Amarillo Coin Show

Internet creates new challenges for coin collectors

From coins to cash, the Amarillo Civic Center is full of money this weekend, but not the kind you can necessarily still spend.

The Golden Spread Coin Club is hosting it's coin and currency show on Saturday and Sunday.

Dealers from Texas and the surrounding states are set up inside the Civic Center displaying their collections.

Some of the money dates back to the 1860's which makes this show unique. But in recent years, collectors like Jim Fitzgerald say they the internet has created some challenges when it comes to selling, dealing and showing off their coins. "Some of us still like the look and feel. You want to touch it, you want to look at it before you buy it and that's the beauty of going to a show or going to a shop," Fitzgerald said.

The coin show will be open again on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Civic Center.
