Yes Sir, 2014 this morning. The others from previous years... they give these away at the entrance.

I have a lot of numismatic related pieces, including a number from the Texas Numismatic Association. I acquired them from other collectors, never having had the opportunity to attend the show personally. I live in New Jersey, so it's quite a hike for me.

I attend a fair number of conventions during the year, but never go further then the three shows in Baltimore. Most of my exonumia isn't photographed so I don't have any pictures to post. If I get the chance I'll go through my boxes and pull a few out to image. Collecting this kind of material is a secondary interest of mine, but still very interesting.

Thanks for posting your medals.

Just met two medical students from TX on a train to Vienna. Neither had a TX accent. Both wanted to see the art of Klimt. One was interested in the architecture of Hundertwasser but the other at least had one old-fashioned Texan interest: eating large quantities of meat, even in the form of Wiener schnitzel. :) The parents of one of them were born in India, the parents of the other in Vietnam. Texas is changing, these medals are not.

I have about a dozen TNA medals, so picked out a couple that were a bit different. The second one isn't really a medal, so I'll just call it a token.
 The "Mercury Dime" is very small at only 20mm. These were made by the Gallery Mint in Eureka Springs, AR. for the 2000 TNA show. This private mint was in operation from 1992 until 2007. I believe the reason for their closure was the death of Joe Rust, one of the founding partners.

Wow, those are some nice tokens...thanks for posting them. The theme looks very different from the recent ones
I have also seen some TNA tokens, struck in silver, from the very early years

I didn't know they issued any in silver. My small one isn't silver , but some type of white metal.
