Rob Oberth, president of RoundTable Trading – an association for coin dealers and collectors – became the newest member of the American Numismatic Association’s (ANA) Board of Governors on March 12, 2020.

Oberth has been active in the numismatic community, spearheading the Great American Coin Hunt during the 2019 National Coin Week and arranging with dealers to place millions of collectible coins back into circulation to generate excitement about the hobby among the general public. Oberth currently serves on the ANA Membership Committee, Marketing Committee and is chair of the IT Committee.
Oberth’s term will conclude at the 2021 World’s Fair of Money®, along with the rest of the current board.
