Good evening,

I wonder if anyone was in Berlin last week-end. Was it worth it? What did you like most? Could you just share any of your impressions?

Thanks

No, I was not there; for me, Berlin is not close enough for a convenient one-day trip. But you could have seen the two "gold giants" there - the Austrian 31 kg piece and the Canadian 100 kg thing. And visitors were allowed to touch and hold the beast from Canada. :wink:

What makes the WMF such an important event is that it is a combination of a regular coin show (big one though) and a presentation of dozens of national mints and numismatic offices, an auction and a media forum, etc. ...
