1893 Columbian Expo

The 1893 Columbian Expo which was held in Chicago was a significant event in history. Many technology and manufacturing firsts happened at the fair. The Ferris Wheel made its debut here. The elongated coins that people normally collect at Disney World or the zoo actually first appeared at this fair also.

Thank you to all of my supporters and watchers of my website. I have good news and bad news. The good news is, I will finally be updating the website during the summer of 2012 to include a lot more pictures of medals. There will be a lot of additions. However, I will probably only keep it to one metal type for each listing. The bad news is, I have put the book project on indefinite hold. Due to cost and time, I cannot continue at this time. I will keep all the files and maybe one day I can pick it up and finish it off, but for now, it's on hold.

I have also decided to sell off my collection this year so at some point in the fall, you may see a large catalog of Columbian Exposition medals out there. I will try to post more details once everything is finalized. I think the catalog will be an incredible reference and I anticipate the picture quality being exceptional. Stay tuned.
