Hixenbaugh Ancient Art to Exhibit at New York International Numismatic Convention

. January 20, 2013

Hixenbaugh Ancient Art announce its participation in the 41st annual New York International Numismatic Convention. From Thursday January 10th through Sunday January 14th, Hixenbaugh Ancient Art will exhibit its fine quality authentic antiquities and ancient coins on the 18th floor of New York’s historic Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

Domitian 81-96 AD

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, several newly acquired ancient Greek helmets, as well as many other fine quality ancient objects, will also be on display.

Hixenbaugh Ancient Art is participating in this fair for its 9th consecutive year and is pleased for the opportunity to exhibit once again. Gallery director, Randall Hixenbaugh stated, “The New York International Numismatic Convention is a great way to start to the new year. Ancient Coins provide us with a unique glimpse into the traditions and beliefs of ancient cultures as interesting miniature works of art that passed through the hands of our ancient ancestors.” Our coins as well as many other important 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).
