Coinex Trade Show
Coinex numismatic trade show is an annual event held every September in London. It marks one of the most anticipated events of the British calender for avid coin collectors and enthusiasts. Organisers, The British Numismatic Trade Association (BNTA) are opening up the event to more dealers than ever, promising excellent choices for collectors and investors alike. 2023 is a special year as it marks 50 years of the BNTA and more than 4 decades of the Coinex event.
The BNTA was first formed all the way back in 1973 in order to help the nation’s community of coin dealers engage with the government on tax issues impacting their industry, while also attempting to stamp out forgery and counterfeit coin operations.
Just five years after its formation it launched the first Coinex event, traditionally hosted in the heart of the capital at hotels and event centres near Mayfair. 2023 marks the BNTA’s 50th anniversary and it’s considered as the most prestigious UK precious metals trade association.
Coinex is traditionally held each year at The Ballroom of The Biltmore Hotel, Mayfair, Grosvenor Square, London W1K 2HP. This at the Millennium Hotel, London, Mayfair. This venue is rebranded from the old Millennium Hotel. The hotel has was recently upgraded to a five-star status following an extensive renovation and facelift. Today, the prestigious hotel at 44, Grosvenor Square, Mayfair is part of the Hilton group. The hotel has been renovated at a cost of £50 million through 2018 and will celebrate its brand-new opening in September 2019. The BNTA believes that it will be an ideal location for Coinex for years to come. The luxurious new conference halls will mean that a larger line-up of coin dealers and attendees can be accommodated. With excellent public transport links, secure delivery access and the perfect positioning for people who want to explore London as well as buying gold coins, the Biltmore, Mayfair should be an ideal setting for Coinex Trade Fair.

Quite simply the BNTA’s size and influence mean that this annual get-together of dealers is one of the best places to find valuable coins of every conceivable age and quality.
The involvement of the BNTA also gives buyers peace of mind about the provenance of what they are buying. Every dealer this year will either be a member of the association or have been invited specifically to set up shop because they are known to be reputable. A total of more than 45 exhibitors are in attendance, representing the top UK numismatic traders, auction houses and European dealers.
It’s worth noting that over the years Coinex has expanded to include more than just rare coins. Everything from banknotes and medals to bonds and shares will be on sale, so even people with a passing interest in rarities and collectables should make an effort to attend.
With the event increasing in size year on year, you can also expect to see antiques of other types mixed in amongst the stalls, ensuring there’s something for everyone.
The 2023 Coinex event will be from 29 September 2023 – 30 September 2023. Opening times are 11am-4,30pm on Friday 29th Sep (last entry 4pm). VIP entrance fee £30. Saturday 30th Sep 10am-3.30pm (last entry 3pm), entrance fee just £5.
Some people buying precious coins just for the thrill of collecting rare, historic objects. Others do so to make an investment in a physical commodity that will appreciate in value. Whichever category you fall into, Coinex should pique your interest. Gold coins have historically kindled the interest of numismatists and investors alike. As a stable asset class, gold coins add balance to an investment portfolio. Silver coins, on the other hand, have gained popularity over the years, as investors see the white metal as a promising investment vehicle that could provide rich returns in the foreseeable future.
