On May 20, 2016, the Sociedad Numismática de México (Mexican Numismatic Society) bestowed upon Salt Lake City author Allan Schein the Alberto Francisco Pradeau Award for his bi-lingual book Mexican Beauty: Un Peso Caballito. The congratulatory letter announcing this prestigious award cited that Mr. Schein’s “investigation, study and conclusions are considered of great merit for the understanding of Mexican Numismatics”.

A formal presentation of the award will be made at the 63rd SONUMEX Convention in Mexico City on September 2, “when we will take the opportunity for delivering the award medal in hand as a show of our gratitude and recognition for your splendid work”.

Mr. Schein’s book was the recipient of the Numismatic Literary Guild’s (NLG) 2015 Best World Coin Book at last summer’s ANA Convention in Chicago. The Central States Numismatic Society (CSNS) awarded him an Author’s Grant for his forthcoming book The $2½ & $5 Gold Indians of Bela Lyon Pratt, which will be available at this summer’s ANA Convention in Anaheim.

Unusual for a numismatist, Mr. Schein is a Taekwondo Grandmaster, having achieved the rank of 8th Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo Jidokwan on December 7, 2015. His promotion was presented by his Grandmaster Dong Keun Park, former captain of the Korean National Taekwondo team and Head Coach for the United States 1992 Olympic Taekwondo team in Barcelona.

Mr. Schein will be in attendance at the 2016 ANA World’s Fair of Money in Anaheim, spending some time at the Central States Numismatic Society booth.
