The American Numismatic Society (ANS) is proud to now offer a new and much anticipated publication for sale, Medallic Art of the American Numismatic Society, 1865-2014: Studies in Medallic Art 2. The hardcover book, by Scott H. Miller, includes 60 medals issued by the ANS, two COAC medals and the 1910 Actors’ Fund Medal, all accompanied by color photographs.

Many of the entries are supplemented with artist sketches, archival photographs, and corresponding stories. Also included are four appendixes, which note recipients of some of the medals and contains a list of dies, hubs, galvanos and casts of ANS medals in the ANS’s own collection.

medallicart2smCommenting on the new book, Andrew Reinhard, Director of Publications, said “The ANS has been a leader in the publication of art medals in the U.S. for the past 150 years. The issuance of medals has been at the forefront of the ANS mission since its inception, as they are as important as coinage in terms of history and beauty. Working with Scott Miller to produce the book was a rewarding experience, and we are all very happy that it is now available to the public.”

Medallic Art of the American Numismatic Society, 1865-2014 is available for purchase on the ANS website or by calling Catherine DiTuri at (212) 571-4470, ext. 117. List price is $100; ANS member may purchase it for $70.
