Vinyl records are now the hottest trend among collectors, attracting people from every age group, as shown by the high level of interest in the Vinyl & Stereo Expo event, which took place in parallel with the Sberatel /Collector fair, on Saturday, in the lobby of the PVA EXPO Exhibition Center, with salesmen from the Czech Republic, Germany, Austria and France in attendance. The next year´s event will take place on September 8, 2018.
We thank all collectors and exhibitors for taking part in this year´s Sberatel / Collector fair. Almost ten thousand people made it to the exhibition site, and especially on Friday it was sometimes downright impossible to get through the aisles. The fair has thus confirmed once again its position as the biggest collectors´ event in Central and Eastern Europe. The next year´s event will take place on the PVA Expo Prague Exhibition Center between September 7 and 8 2018.
Come and sample the excellent Czech beer “Bakalář” at the Sberatel / Collector fair stand during the international philatelic fair in Sindelfingen! It will be on tap between October 26 and 28. In addition to information on the next year´s Sberatel /Collector fair, we will also be happy to provide all info on the Praga 2018 World Philatelic Exhibition.
The “Mauritius in Bohemia” – a new stamp of the Czech Post showing the most famous stamp of the world will be presented for the first time at the Sberatel / Collector fair! It is an illustration of the stamp which was bought together with Red Mauritius stamps on the so-called “Bombay Cover” in 2016 and this year by an unknown Czech collector for more than a hundred million Czech Korunas. Both philatelic jewels will be displayed during the Praga 2018 World Philatelic Exhibition.
The Czech Republic has its own “bullion coin” – the Czech Lion! A number of new products and items will be presented during the Investor Prague Show and the Sberatel / Collector fair, including the first Czech investment coin, “Czech Lion” produced by Czech Mint, thanks to which the Czech Republic will rank among the few countries that mint so-called “bullion coins”. The Czech coin with a very good graphic design will thus stand side by side with other traditional investment coins, including Krugerrand, Maple Leaf, Kangaroo, or American Eagle. Visit the Czech Mint stand at any of the two events mentioned above, or take a look at www.mint.cz.
