Programme Highlights & Outline

The programme has a specific theme on each of the three days – starting with Global Challenges, moving to New Horizons, and then debating Future Opportunities.

The structure of the programme will be modular, with plenary sessions on each day covering the big issues, streamed sessions focusing on the collector, circulation and bullion markets, and then interactive break-out sessions (workshops) diving even deeper into specific topics. This format provides the opportunity to cover a multitude of topics relating to coins and the minting industry, with plenty to excite the interest and appetites of everyone.

Topics covered will include:

Collector coins – innovation, legal tender status, designs and trends, creating a successful secondary market
Bullion – creating an ethical business model, the investment case
Circulating coins – the note/coin boundary, seigniorage, optimising the denomination mix
Technology and innovation – in materials, design and production, quality control and inspection, processing, authentication, marketing
Tools and techniques for creating the next generation of coin enthusiast
Case studies of successful coin campaigns
Corporate social responsibility – making the industry and its products clean, green and ethically responsible
The full programme will be published in mid-February.
