Annual Coin Show - January 18-19, 2020

The BECC held its 56th annual coin show January 18-19, 2020 at the Kent Commons, 525 4th Avenue North, Kent, Washington. The show is the second largest in the Northwest with about 60 dealers participating and arguably the best liked show as well.

Wooden nickels and elongated cents with the 777-9 Mustang design were available at the 2020 coin show until supplies were exhausted. (One free wooden nickel and one free elongated cent per show attendee. Additional cents can usually be purchased.)

2020 BECC Coin Show Report by Tony Kalt, Show Co-Chair

For the most part I had positive feedback about the show. Most people enjoyed it and we had over 650 people attend. Dealer traffic was really good on Saturday and as typical of the past few years, Sunday was a slower day.

Thanks to all the volunteers who helped with set up and clean up. All went well, as did the dealer check in. Actually, it all went well enough that Ill stick around as chair for next year and see what improvements we can make with attendance. We did the normal advertising (newspaper, reader board, magazines, and no radio) and a little on social media. My sister in law helped with the social media part for me. Advertising and attendance was my main concern. I appreciate those who stepped up early on when I said Id volunteer to take over the position when they said they would help handle the advertising for me this year.

The scouting merit badge workshop was both days and there averaged 6 scouts and a couple adults listening on each day. The YN Treasure hunt saw 78 kids. They had fun looking for the BU 2019 U.S. type set. A number of the kids have been coming back each year to add to their collections.

If you have suggestions for things I can improve on or do things differently, please let me know. Yes, I plan on getting an earlier start with the next one.
