YNS will hold a Congress at the Old Swan, in parallel to the Harrogate Spring Fair, 15-16 March 2019, to celebrate its 110th year. A number of speakers, including John Philpotts, Tony Abramson, Barrie Cook, Adrian Marsden, Frances Simmons, Richard Abdy, Richard Fynes, Rob Tye and Pam West will illustrate their chosen topic by reference to a dozen or so readily available coins, which the audience can then search out among the traders present at the fair.
The appeal will be broad, placing coins in their historical context and conversely illustrating history through coinage. We will promote the event to collectors, historians, detectorists, and local residents with the aim of offering engaging talks spread throughout the fair, introducing newcomers to the delights of collecting and providing a stimulus to dealers to continue attending the fair.
The coin fair, now organised by John & Sophie Philpotts of Silbury Coins, is now fully booked with several new exhibitors joining the regulars.
