Welcome to the 50th Annual New York International Numismatic Convention

Located in the heart of Manhattan's East Side near Madison and Fifth Avenue shopping destinations, Broadway theaters, Rockfeller Center and the United Nations, the Barclay remains Manhattan's premier luxury hotel after undergoing an ambitious restorations project within the past five years.
Our auction lot viewing schedule starts on Friday, January 7 and runs through Sunday, January 16. Our world and ancient specialty bourse area will run from Thursday, January 13 through Sunday, January 16.
