Over $1 million worth of rare coins were on display Saturday for the first annual Black Hills Coin Club Show. To be considered rare, Black Hills Coin Collectors President Richard Phipps says coins must be minted before 1964. Some coins at the show date all the way back to the 1700's.

Most of the collectors at the show have been collecting rare coins and stamps for decades.

"We have Roman coins, we have gold coins, silver coins, a lot of silver dollars, most of the coins are old and rare."

The South Dakota State Coin Association will hold its next annual event in Apr. 2008 at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center in Rapid City.
