. Then there will be collectors who want to invest in the rare items.
Davis has been a dealer for 12 years and a collector for the last 27 years.
He attributes his love of history to why he was interested in currency.
The more you dig into it, the more you learn, he said.
His favorite personal piece is from the 1840s from the Macon City Council, at a time when cities used to print currency.
Part of the growing interest in collecting coins, stamps or paper money is the value the items gain over time.
Some people collect for the investment part of it, Davis said, though he added most collect items which interest them.
This year is the 52nd show for the Middle Georgia Coin Club.
Appraisers will be available to price items in addition to the opportunity for people to either buy or sell the items.
The show has grown in size, and Davis expects thousands of visitors to the fairgrounds.
Its a big tradition, he said.
