The American Numismatic Association’s (ANA) second annual live Young Numismatist (YN) Auction will take place on Saturday, September 24, at 10:00 a.m. Mountain Standard Time (MST).
The standout lots in the live auction are guaranteed to delight and surprise. Lots include a rare 1807 Draped Bust quarter; a silver 1327-1377 English four pence groat; and, holding to tradition, a 1984 Canada 10 dollar quarter-ounce Maple Leaf coin—made of .9999 fine gold.
All 100 lots can be viewed in the YN Auction Catalog (PDF).
“This is the second year the annual YN Auction will broadcast live from ANA headquarters,” said ANA Numismatic Educator Sam Gelberd. “Once again, we’ve assembled a catalog of wonderful numismatic items. There’s a little something for everybody, including multiple grab bag lots and a rarely seen National Coin Week poster from 1990.”
The auction will be conducted over a live video stream on the ANA’s YouTube channel. Participants will place bids in the chat section using YN Dollars. To participate in the online auction, YN’s must have a Google account – create an account here.
To register for the auction, participants must email their name, address, and phone number from their Gmail account; those registering will receive a confirmation email. Visit www.money.org on Sept. 24 to be directed to the auction.
To ensure that auction dollars are received prior to the event, YN’s are encouraged to submit all YN Dollar requests no later than Monday, September 12.
“With the vast majority of coin auctions moving to an online format, we also felt it was important from an educational standpoint to give the YNs a chance to bid online so they can learn how to be more savvy when bidding,” said ANA Education Director Rod Gillis.
The regular monthly YN auction will resume October 1.
