The American Numismatic Association

The American Numismatic Association is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to educating and encouraging people to study and collect money and related items. ana_logo_2016With nearly 24,000 members, the Association serves the academic community, collectors and the general public with an interest in numismatics.

Today, the ANA headquarters in Colorado Springs, Colorado houses the largest circulating numismatic library in the world. Books, educational slide programs and instructional videotapes are loaned to members without charge other than postage and insurance. Also on the premises is a museum that includes extensive and ever-growing collections of coins, medals, tokens and paper money. Members may study the items on display and, by prearrangement, can use other museum materials for research purposes.


The Numismatist Rolls Out Retail Price Guide

The official publication of the ANA, The Numismatist, and The Coin Dealer Newsletter (CDN), have teamed up to provide ANA members a retail pricing tool for collectable U.S. and Early American coinage. Look for the “Collector’s Price Guide” (CPG) in this month’s issue of the magazine (pp 125-32). Moving forward, each monthly supplement offers up-to-date values for a variety of U.S. coin types and denominations on a regular rotation, with early coppers, cents and nickels in June, silver in July, and gold in August.

The “Collector’s Price Guide” is intended as a hobby resource only and should be used in combination with other numismatic references as part of a practical, informed purchasing plan. CDN Publishing is solely responsible for the content of the guide.
