After very careful consideration, the organizers have made the decision to reschedule the 2nd Coin Conference that was due to take place on March 12-13 2013 in Berlin. The new dates of the conference have been confirmed as October 28-30, 2013.
Following the successful inaugural Coin Conference in London in 2011, there has been a very high level of interest and support for the 2nd Coin Conference. However, with a heavily-congested industry conference calendar in the first part of 2013, a number of central banks, mints and suppliers have suggested that the organizersÂ move the event to later on in the year, when there will be fewer scheduling conflicts.
The organizersÂ have also received a number of requests to expand the programme in order to accommodate some workshops, especially on new and technical developments.
The organizersÂ have carefully considered these suggestions and have made the decision to move the date. This will enable them to expand the scope of the conference, and is a decision that they are confident will enable even more coin professionals to attend.
The organizersÂ have retained the same venue – the Palace Hotel in Berlin â€“ and, other than the inclusion of the additional day of workshops, the format will be the same as previously advertised. The conference will begin on Monday, October 28 with two optional workshops and general conference registration, followed in the evening by the opening cocktail reception. The conference presentations will take place on October 29 and 30, followed on October 31 by an optional tour (for central banks and coin issuers) of the facilities of Saxonia Mint of Finland in HalsbrÃ¼cke.
The Coin Conference remains the only specialist event for circulation coins, focusing on design, security and cost-effective production, as well as handling, distribution and management in circulation. It is aimed at the government bodies responsible for coin issue â€“ central banks and treasury departments â€“ as well as mints and suppliers of materials and equipment for production, handling, processing, verification, counting, distribution and reclamation. The objectives of discussion, debate and education on the critical issues facing coin issuers remains unchanged, despite the change of date.

The organizersÂ look forward to seeing you in October at what will now be a larger and more comprehensive event.
