Annual Coin Show - January 15-16, 2022

The BECC held its 57th annual coin show January 15-16, 2022 at the Kent Commons, 525 4th Avenue North, Kent, Washington. The show is the second largest in the Northwest with about 60 dealers participating (less this year - see below) and arguably the best liked show as well.

Wooden nickels and elongated cents with the 767-300 Freighter design were available at the 2022 coin show until supplies were exhausted. (One free wooden nickel and one free elongated cent per show attendee. Additional cents can usually be purchased.)

See 1st Q 2022 Boeing Employees' Coin Show edition of The Nor’wester, with an article pertaining to American Legion School Award Medals. Free paper copies were available at the show. The Nor'wester is the quarterly publication of the Pacific Northwest Numismatic Association.

Although the 2021 BECC coin show was cancelled due to the ongoing virus outbreak, the PNNA still published the 1st Quarter 2021 edition of The Nor’wester, with an article pertaining to “numismatic show & tell,” including items which would normally be shown to Scouts at the Boeing show.

2022 BECC Coin Show Report by Tony Kalt, Coin Show Chair

Well, the show is done, and I’d like to thank everyone who helped out and volunteered. It was good to see everyone from the club pitch in and pull together to help setup/cleanup, front desk etc. to make what a lot of the dealers called a successful show.

As one of the show chairs, it was proving interesting right up to the door closing for the dealers coming in. The floor plans just kept changing starting the week prior to the show. The layout was changing daily if not twice a day due to dealers adding or dropping for a variety of issues from weather issues with water coming into the shop that they had to deal with to getting sick and possible having COVID. “Fluid and Flexible” – that ended up being the motto of the day/week. The show was about half the size of our normal show.

At times it was interesting at the front having to enforce King County vaccine mandate, but overall it went well. We have the security bill yet to pay but it looks like we broke even. Since the dealers I talked with were pleased, it was worth all the effort even if we didn’t make a bigger profit for the club this year.

Attendance was a lot lower than I would have liked, but the people that did show seemed to be spending time and money with the dealers. We had 30-35 YNs show up and they enjoyed visiting the table and spinning for a prize as well as getting a current type set of coins from cent to dollar.

That makes for a quick summary – see ya next year at the show!
