Fairs and Conferences


There are two long established coin fairs held in Dublin – the modern IRISH INTERNATIONAL COIN FAIR which is traditionally held on a weekend in February and STAMPA & Coin Fair held in October.

These events are organised and run by a commercial venture which has no association with the Society. Both events take place at the RDS in Dublin. The venue is bright and spacious and attracts around 30-35 local and international dealers who set up well stocked and well lit tables.

The Society has traditionally participated in these by occupying a table where we are always delighted to meet up with members from around the country. The winning entry and some less successful ones from the January Visual Display competition are displayed. Members can renew membership and new members may join.

BANS - British Association of Numismatic Societies
Each year a group of members from the Society attend BANS, the congress of the British Association of Numismatic Societies. Annually, around Easter time, the Association holds its congress which is hosted by a member society. Typically the event is held at a location in the United Kingdom.

In 2006 The Numismatic Society of Ireland hosted the congress in Dublin at the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks, and at the nearby Ashling Hotel.
