Hixenbaugh Ancient Art is pleased to announce its participation in the 42nd annual New York International Numismatic Convention. From Thursday January 9th through Sunday January 12th, Hixenbaugh Ancient Art with exhibit its fine quality authentic antiquities and ancient coins on the 18th floor of New York’s historic Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

The New York International Numismatic Convention is the United States’ most prestigious numismatic events. With over 100 participants, the convention offers a wide variety of numismatics from modern coinage through antiquity. The event also includes a full range of educational programs, a special numismatic literature sale and multiple auctions conducted by many leading numismatic auction houses from around the world.

Hixenbaugh Ancient Art will be exhibiting its collection of ancient coins and a representative sample of its desirable ancient objects at this year’s convention. Ancient coins are highly collectible for their direct ties to the past as well as their artistic appeal. Ancient coins were not merely used to facilitate commerce but also to spread propaganda. Much thought was given to the meaning behind the imagery on ancient coinage. As such, the coins were very artfully designed. Much information about ancient cultures can be gleaned from reading and interpreting ancient coins. In addition to ancient coins, Hixenbaugh Ancient Art will display many other fine quality ancient objects.

Hixenbaugh Ancient Art is participating in this fair for its 10th consecutive year and is pleased for the opportunity to exhibit once again. Hixenbaugh Ancient Art’s coins as well as many other antiquities are on view and available at our New York gallery (Tuesday – Saturday 11am – 6pm) and can be viewed on our web site (http://www.hixenbaugh.net).

At Hixenbaugh Ancient Art, we believe that responsible collecting of antiquities is not only a pleasurable pursuit and wise investment, but an important responsibility. Today's collectors are custodians of the past, links in a chain, preserving the past for future generations by passing their collections on to their heirs, reselling them to eager collectors, or donating them to museums. In doing so, the collector of ancient art reaps the many benefits of acquiring truly unique and thought provoking objects that have come down to us from the ancients, whose influences pervade every aspect of the modern world.
