David Sundman, president of Littleton Coin Company in Littleton, NH, is the 2016 recipient of the American Numismatic Association’s (ANA) Harry J. Forman Dealer of the Year Award. The award honors a professional numismatist who shows uncommon dedication to strengthening the hobby and the Association and displays exemplary ethical standards as a numismatic dealer.

Unlike many numismatists, David Sundman grew up with a mail-order stamp and coin business, which was founded by his parents, Maynard and Fannie. By age five, David was sorting bags of Indian Head cents by dates and was well on his numismatic voyage.

After gaining business experience with a retail chain in the Washington, D.C. area, he joined the family collectibles firm, Littleton Coin Company, in 1972 and was named president in 1985.

“It’s a real surprise and honor to receive this award. However, the true ‘Dealer of the Year’ award should be shared with our entire Littleton Coin organization of more than 300 staff,” said David. “Over the past 70 years, we’ve gathered a talented group of people who continue diligently every day to make Littleton Coin a better company, which serves collectors all over the nation.”

A life member of the ANA, David is also a member of the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG), a Fellow of the American Numismatic Society (ANS), and Treasurer of the Numismatic Bibliomania Society (NBS).

A prolific author, David is a current contributor to A Guide Book of United States Coins (the “Red Book”) and a co-author of the best-selling book 100 Greatest American Currency Notes with Q. David Bowers.

David is a frequent presenter at ANA conventions and has received the organization’s Century Club Award (1997), Exemplary Service Award (1997), Presidential Award (2001), Glenn Smedley Memorial Award (2001), and Medal of Merit (2003) for his contributions to the Association’s numismatic and educational programs.

Legacy Series Recognition

Sundman also will be recognized at the Anaheim World’s Fair of Money® during the Legacy Series, an event moderated by Editor-in-Chief of The Numismatist, Barbara Gregory. The event will honor and celebrate David, who has significantly impacted the numismatic community through his vision, leadership, and trend-setting within the hobby.

Dealer Booster Award

Sundman also will receive this year’s Dealer Booster Award on behalf of Littleton Coin Company during the Member and Donor Reception in Anaheim. Littleton’s membership efforts garnered 128 new ANA members.
