World Money Fair cancelled


20 December 2021
The World Money Fair, set to be held in Berlin from 28 to 30 January, has been cancelled for the second year running, with an online version set to take its place.

The major coin event was first held in the 1970s and moved to the German capital in 2006.

Unfortunately the continuing battle against the Covid19 pandemic has forced the organisers to postpone the physical event for a second time.

Barbara Balz, the show’s Managing Director, said:

‘None of us believed that we would be faced with the decision a second time whether or not to hold the World Money Fair as planned. But our customers have shown the way in the last few days. We have been given many reasons for the numerous cancellations of stands, boxes and traders’ tables, and the natural consequence is the same in all the cases: no exhibitors, no fair. There are simply too many cancellations to make the event meaningful. It is therefore with great regret that we hereby inform you that we will not be holding the World Money Fair 2022 in Berlin as planned at the end of January. A new date has not yet been set.

‘Instead, we will hold the World Money Fair #DigitalFair again in February. This format made a very positive impression the first time, as collectors really embraced the digital fair… It would have been a great pleasure to meet you all again in Berlin. Unfortunately, we still have to be patient. But the time will come.’
