First I wondered: Huh, "World Money Fair"? The WMF is in Berlin every year. ;)

So this show in Los Angeles is called World's Fair of Money ... Makes more sense since, for Americans, "world money" seems to be anything non-US, and a coin show in L.A. will hardly focus on that. But it sure is a major event. Too bad it's at a time of the year when Southern California is way too hot for me, hehe.

Just noticed that the ANA has a nice medal made on this occasion:



The reverse (on the right), oh well. But the obverse (left) I find attractive.

I couldn't understand what do they mean by this statement:'collect free coins from World Mints.' ???

Yes, the term is somewhat misleading. In Berlin (World Money Fair) they do pretty much the same thing: You can buy a coin passport (€10) and then pick coins up at different booths; in Berlin about 50 official/government mints are present. So the passport you pay for, while the coins are actually free - and you actually get them from world mints. Don't know what "World Mints" refers to in the case of the Los Angeles show, but I suppose that the result, ie. what you ultimately get, will be similar. :)
