The World Money Fair is an international bourse of coins. A bourse is where dealers, collectors and the public buy, sell and trade coins.

In 1970 Albert M. Beck founded the "Organisation of European Coin-Bourses", "Organisation Europäischer Münzen-Börsen" (OEMB) in Munich. He nurtured an idea of building up a stronger market for the collecting of coins.

Two years later the first international bourse of coins took place in Basel. Over the years it was developed into the "World Money Fair". Today more than 40 nations are members of this organisation. In 2006, the bourse moved to Berlin. During the first convention in the German capital, the German Secretary of State Karl Diller presented the new German 2 Euro Coin. It shows the Holstentor of Lübeck.
