The Beijing International Stamp and Coin Expo 2012 will be held from 2 to 4 November and will attract collectors from around China and the world.
The expo will be held at the Exhibition Hall of the China World Trade Center in Beijing - China's bustling capital city. It will provide an opportunity for Chinese and international exhibitors to showcase their numismatic and philatelic products on a global scale.
Since its first opening in 1995, the Beijing International Stamp and Coin Expo has developed into one of the most prestigious numismatic and philatelic events in Asia. In 2011 the three-day show attracted over 200 exhibitors and more than 30,000 visitors.
Commemorate the expo with unique collectables!
New Zealand Post is issuing a unique exhibition miniature sheet and souvenir cover to celebrate the expo.
