Coin Grading, Problem Coins and Conservation

(Prior to the Philadelphia World’s Fair of Money)

The biggest mistake collectors and dealers make is buying coins they shouldn’t have purchased in the first place—coins that have grade, surface or conservation issues that they didn’t see. This seminar will help students avoid costly mistakes by developing their grading skills and teaching them to spot a wide variety of surface problems, enhancements, alterations and conservation issues that can adversely affect a coin’s grade. The material covered is comprehensive and suitable for novice and experienced collectors. The seminar uses images, discussion and hands-on examination of hundreds of coins in the ANA’s Grading Sets.

  • Instructor: Brian Silliman
  • Date & Time: August 12-13; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Cost: $259; Register by June 29 for a $25 discount. ANA life members save an additional $40.
  • Location: Philadelphia Marriott Downtown

Fundamentals of Digital Photography

(During the Philadelphia World’s Fair of Money)

Learn the basics of numismatic photography, from shooting images to preparing them for the web, presentations or publication using Adobe Photoshop. Students should bring their own “macro-capable” cameras and several coins they would like to photograph and are encouraged to bring their own high-speed laptops and software.

  • Instructor: Clark Fogg and David Heinrich
  • Date & Time: August 16-17; 10 a.m. to 3 p.m
  • Cost: $359; Register by June 29 for a $25 discount. ANA life members save an additional $40.
