Beyond the bourse of the Spring 2020 National Postage Stamp and Coin Show, collectors are invited to participate in a series of four keynote presentations highlighting a handful of exciting topics.
Regardless of their interests, show-goers are sure to find something to engage their specific area of collecting. Among the topics of discussion this spring are numismatic literature; philatelic specialization; thematic or topical collecting; and combining your hobby with travel.
Each of the talks will be about an hour long and include time for discussions.
Each spring, the National Show also features the 77th Annual North Toronto Stamp Club Exhibition, which features about 80 frames of competitive stamp exhibits plus a court of honour featuring past national-level gold-medal displays.
See the bottom of this page for a floor plan with the main areas of interest highlighted.
